Find Your Voice as an Insurance Agent
by Brent Kelly
How can you stand out among the hundreds of thousands of agents? The answer begins with your inner voice, the one you speak to yourself.
“If you talk about what you believe, you will attract those who believe what you believe.” Simon Sinek.
Recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are 374,700 active insurance agents in the U.S. alone.
How can you as an agent find a way to stand out in the highly competitive arena?
When I say finding your voice, I don’t necessarily mean your tone quality, pacing or vocabulary.
I’m talking about the language you speak to yourself, BEFORE you speak it to the world.
It begins with your inner voice.
How do you speak? Not just the words, but the voice you project.
Your voice is a statement and picture of your character, your poise and your persona. It is a statement of belief, confidence and personal power.
So how do you make your voice authentically yours?
- When you do what you believe in
- When you do what you are passionate about
- When you work in your chosen field
- When you find your calling
- When you discover something you were born to do
The Myth of Chasing Success
I love talking with motivated insurance producers. They have big goals and dreams and work with fearless energy.
I often hear about chasing success.
As the late great Jim Rohn stated, “Success is not to be pursued, it is to be attracted by the person you become.”
The point is that chasing or pursuing success is a daunting task. Where do you even start?
It starts with becoming a better you and with your passion for personal growth.
When you grow personally by working on your skills and development, you will attract others by finding your unique voice.
As your belief system, confidence and passion develop, so does your internal and external voice.
If you want to stand out and be noticed in among the crowd of 374,700 other insurance agents, start by looking within.
