There’s a fantastic story that’s been circulating the Internet for years about two wolves. The story is being shared by grandfather with his grandson.
The story goes they are constantly doing battle within us. One represents all that is positive and good. The other represents all that is negative.
The grandson finally asks, “Grandfather, which wolf win?” The grandfather answers, “The one you feed.”
Dreams and doubts are the same way. If you feed your doubts and focus on all the obstacles to your dreams, they will grow larger and larger. If, instead, you feed your dreams, they will grow stringer and stronger in your consciousness until they manifest.
So, my question for you today is, “Which one will you feed?”
The average water well is 100 to 500 feet deep. As you walk around on the earth’s surface, you can’t see the well water. You could dig 100 thirty-foot holes and not reach one drop of water.
This might frustrate you because digging 100 such holes without return is a lot of work for nothing.
Are you digging shallow wells in your life? Are you spreading yourself so thin that you can’t give any one “well” the time and effort required to get your “well water?”
Whatever your goals, ample time and effort spent on one or a few goals is like digging the well until you hit water. Having too many goals or responsibilities leaves your life pock marked with half dug wells. You might be frustrated because you’re putting in a ton of effort and not getting results.
Try to limit yourself to one to three big goals at a time. How many depends on the goals and how much time you have to devote to them.
Always be reassessing your goals to make sure you’re working on what’s most important. It’s OK to abandon half-dug wells to make room for more important priorities.
When you commit to a goal, dig it all the way until you hit the “well water.”
If the goal’s worth achieving, it’s worth going all the way.
Good evening, Team Affirmation! As I sit here at the pool, we’re closing out an amazing three week trip to Kauai today. We catch a sun-up plane back to Kansas City first thing tomorrow.
Success. It’s one of those words like happiness that has a different meaning for every person. One person might be seeking financial or career success. For another person, success might be progress on their spiritual path. Still others, might consider success just making it through the stresses of another week.
Whatever your definition, this affirmation, listened to regularly, infuses your consciousness with a firm belief that your biggest success is within reach and that you have the skills and the mindset to manifest it.
This one comes in two flavors – meditative and active – depending on where you’re listening. Affirmations are more effective with repetition. If you’re trying to bring more success into your sphere right now, spend six minutes a day listening to this affirmation for the next couple weeks.
Everyone needs a dream. As long as you’re here, there’s still the possibility of being the person you came to the planet to be.
Embrace BIG thinking. Some believe small thinking is safer because there’s less risk of disappointment.
In those moments when you want to believe that, think of 95 year old you. Will that future version of you be happy you played it completely safe or will they only wish they’d done something big when they had the chance?
At the end of the day, big thinking and small thinking achieve the same thing. They give you a life that matches the thinking.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!
