How Energy Works
Henry Carner visited me at Scandia Health Food Store in Carpinteria, California.
“What’s not selling?” he asked.
“See that bottle of hand lotion? It’s been sitting on the shelf since I’ve been here, and I’ve been here for more than three years now.”
“OK,” Henry replied, taking the bottle off the shelf and handing it to me. “Take it in your hands and put your energy into it.”
“Is your energy in it?”
“Put it back on the shelf and let’s see what happens.”
The very next customer picked it off the shelf and bought it.
Since then I’ve learned to put my energy into more momentous things than a crappy old bottle of shampoo! :)
Jin Chung owned Scandia, and I managed it.
He drove up from Los Angeles to pick up the bills once a month. Otherwise, Scandia was a one-man show.
One time, he picked up a large bottle of vitamins, and complained, “Why did you order this? It costs $50.00. Who’s going to pay that much for a bottle of vitamins?”
No sooner did he put the bottle back on the shelf than a very large man (about six-foot-eight or so) walked into the store, picked that very same bottle off the shelf, and bought it.
