There are those that can accept the inevitable and others that can't as in the case of a wealthy eighty-five year old banker by the name of Bill Johnstone. First, we'll look back on his life when he was being molded into a success making machine. Bill was always early to work and never called out sick unless it was a life or death situation. Bill loved making money and lots of it due to the fact that he was brought up in a poor environment. Bill excelled in everything he tried, be it school, sports and sales. In high school he was a straight "A" student and the class president. He was also the star quarterback of his high school team, but when Bill got his first job as an insurance salesman after graduating high school he knew he found his calling. Bill was offered scholarships to major universities for his outstanding athletics as a quarterback that he ultimately turned down because of his new job as an insurance salesman.
After settling into his new job things were going really well for him. He won many awards year after year for about five years then things started slowing down and he was no longer the top salesman of the company. Bill got a little too comfortable always being at the top and started losing focus and that's when other agents took it to their advantage and started out selling Bill. This really frustrated him not being at the top anymore and not tending to his client's needs like he had always done before. His clients started dropping their policies, and going with other agents at the office behind his back, and before he had a chance to react he was called into his boss's office and let go. Bill said to his boss "That's not fair, I have worked harder than anyone else in this office, and been on top longer than anyone else, and now this is the thanks I get!"
"Bill, I'm sorry, but this is business and you know you have quotas to meet, and if you're not meeting those numbers, well you know what I mean." Please understand you've been valuable to the company for many years but I have to have dependable agents that can keep getting those numbers for the company. I don't like this anymore than you do," explained his boss.
Bill rose up from his seat and said "Well, I'm sorry too!" He shook his boss's hand and went to his office and started cleaning out his desk. Other agents came by and asked him what was going on and Bill said "I was let go and wasn't even given a chance to redeem myself. My advice to you my friend don't lose focus and you will be alright." Bill carried his stuff out of his office and as he walked by everyone they just stared him down and whispered among themselves. Bill felt like his whole world was crumbling down but he just held his head high in the air, and just ignored them all, and exited the building to his car never looking back.
At this point in his life he knew he wasn't the young go getter he used to be but he still had some drive left in him and wasn't about to throw in the towel yet. So, after careful thought he decided after all the hard work of being the top salesman and having it all come tumbling down and not being able to have a second chance. Being his own boss was something he wanted to entertain and after a few days of sleeping on it he came up with being the president of a bank.
One thing Bill was smart about doing was he put a lot of money away and was ready to put it all in starting a new business. With his money and a small loan from the bank his dream would soon become a reality. After his bank was built he decided to call it BJS Bank and immediately start hiring all the employees needed to get the bank off the ground. Bill was able to successfully hire the employees needed but one and that was a vice president. He did have a close friend by the name of Dave Mason that had recently lost his job and since Bill knew him very well, he knew he would be a perfect fit with his education and background. When Bill asked him if he would like to help him run his new bank Dave didn't hesitate in accepting Bill's offer.
As months went by and things were looking really good for the bank Dave got a small raise for his commitment in making sure the bank was taken care, but he felt a little cheated and thought he should have gotten more. Since that small raise was like a slap in the face things started to take a turn for the worse. Dave didn't say anything to Bill about it but resentment was starting to set in. Dave said "I'll show him a thing or two," and wasn't about to do anything until Bill went on his trip out of the country.
