"ALMOST RICH" by D. M. Larson
PETEOne more sale... One last sale... The sale that will make me rich... The sale of a lifetime. They say I can sell anything. I believed them... You'd be amazed what I get away with.
It almost made me rich... Almost ... I am so close I can taste it. That's how you do it. You picture what you want and then you make it real. No matter what it takes. You do anything and everything to make it happen. You have to sell yourself on it first. You have to make this goal your life. Nothing else matters except this... Right now. That's the only way to do it. Let it all go. Nothing else is really important. Everything else just gets in the way. Don't let anyone distract... Not anyone. If someone doesn't help you get to your goal then they're useless. Surround yourself only with people who can help you and when they're no longer useful, cut them loose. You don't need the baggage. Baggage only weighs you down. You have to be free. Free to achieve that dream ...even if it means you do it all alone. Waiting... (Looks at watch) Waiting.... Waiting forever if I have to. Waiting for that final deal.. That one last deal that makes you rich... To enjoy all alone... No sharing the glory... a victory that will be mine and mine alone.

I originally wrote this for my Book of James project based on the quote 1:11 "For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business."
But it fit nicely with the character of the boss in the stage play script Death of an Insurance Salesman ( 978-1518665547) so will be used in that project first.
