By the way, I used to be a life insurance agent.
It lasted for 6 months.
That was 15 years ago.
(Whoa. You never knew that. )
I was doing very well there. I made 30 sales in 90 days.
It looked like I was flying high. I was gonna be a rockstar.
When I use my energy, I certainly could do it.
So why did I give it up?
Simple: I was not #happy.
I loved the training part.
But I was fighting with myself at every step.
I couldn’t bring myself to make the calls.
I remember vividly sitting in my office in #Brooklyn on Broadway, looking at the phone literally in terror.
The phone was like an 800-pound #gorilla staring me in the face.
When I finally dialed, but nobody picked up the call, I was literally sighing in relief.
(First I was praying that they should answer, then I thanked God that no one answered the call!)
When I had to make a presentation to a client, I felt like a piece of garbage. A beggar begging for business.
I was fighting with myself.
That’s why I left.
My friends, this is not a way to live!
This is not the way to succeed in any field.
Hindsight is #2020.
If you love what you do, your work will be like a piece of cake!
