Lotus flower-a beauty
People will say that it's just greed that interest the wolf to trap its prey. The truth in us, we are motivated by anything that is free which is sometimes quite logical. As there is a saying “Things that come free usually there is an ulterior motive”. If there are things that are free or so easy to obtain certainly there is a catch.
Pointers to ponder;
Don’t trust people who give us gifts
Don’t trust stories that sound too good to be true.
(Sometimes it’s hard not to believe certain stories that can affect our lives, silly me)
Don’t be motivated by greed
Don’t do things just because it is easy or convenient
To grasp the above statements are easy.The most important is" Don’t be greedy"and you will not fall into this trap of “freebies”. There are many times sales persons came to my house and told me that my family has been given certain freebies or we have won a prize.( pots and pants, cookery items, electrical items, etc) But before you can receive any of the freebies you need to pay for the freight charges of the freebies which sometimes can be double the price of it. What a joke. If one’s is not careful certainly he/she will fall for this trap of techniques create by these professional sales persons.
It’s because of greed that at one time or another we will purchase things that we really don’t need. I bet it happened to everyone of us. The attraction of something free moves our heart rather than our mind making us thinking illogically. Thus we end up buying the unnecessary and hurting our budget.
My principle is: if the sales persons want to give me freebies I will surely deny it. A lesson learnt is "greed kills" or you will end up poorer. Generally there is nothing free in this world maybe except air.
On another note:
The air condition in Penang is fast improving due to the shattered showers. It has been hazy for the past week and the air condition was really bad. Phew..
