(Minghui.org) I work as a salesperson for an export company. The company is not a manufacturer. All products are purchased from suppliers and sold to customers outside China. 

My cousin owns a factory and can produce the products we need. He asked me to introduce him to someone in our company. It so happened that the company was looking for suppliers, so I introduced him to our buyer. 

My cousin found out that he only made a few cents by selling a product to our company, while the company made a few yuan by just repackaging it before sale. He became envious and greedy. He said to me, “Why don’t we work together to contact the customers and make the sales ourselves?” I refused and said: “That is no good. I won’t get involved in this. I have my principles. As an employee of the company, I will not do things that are against the company’s interests.” 

Because I have connections with foreign customers, my cousin tried to persuade me to work with him countless times. My sister and brother-in-law also tried to get me to agree so that they could make more money. I deeply felt the difficulty of living in this deteriorated world. 

I reminded myself of Master’s Fa

“...Dafa, the solution for a troubled world, Puts a stop to its downward slide.” (“Illuminating all,” Hong Yin II)

Was I not agreeing to his request because the company treated me particularly well? No. It was the opposite. Other than myself, all employees of the company were the boss’s relatives. I was treated as an outsider. The boss wanted me to make more money for her, but on the other hand she had reservations about me all the time. 

Every letter I send to a customer must be copied to her; she cut the percentage of my commission when the number of customers I dealt with grew, and I made more money. She took over my large accounts and gave them to her relatives; and she let her relatives look into my emails, without my permission, so they could learn how I communicated with customers. When the company first started, I showed them a good way to exhibit the products. Eventually, I was pushed out, and she let her relative take over after becoming familiar with my technique. 

My cousin and I have grown up together since we were children. His mother did me a favor when I was young. I am not rich. I have elderly parents and children to take care of. I cannot afford a house in the center of the city. In my profession, many salespeople steal customers from their previous employers, and soon are able to buy houses or cars in the big cities.

Then how am I able to not be affected by how I am treated by my boss? It is because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. I follow Master Li’s [the founder of Falun Dafa] requirements, pay little attention to fame and self-interest, and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Forbearance-Compassion, as I want to be a good person. I always think about others first. The boss treats me badly, but the company needs to invest a lot to develop a new customer. I cannot do things that benefit myself if they hurt others. Master taught me how to be a good person. I cannot do things that ordinary people do. I can only follow Dafa’s requirement, and think about others in everything I do.

When I tell people the facts about Dafa, they often ask me, “Why do you believe in Falun Dafa, although you are so young?” I usually reply proudly: “This is my blessing. Now the morals of society have become corrupt. All people want is to make money. No one talks about morals and righteousness anymore. I follow Falun Dafa’s requirements and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Everyone in my family is kind and healthy. Our income is increasing, and life is getting better. My husband and I have experienced ordeals, but we overcame them with Master’s protection. I did not pay a cent to Master Li, while he has given me everything. So why should I not believe in Dafa?”

People often nod in agreement and respect when I explain all this to them.
