Relative to (compared to) the whole scheme of things (the way things usually happen), your life span (period) could be compared to lighting a candle and immediately (very soon) blowing it out. In other words, life is short – very short. Missing out on (Not having the chance to enjoy) any of the joys life offers (gives) is a tragedy (very sad event).
If your life is being controlled by your fears, you are most certainly cheating (dishonest to; tricking) yourself. Courage (Being brave) is the mental muscle that conquers (defeats; gets control over) fear. Like all muscles, the more you use them, the stronger they become. Courage is not something you are born with, it must be developed. Individuals (People) who fail to develop courage, they remain confined (limited) in mental prisons and face (spend) each day as mental lightweights (people with no importance or influence).
It has been said if you face (fight; deal with) the thing you fear, fear leaves you.
For years I believed that courageous (brave) individuals had no fear. I was wrong. Eddie Richenbacher put it very well when he said "There is no courage without fear". We all have fear, however, not everyone becomes subservient (obedient; servant) to their fears.
There is, very likely, something you have wanted to do for years – move to another city, start your own business, apply (try out, asking ) for that better position (job), go after (want to have) the big account (money saved in the bank). Whatever it is you should do it.
Remember, life is not a practice run. This is it. A little courage leads to more. Observe those poor souls (people) who are without courage. They merely tiptoe (walk quietly and carefully) through life hoping they make it safely to death. You and I were never meant to (should not) live that way. Learn to live the way you like by no longer living as (the way) you dislike. Forge into (Continue) the remainder (rest) of your day with an abundance (too much) of courage. That's living!
