Writing Challenge, Entry 6 : Choice & Fear

Somethings we don’t have – not because we are unable to attain them, but because we chose not to have them.

Everyone should know by now that the key variable which holds us back from having all of our dreams-attained is our own fear. Be it fear of consequences, fear of pain, fear of failure, fear of, fear of, fear of fear. Fear keeps us complacent and accepting of our own current state, and this can be our greatest enemy which prevents us from growing and becoming profound.

Dears, in the last paragraph I had no idea if I should use ‘that’ or ‘which’ and though it hardly matters I’m sure – I think I used the wrong word and they should read ‘that holds’ and ‘that prevents’. Fear holds and prevents, but I fear not to continue on. You may continue to Grammar Girl if you do care to learn the difference.

Face your fears and attain All. I’ll not take my time explaining ways of which (theres that word again) one is able to do this, as I’ll simply guide you here to read this article: Overcoming Fear .

And I’ll end with two slices of bread:

Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest and most influential boxers and athletes in all of history disliked to train. He hated the effort of eating right, day in and day out, of sweating heavy, and exhausting his body and muscles in the efforts to teach them to grow stronger the next day just so he could do it all over again. But it was worth it. Training is not fun, but for Ali – the end made the means worth it, as look at his legacy left behind today.

“Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.” – Lao Tzu

  1. And now I know that I have been using “that” and “which” all wrong for all these years.

    Fear. Nicely stated.
