Practice prudence and excel in life.

“Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.” – William Shakespeare
When times get rough, it’s easy for people to give up what they’re working towards and revert back to safe territory – what they’re used to, the feeling of security, etc. Taking a leap and moving forward into the unfamiliar is frightening for many people, but what makes a person successful is their prudence and ability to resist taking the easy route. In order to get anything done, you have to work hard and make sacrifices. There is a difference in those who work towards a short-term goal at the expense of fulfilling a long-term goal and people who take the time to go through the process of working towards that ultimate goal, and that is their prudence.

Prudence can be assessed in various situations: losing weight, substance abuse recovery, obtaining a degree and many other life goals. The way a person’s goals are handled is an indicator of how prudent one can be. Let’s say you’d like to lose weight. Weight loss is definitely a process that cannot be done quickly. Some do not like exercise so they eat significantly less. Some love food too much so they wear themselves out with exercise. Either way, extremes are no way to reach a weight loss goal safely. It takes time, discipline and precaution. To lose weight the right way, a prudent person would think carefully about proceeding the healthy way. An example would be to visit a doctor first and get themselves on the right diet and exercise plan and progress from there.

Prudent people want the best in everything and will consciously figure out a way to get what they want. They will think about things, assess situations and make a choice of benefit – and it will benefit them in the long-run and not just temporarily. Committing to the intellectually and morally right thing to do may initially be inconveniencing because it may involve sacrifice, but good things come to those who work hard for it and the end result will be worth it.
