Which Wolf Will You Feed? How to Change Your Life by Changing Your Thoughts by Michael Stribling is a concise self-help volume that allows you to step back, think, and change the thoughts that are not nurturing yourself (quite the contrary actually !). It focuses on what is hurting us, what can be done, and is perfectly completed by a comprehensive and fun appendix including mantras. The author also shares the link to the book's website as well as the Native American story telling us that two wolves are fighting for supremacy within us and that our happiness and well-being depends on which one we feed.
Which Wolf Will You Feed? by Michael Stribling is a fantastic self-help manual that will help you grow, believe in yourself, and most importantly try to change some negative thoughts that are keeping you stuck in a vicious circle, and which are bound to encumber your mind, cause you pain, stress you out. Yet, as Michael Stribling reminds us, stress and negative thoughts are extremely detrimental to our well-being. That is actually why he wrote this book. Being a licensed psychotherapist, he knows what prevents most people from really enjoying their lives. This work is comprehensive and includes challenges and opportunities, practical points to ponder, an appendix focusing on deep breathing, mantras (and how to write your own mantras), being positive.
I thank the author for this book, for the way he wrote it, making the reader an active reader by including simple but powerful reflection questions after each part, thus allowing us to grow. He also stresses such things as the fact that we become addicted to our feelings and that it is difficult to change and that is something I had not taken into account. In short, a must-have for anyone who wants to be less stressed out.
