The law of cause and effect governs the world. Nothing escapes its reach, no one can circumvent its application. What you do today determines the level of tomorrow's pay. In addition to economic advantages, frugality also brings psychological benefits. Stress, anxiety, discouragement, and fear will not haunt the house of the austere.
Discarding waste and embracing frugality lead to
peace of mind. Worries won't keep awake at night those who live with
measure. Leading a rational life spares man the effort of following the
latest fashion. When we dismiss artificial alternatives, we are left
with the fundamental. Serenity is the result of simplification.
frugality instead of waste will allow you to make fast and consistent
decisions. When you trust your own judgement more than external opinion,
you learn from mistakes and develop your skills. Frugality, which is
based on stable values, leads to decisiveness. A man who possesses clear
priorities can reject inconsistency without need of long discussions.
No short-sighted decisions
prudent conduct brings the added benefit of risk reduction. A judicious
man protects himself when at risk and tries to avert threats whenever
possible. The tension of complex choices can wear out even the most
balanced mind. On the other hand, a straightforward and consistent
approach reduces errors of oversight. Shunning unnecessary cost keeps
risk exposure low.
Ignore the noise
Ignoring the noise of false
opinions liberates resources. Frugality enables man to breathe free of
encumbrances and focus his efforts on what really counts. Happiness is
not the result of accumulating tasks, but of a few essential activities
that make a difference.
Discarding waste brings man wealth, but
the material advantages of frugality go hand in hand with its
psychological benefits. Disregard the unnecessary and pay attention to
the crucial elements of a good life. Realizing that most things possess
little relevance is what enables man to make wise choices.
