GET A LIFE !
Before you Leave.
"True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less."
- C.S.Lewis,Mere Christianity
Hopefully, you have enjoyed my recent articles for insurance. I apologize for not having them in the magazine for the last two issues. I was out of town and traveling to receive an award that was humbling and was extremely unexpected. Being a finalist in Selling Benefit magazine for May for Broker of the year award in 2015. To be the first in the state of Georgia for this national honor, was remarkable as I retired in 2002 and had assumed that my business career after 29 years was over. I believe God had something else in mind. I came back to my birth state in 2009. Georgia was definitely on my mind after I had left in 1975 after graduating from West Georgia College.
Obedience to our, Lord can sometimes be hard to understand. This past Sunday my pastor, Dr. Kevin Williams gave the best explanation that when we feel the Lord calling we need to answer. It was a wonderful expository and an impactful message. As an insurance professional building, a practice takes time and patience. It also takes a calling. My past business career was marketing companies and products. Products that you can feel, touch and even smell. Insurance in my humble opinion should not be sold. It should not be a slick sales job or a slick selling pitch.I believe you sell clothes, cars, gadgets, houses and all the stuff we desire in status symbol land.Insurance especially insurance for humans has no sex appeal, nor status symbol significance.Take life insurance, it's never going to do anything for the insured. Nada, nothing, zilch, so here's what I say to clients "is there anything or anybody you Love?" If the answer is NO, then don't bother to call an insurance professional. On the flip side offering insurance solutions especially medical and health plans can be very rewarding to the agent and the individual or family. I have seen as a certified PPACA agent, I have gotten a lot of joy from seeing families getting health coverage for the first time in their lives. Hard to believe that we have people in the USA, that have never had a physician.Many of these people had to submit to be humbled and receive a subsidy for them and the family to have affordable health care.It takes obedience to submit to need help and receive help. If you are part of the 80% who still have not sought health care coverage then please act on obedience to help you and your family this year during the November, enrollment period.
