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.”
