His will to acquire a different career lead him to being at the right place at the right time thus earning him his job as a clerk and being able to leave the old one. Although Richard did not gain a great amount of wealth he was able to accomplish his goal of finding the job he had longed for and was able to leave his past behind and become a new person making him successful.
