(Minghui.org) A few years ago, my company decided to dismiss all the employees and then re-establish a new company. Soon after the new company was launched, I was promoted from department head to the head of the company. This was challenging for me because I had no experience in managing an entire company. However, I used the wisdom I cultivated in Falun Dafa to lead by example instead of preaching.

In the beginning, the work assignments I gave my subordinates did not go smoothly. They either did not cooperate or made a lot of excuses. I tried to inspire their kind thoughts and told them that their work was not just for the company or themselves, but for their families. I pointed out that how they fulfilled their jobs was being responsible to themselves, their families, the company, and society. If one does not have a stable source of income, it would be difficult to raise one’s children or to support one’s family and elderly parents.

When there were conflicts, the employees involved spread hearsay and formed cliques. Reminding them that we were all adults, I asked them to pay attention to cultivating their moral character and not gossip behind others’ backs. I asked them to cherish their relationships with each other—that we should understand and tolerate each other, cooperate, and do our work well.

I recruited a new employee. When he worked in another company, the head routinely directed some business to himself and pocketed the income. One day this employee received some business and immediately gave it to me. I immediately handed over the income to the company. At first, he thought I was pretending. When he later discovered that I always did this, he respected me very much.

I also submitted purchase rebates for the company. I honesty deposited the rebates into the company’s account. For example, when I went to the mall to buy items, the mall always gave gifts and sometimes even returned the cash to me. I just deposited the cash into the company’s account. Placing the gift items together with the merchandise is equivalent to lowering the purchase price for the company.

In another example, I drove a company car to work. When the company car was undergoing maintenance or needed to be repaired, I drove my own car to work. My wife said, “It's okay to drive our own car, but can your company pay for the gas?” After using my car for a few days, I told my wife, “The gas tank is full.” She asked me with a smile, “Did you refill it with our own money?” I also smiled and said, “Whoever paid, the tank is full.”

My wife often said, “People always take company things home, but you always take things from our home to the company.” It was true. When the company’s electric kettle was broken, I took a spare one from home and placed it in the company’s breakroom.

When my wife bought daily necessities, I asked her to buy extra garbage bags, paper towels, paper cups, etc. I took some to work. I even brought a chair from home. When the employees saw this, they all said I was generous and selfless.

I often go out to make purchases for the company and need relatively large funds. In the past, others borrowed the working capital from the company and never used their own money. I always use my own money to make the purchase and then get reimbursed later.

Due to the recent market downturn, the company had to lay off staff in order to save costs. Now, I am a manager, the approver, and the company’s financial officer. I do not have any supervision, and everything I do is guided by my conscience. In this situation, it would be difficult for most people to resist temptation.

For many years, I never made a mistake in this regard. In my opinion, these interests are too trivial to tempt Dafa practitioners because we practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The first thing we practice is being truthful.

Under my leadership, the company reversed its losses and became profitable. The owner and all the employees praised me.

Thank you, Master, for teaching me Falun Dafa so that I know how to be truly honest and selfless. Through my behavior, I hope people will see the beauty of Falun Dafa. I hope that every person I interact with will say, “Falun Dafa is good!”


Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first taught to the public in 1992. Nearly 100 million people across China were soon practicing after experiencing improvements in their health and character. Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline's growing popularity as a threat to the CCP's atheistic ideology and issued an order to ban Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999.

Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners in the persecution over the past 22 years; the actual number is suspected to be much higher. More have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.

There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply China’s organ transplant industry.

Under Jiang's personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
