A Native American elder was asked how he handled his own inner struggles about his abilities and achieving his intentions for himself and his people.
He replied: “Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is unhappy, insecure and full of doubt. The other dog is joyful and confident. The doubtful dog fights the confident dog all the time.”
When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied,
“The one I feed the most.”
