Your Characters' Decisions and the Consequences

Frances G. Wickes in her "The Inner World of Choice", talks about the moment of choice and how one can conquer fear and go forth with the change or not. She says:

"If at that moment the ego turns back because of fear, if it dwells in hate, if it refuses decision because of weakness, the dark hour is not the 'living midnight' but a dead midnight out of which dead day comes. The 'new' day has died in the womb of night."

Well said and and an idea for plot. Do you have a character that could be too afraid to choose a change and you could show the devastating result? Frances does a good job in sparking character development based on her stories from real life. Great book, out of print, but available used.
