12. 鼓励和帮助你实现目标的人

Off the top of my head, the first person who has helped me achieve a goal is my co-worker Lisa70. I know her because of a part-time job I had during last summer vacation, where my job responsibility was mainly selling portable power banks71. Lisa was our team leader and I really liked working with her.

Anyway, the first day on the job was a real chore72. I still remember our boss asked us to reach the sales target73 on time. However, after I worked for a whole morning, I felt like I was out of my depth74 because there were barely75 any customers in the store. When I was worried sick about76 failing to meet the target, Lisa came up to77 me and encouraged me to not give up. She suggested that I go out and find deals instead of just waiting in the shop, and she even kindly took the time to teach me some sales tricks78 when I attended to79 my first customer.

Thanks to Lisa, I managed to achieve the goal that day. At the end of the day, Lisa had a conversation with me. She told me about the difficulties of becoming a salesperson, and encouraged me to keep at it80 no matter how hard it seemed. She saw that I was dedicated81 and passionate about sales and wanted to help me as best she could82. I was very grateful to Lisa for helping me step up my game83 when it came to sales. I honestly couldn’t have survived my first day without her.
