“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”, said a noted American Author Anais Nin. The statement appears to be very simple, however it is very true.

When one is fearless, the possibilities of achievements in life appear to be infinite thereby expanding his or her life. Conversely when one nurses fear of failure one adopts avoidance behaviour and the possibilities of successes fall down drastically thereby equally shrinking an individual’s life.

Children are fearless, hence they dream big. They are carefree of rejections and failures therefore their dreams and possibilities seem infinite. But as one grows up, he or she comes across challenges of life and may face failures and rejections thereby accepts limitations. Limitations may be of skill-set, finances, or abilities. Many people view their limitations as obstacles and they are unable to overcome those hence they turn to be risk-averse and adopt avoidance behaviour.

Avoidance behaviour shrinks their dreams, goals and life. Conversely there are people, who despite all obstacles and limitations strive for success and achieve the goal. Such people make their dreams come true and their life expands because of their courage and absence of fear of failure.

Life is neither a bed of roses nor a bed of thorns – it the mixture of success, failure, obstacles and difficulties. What matters is the quality of life one leads. When one’s life consists of dreams and goals, it depends on one’s determination, dedication and perseverance.

In conclusion it is up to an individual to make the most his or her life. If one chooses to live life as coward, one will lose the opportunity to expand the life to his or her satisfaction. Whereas if one chooses to live life in a courageous manner, without fearing about failures, one will achieve the goals successfully and expand his or her life beyond horizon to one’s self esteem level.
