Right from our birth, we remain fearful of one thing or the other. If the mother goes somewhere leaving the child alone or with some strangers, it feels fearful and insecured lest somebody should harm him. This feeling of fear remains ingrained in us throughout our life provided we learn the technique to overcome this predominant feeling. This feeling of fearfulness comes in the way of realizing our dreams to the full and giving us the satisfaction of living our lives to the lees.

If we want to grow in life, we will have to overcome the feeling of fearfulness and welcome change in life-we will have to reinforce to our subconscious mind that change is essential to the growth in life causing us more happiness- more satisfaction from life-living a more fulfilled life.. No one in this world would perhaps want to live with a feeling of dissatisfaction of not grabing the opportunities before him because he gave in to the feeling of fear-fear arising out of a change in his routine life. In order to allay this fear, we will have to keep our conscious mind in control and reinforce to our subconscious mind that change is essential to growth, happiness and satisfaction out of life. It will add more colour to our lives. If we give in to fear and do not make full use of opportunities before us, we will ruin our dream of a better life and will be filled with regret of not being able to live our life to the fullest and as the years pass by, this feeling of remorse would become all the more magnified. We may give excuses after excuses to obtain sympathy from our family members and friends for not being able to grab the opportunity lying before us but we cannot fool ourselves. Deep inside us we know the truth. As the saying is, “ Life comes with obstacles. Obstacles that must be pursued. No matter how rough the obstacle." And as R Sydney J. Harris writes in his column “Strictly Personal“ that “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.”

This has some great thoughts about fear.

You may want to think of a shorter title. Something more eye catching. Pique my interest.

This is a great start. Good job.

Very insightful. Ease up on the heaviness and make this a little lighter to read and it will be a seller for sure! I like the way you conveyed your ideas. I would also contmeplate a shorter title. Overall good writing. Keep up the good work.
