What Motivates You?

To be successful in insurance, or in any other business, it’s important that you stay motivated when you hit a rough patch. Often, especially when you’re behind on your goals, carrot and stick motivators aren’t enough to keep you going without a struggle. Your purpose has to go beyond just making your numbers in order for you to stay driven throughout the year. As we hit the mid –year mark, it’s easy to get caught up in “how” to be more successful moving forward, but we often forget to keep our “Why” in mind.

We’ve talked about the importance of your agency’s “Why”—if you know it, and you believe it, you’ll be able to convey it to prospects. But, your own “Why” is just as important to keep in mind.

So, what motivates you? Do you strive to:

- Protect your clients’ businesses beyond the placement of policies;
- Facilitate better care for injured workers;
- Create opportunities for your clients to see better outcomes;
- Create greater opportunities for your family;
- Contribute at a higher level to a cause that is meaningful to you?

If you find your purpose, you’ll actively seek learning and growth opportunities, and you’ll inspire those around you to find their own intrinsic motivation. And, don’t be afraid to think big.

“Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
