Born For This

Carko has launched his own mechanical engineering start up company but he’s struggling to sign on potential corporate clients with what he’s manufactured.

Carko:  You don’t understand Trish, I’m obsessed.  I’m completely obsessed.  When I’m fixated on something, that’s it, I can’t get my mind off it.  It’s all I think about.  It drives me crazy because it overtakes me and I need to do something about it.  Constantly.

If I’m not out there doing what I’ve been born to do, than I’m dying.  You might as well take me out into the woods and put a bullet in my head.  I’d be no good to you or anybody else.

Don’t you see this is me.  This is all I am.  It’s why I exist, why I breathe.

If you love me you will support me.  You will support this insanity I talk about and it’s a good thing, it’s a good thing Trish because if it works, if it all works baby, I’m telling you now, I’m giving you everything you ever dreamed.

I need you in my corner.  Have faith.  Give me some time and let me show you and prove that I have what it takes to succeed.

I don’t want an average life.  An average life scares me.  I imagine big things, great things for us and I know I can do it.

Just stay by my side, that’s all I ask.  Stay with me on this the whole way through and I will show you how things get done.

Will you believe in me?
