Real Life Leadership situation..Feed the good wolves!!


A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.
He said, 'I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the
vengeful, violent one, the other wolf is the loving compassionate one.' The
grandson asked him, 'Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?' The grandfather
answered, 'The one I feed.'

How do we avoid feeding the vengeful and violent wolf?

This wolf is very attractive and without any hardwork in short run and but can be detrimental to us in long run.

The other wolf does not seem to be attractive in short run but can be very fruitful in life in longer run.

We are in this type of cross roads most of the times in our daily life.

The best way to to resolve this type of dilemma is at the individual level,the changes we need to do is in our conscious level of mind every time we face such situations.

One way is to not to take the decisions ourselves.This does not mean we should everytime consult someone else.Many a times its not possible for an individual is because of the privacy.

So whats the way out ?Who will take the decision for us?

Treat ourselves as a company and like companies important decisions by putting up the proposal in front of the Board of Directors,we should appoint a virtual Board of Directors.

In the Board we should keep our family members,important persons in our life ,career and also we can appoint certain personalities Mahatma Gandhi,Nelson Mandela,etc.

Before taking any decision the best thing is bring the proposal in front of our Board.Let the board members take a decision for us.

What will our kids say about this decision?What will our parents say about this decision?What will our teachers say?What will eminent personalities say about this?

By this practice we can always feed the good wolves in our heart.

So who's on your Board ?

Who is on your board. Honestly it is very easy to say but to practice it is very tough. It is similar going to a stage and performing in front of 10000 people. very easy to say but hard to do. it will give butterflies in your stomach if yu stage perform it for the first time. Be honest with yourself and think how many times have you spent quality time with your wife and kids and have actually thought about their feelings and emotions. going to a mall, watching a movie and eating a dinner in a restaurant is not the solution. we need to understand our family and be a source of motivation to them. problem is we try to communicate good things to the world without realising that we have ourselves not experienced and demonstrated it. what do you say. do not feel bad but i am a critic and would like to brainstorm each and every individual thought. what do you say sir

do we actually need people to say that this is wrong with you and then you act upon it to improve yourselves. Are we not capable of giving feedback to ourselves for a journey called as Life. The feedback that we expect is that some person will give me some gyan and then this gyan will really help me being popular, get a promotion in corporate life and more money. Why do we always desire that people should talk good about me they should comment that Pijush is a good leader and is very intelligent. What do we really want in life. think about the people who are not so fortunate like us. in our country many people do not even get one time food in a day. We live in a funny country where pizza reaches faster than a ambulance and where car loan is easy available than a education loan.
