the sale

Even back in those days, people tried
to sell you stuff you didn't need or want -

Obstacles are necessary for success,
because selling,
as in all careers of importance,
victory only comes,
after many struggles,
and countless defeats -

What a shame that the world adopted selling as its raison de etre!

If it had championed 'GIVING', how different the world would be.

David - Howdy - and yes, you'd think with all the Worlds religions talking about it, people would not be suffering so, yet,
here we are ; (
Hope all is well in your part of the World = Cheers!

That was my life sales, was what I did best. But now that I look back. My joy was in all the people I helped. Not sales made. I sold houses. And had my own pet store. So my jobs were more like match making. :)

I like it - and it seems this country has been big on getting a job, no matter what, to the detriment of most folks ; (
