    Season 6; Episode 16 (116) - ON FEEDING THE POSITIVE VOICE - Stoicism For a Better Life Podcast

    There is a White Wolf (positive voice) and a Dark Wolf (negative wolf). The Dark Wolf inside us is filled with fear, anger, envy, jealousy, greed, and arrogance. The White Wolf is filled with peace, love, hope, courage, humility, compassion, and faith. They battle constantly, so make sure you feed the one you want, not the one your body (the vessel) wants.

Moreover, it is 100% detrimental to our mental health and general attitude. Practicing gratitude is the single most effective tool against pessimism. So, grab a pen and your journal and practice gratitude to save your body, mind, soul and general attitude towards life.

If you have trouble attaining happiness, then you are probably defining it the wrong way. Let me share with you what our ancient Stoic teachers had to say.

Wonderfully sincere, thoughtful, and inspiring. Thank you Anderson.
