One of the amazing traits I see in common among all the agents in National Agents Alliance is their strong desire to better themselves. They come here because they need some extra money to pay their bills, or because they are sick of working in an environment where they are not appreciated and where they will never be allowed to fulfill their potential, or because they just need an opportunity. NAA opens their eyes to a brighter future and to a chance to fulfill their desires.
But what is the factor that propels some of our agents to great success? Is it some innate skill set or good luck? Is it previous experience or personality? The answer to those questions is… none of these. Agents who come into this company and succeed are those people who understand that success is inside of them. They know they are fully responsible for every outcome in their business so they are the ones who go to work on the one thing. And what is that one thing? It is themself.
You begin this journey by getting your insurance license, but that is only the first step. Take one hour a day and change your life. All the information that one needs to be successful is available. Commit to one hour a day for 365 days to better yourself. Go through NAA University. Read Andy Albright’s 8 Steps to Success and Millionaire Maker Manual. Ask your agency manager and shop the NAA store for all the books and recordings that you need to become a superstar in this company. One of the hallmarks of the most successful people is their willingness to share, and there are countless books and recordings where people have explained their success step by step.
One of the favorites is “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. This classic book was written almost one hundred years ago, and has been inspiring and motivating people since. Learn what a “definite major purpose” is and what a “master mind” can do, and apply these principles to your business.
Too many people use the excuse of time, but time is not an excuse, it is the reason. How will you ever have more free time if you don’t improve on what you are doing? Turn off the TV…in fact, be bold and cut off your cable/dish service until you reach a particular income goal. Use your car as a classroom on wheels – While you’re driving to appointments, listen to audio-books. The best time to do your reading is to wake up a little earlier in the morning and start your day off with some inspiration and education.
National Agents Alliance has laid out a road map for each of us but only we can walk it. The average person in the United States spends thousands of hours a year in front of a television set. If you want to change your life, you have to change yourself. One hour a day will bring magic into your life.
