Even this challenging situation would ease
In fact, it comes with experience. Sometimes people fail in their mission and sometimes are cheated and that provides the lessons learnt for future and that is how cautiousness is generated.
It is good to be cautious and it is well said that prevention is better than cure.
Those who are cautious will have lesser chances of failures.
Knowledge is power.
A person may be habituated to using abusive words in the normal course of conversation but he will take care not to say such words while speaking to his parents or elders; being cautious in such situations is basically, I feel, an instinct. Then there are areas where we become cautious due to the inherent dangers involved; like wearing a helmet or seat belt, not going into deep waters if you don't know how to swim, not touching a hot utensil with bare hands and so on are just a few examples.
Cautiousness is a characteristic that is the result of being prudent and practical as to what one should say or do. There may be exceptions and we might get to see people who do not bother much about being cautious and such people might brand those who are cautious as being afraid. But it is always better to be on the safer side and so being cautious is a positive characteristic.
'It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it'. - Aristotle.
