Insurance agents, this is your help website.
Each topic page on our website is a mini training experience.
If you want to make money selling insurance, you need to overcome
the biggest single factor that stops people from becoming successful in
life and moving on to bigger and better opportunities. It is the fear
of failure. I call it the FEAR FACTOR.
Do any of these sound familiar?
you must learn to control the fear factor, as it is by far the biggest stumbling block, stopping agents from becoming really successful.
I once read that people who have come up with fantastic ideas were only stopped by the fear of success.
Explain that to me!
Let’s say you decided to start a widget company. However as you sat there and thought about it, you could see that this concept or product could really get big. You then start thinking “How do I deal with bankers, shippers, marketing, and the time that will be needed to do all these things.” Where do I really start? Wow. That is too much for me handle. (FEAR FACTOR SETS IN) End of that success story.
I have seen this fear factor surface when my agents sat down to make cold calls on the phone. They became reluctant. Why? Because they did not want to get a big fat no, and be rejected.
What new agents need to be clear on, is the fact that people are not rejecting you when they do not give you an interview. They are rejecting the situation.
Think about it. People call us all the time and we look for reasons to say no, I am not interested.
That is why you need to be very confident on the phone and in your interviews if you want to make money selling insurance.
Knowledge breeds success and confidence.

Another key factor in controlling ones fears, is behavior management. Doing the things successful people do, requires control of your behavior patterns. Many times we end up taking the path of least resistance.
Forming good positive habits removes a lot of the problems we have in selling insurance, or in life.
