Cultivate These Habits For Success At Insurance Jobs
Want to succeed in your insurance jobs? Of course you do. But just how you go about the job can have a profound impact on your level of success.
There are some habits you can develop that can at least put you on the road to success in any of the insurance jobs you may pursue during your career. Here are a few:
Be a problem solver
If you can habitually approach problems with solutions, you’re on your way to success not just in insurance, but just about any field.
As self-help guru Tony Robbins has said, “Every problem is a gift. Without them we wouldn’t grow.”
Associate with successful insurance agents
If you want to be successful in your insurance jobs, it helps to surround yourself with successful people.
“We become better basketball players by associating with better basketball players- we become better insurance agents by associating with better insurance agents. There is something to be said about being in the same room with people that are of the same age, same industry and are all driven to succeed – it WILL rub off on you,” writes Boyd McGehee, president of Talladega Insurance Agency.
Bring passion to your work
Your client will figure it out if you don’t have any passion for what you’re doing. Conversely, if you can communicate passion, you will excite and invite clients and fellow workers to succeed with you.
Oprah Winfrey has said, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
Cultivate your curiosity and love of learning
Nothing in life is static, and that includes the insurance industry. The field is changing all the time, and the most successful agents know this and see it as a positive. They have a zest for learning about the industry, their clients, and how best to serve their clients.
“The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not to live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity,” Josh Waitzkin, chess player, author and martial artist, said.
