My One Hundred Dollar Piano Stool
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4 (NKJV)
This is a true account
from my own life on how the Law of Attraction works. I have wanted a piano since I was a little
girl. My father decided against the
idea. He said he had seen to many people
invest money in instruments and lessons only to see their child give up music. I did not understand the concept of being
persistent at the time, and so put the idea out of my head. Whenever I did come across a piano though, I
would always be attracted to it and start tinkering on it.
While visiting a friend
in another part of the country, I started learning to play her piano by going
through some of the lessons in her piano books. I was smitten!
When I got home, I
bought an affordable keyboard and some piano books and proceeded to teach
myself. I quickly outgrew the keyboard,
but I did not have the money for a piano, however;that did not deter me because all I
about was “I want a piano!” I started looking for a used piano in the
classified ads. What I soon came to
realize inexpensive pianos sold very quickly, nevertheless; I just kept on
looking and believing for one.
One day an important
though hit me; “I do not know how to by a good used piano, and I certainly do
not want to wind up with a piece of junk or a costly repair bill. ”I went to the library and found books on how
to buy a good used piano, and proceeded to educate myself.
One day my mother who
lived in another part of the country sent me a cheque for one hundred dollars
and told me to buy a treat for the whole family. A little while later I found two pianos
advertised for sale in the local paper; one for five hundred dollars and another one
for one hundred dollars. I checked out
the respectively priced five-hundred dollar one first and found it needed a
fair amount of repair. I then called the
number advertising the one-hundred-dollar piano and got through on the first
try, and yes it was still available, and yes, I could come to see it right
When I arrived at the house, I
found out that the people selling the piano were going on a year long trip
around the world, and the people to whom they were renting their house had
their own piano. The piano was simply
priced low to sell quickly. The amazing
part was that I was the only one to get through on the telephone to enquire
about the piano because they were selling and giving away so many other items
that their phone was ringing off the hook!
Once in the house in
put my new-found skills on how to buy a good used piano to work. As I was doing my inspection the man selling
the piano got a little nervous and told my husband that he would let the piano
go for seventy-five dollars. This is
kind of funny because if you knew my husband, he loves to haggle, but he just
said, “One hundred is fine.”
After I decided to buy
the piano, calls started coming in for it. This piano definitely had my name on it and
it was in remarkable shape!
I tell people I bought
a piano stool for one hundred dollars and they threw in the piano for
free! Our mechanic came to help move the
piano. Being a relatively light studio
size model, the piano got a nice ride on its back in a pickup truck. The price:ten dollars!
I owned that piano for
eight years and did not put a penny into it. It just stayed in tune while I spent hours and hours playing it. When I finally decided to sell my piano because
my family I and were moving across the country from Alberta
to Ontario to
spent time with my aging mother, I received seven hundred and fifty dollars for
it. The buyer was a concert pianist who
wanted a piano for his students. He
graced us with several performances in our living room and the music was
wonderful. He said the piano was only
slightly out of tune and in very good
