15 minutes challenge #7

“You sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”

“Are you trying to say that I’m a coward?” inquired Khalid.

Smirking, Syahdan adjusted his glasses and in a dry pleasant voice he said “Well, there is a thin line between cowardice and bravery.  In certain cases you couldn’t really tell whether you did something out of your bravery or the other way around.”

“What do you mean?  Of course we could tell“  Contradict Khalid.

In life we’re driven by our emotion more than our mind.  Let say a man with acrophobia.  When he climbs up a tall tree within a few minutes, what does it tells you?  Is that making him a brave man?”

“It’s depend on the situation, I guess”, said Khalid.

“What if he climbed the tree because there was a tiger trying to kill him?  So, his fear had driven him to climb the tree.  His mind was unable to think of his fear of height caused his was too focused on saving himself from the tiger” explained Syahdan.

“And that’s the power of mind” concluded Khalid.
