The title of this essay is attributed to Pubilius Syrus 85-43 BC who was brought to Rome as a Syrian slave but later given his freedom He then became it is said a playwright and moral teacher Whether he is the author or not the saying contains valuable insights Mainly for each courageous act we perform we grow more courageous and every time we retreat from danger we grow more fearful It is important then to occasionally reflect on the principle of life If we remember that the way we respond to fearful situations determines whether we become timid or models of strength we would choose our actions more carefully Whenever we are stuck by fear we are standing at a fork in the road One branch of the road leads to cowardice the other to courage One fork leads to our desires and dreams the other to disappointment and despair Fear is a beacon pointing the way to a new opportunity It is and invitation to stretch ourselves and experience more of our potential If were not watchful and succumb to fear it will inhibit our growth Growth is synonymous with change How can we make progress by standing still Yet many of us resist change preferring to remain in our comfort zone For those who choose to do so Stan Dale has this to say Comfort zones are plush lined coffins When you stay in your plush lined coffins you die Imagine a developing butterfly refusing to leave its chrysalis cocoon Unless its willing to spend a great deal of energy to break free it will not reach its potential and become a butterfly But for those that make the effort the rewards are great The exhilaration of flight The joy of becoming fluttering flowers shimmering with colour What about us Are we willing to break through our chrysalis If we want to soar badly enough we will make the effort
