The Positive Impact of Being an Honest Salesperson
(Minghui.org) After I was fired from my job as a public official because I practice Falun Gong, I went to work in sales.
No matter how challenging it’s been, I’ve followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and worked hard. I know that I’m not here just to work, but also to meet predestined people. It’s been almost a year now, and my performance has been recognized. Our clients trust and support me, and the difficult projects now seem easy.
Nowadays many companies promise you the “lowest prices” and “best deals.” In many cases, however, that is far from the truth. A client of mine from another city trusted me to purchase products worth 600,000 yuan. I charged the normal service fee and closed the deal. Soon after that, he asked me to purchase another product for him and told me that he would be fine with a certain price.
I negotiated with the seller, who agreed to a price 18,000 yuan less than what my client had suggested. I let my client know and he signed the contract, very pleased with the outcome. My co-worker said I didn’t have to tell my client the actual price and could have made some decent money out of the deal. I said I was honest with my clients, which was why they trusted me. Even if a client is wealthy, I still should not take advantage of him or her.
In this profession, everything is driven by sales volume. I realized that, as long as I position my heart righteously, I will get what I deserve. I also shared with my coworkers that everybody will get what they are supposed to get, that there is no need for envy.
When I became the top salesperson in my company, my coworkers said, “We should learn from her. To do well in this business, one has to first be a good person!” Because the company recognized my ability and my coworkers trusted me, it was easy to clarify the truth to them. They often asked me to tell them more. When some of them encountered difficulties or frustrations, I told them to recite “Falun Dafa is good,” and they did.
A young girl at work was very sympathetic after hearing what my husband and I endured due to the persecution of Falun Gong. She recognized the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and agreed to withdraw from the Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
Another coworker lost her husband when she was young and raised her daughter on her own. I shared with her the wonderfulness of Dafa and lent her a copy of Zhuan Falun. The informational materials helped correct her misunderstandings about Dafa. She witnessed the inner strength of a Dafa practitioner while working with me. After she withdrew from the CCP, she started to watch the videos of Master’s lectures. She also reminded others to recite “Falun Dafa is good.”
Within less than a year, I have clarified the truth about Dafa to a majority of my coworkers, giving them the facts about the persecution initiated by Jiang Zemin. They have seen how wonderful Dafa is by observing me, and I’ve told them that I treasure our predestined relationship.
