Business people have taken their advertising a notch higher. It seems that every business you walk past is just screaming about discounts while conveniently not revealing the original price(s) of the products. The impulse buyers are in serious trouble because it’s during a time like this, that you find yourself enticed to purchase things that you don’t need. These voices are usually so loud and ignoring them is usually very difficult.

This also applies in our day to day activities most of which take place at school, work, in our social circles or even our religious gatherings. There are usually some very loud voices who are calling and trying to entice us to do things that we know deep inside, are wrong. It might be cheating in exams, paying people to do projects for us, engaging in corrupt deals to get something done or service offered, lying to our spouse, and so the list goes on …

These voices are usually very loud and it takes  a lot of courage and determination to silence them. I know this is a tough call as many of us are trying to fit in with our peers and alienating oneself from them and the things they do, may not be that easy. However, we have to decide between fitting in to a group and preparing for our future. We have to learn to tune out of the negative frequency and learn to tune in to the positive frequency. These negative things though attractive, can be very dangerous. So as we conclude the year and prepare to usher in a new one, let us practice the art of shutting out the loud but unnecessary voices and focus on what is important to our future and the good of society.
