This message may seem cliche, but it can also be the secret sauce behind true insurance success.
When it comes to anything and everything, those 2 simple words can be easy to say but difficult to do.
Don’t quit, end of the story.
There are thousands of self-help books and books written on success that flood bookstores and the internet. Not one of them needs to be longer than 2 words.
Those who show up every day, grind it out and get 1% better always find what they are looking for in the end. Those who want things fast quit early and then blame external factors or outside forces other than themselves for their failures.
Nothing about slow and steady, continuous improvement is exciting, and therefore it doesn’t sell. But the truth of the matter is that those 2 words need to stay with you.
Those people who have built long-term, lasting insurance success refuse to quit, especially when everything and everyone tells them that they should.
The best advice I can give you is to stay stubborn and don’t quit.
Another thing I want to mention is the word “breakthrough” and how that is a myth.
It seems like everyone is waiting to wake up one morning and have everything magically figured out, like a true breakthrough.
But it doesn’t work that way. If you put your head down, grind it out, and keep putting in the work, one day, somebody will ask you how you became such a success.
This may take you back a little bit because you’re not expecting it and may even question yourself, “am I a success?”
Because until that moment, you never actually stepped back and looked around to realize you really were getting pretty successful.
You didn’t realize it because you were too busy doing the work.
Remember that there will be moments where you’re going to question why you are doing the things you are doing, you will fail or be rejected, and you will want to quit. Hear those 2 words during those moments.
You are closer than you realize, and the only thing that will stop you from getting there is quitting, so don’t do it.
You’ve got this. Believe in yourself.
