Stuck in a rut!

I really didn't love what i was doing


But i was stuck..passion doesn't pay the bills ๐Ÿงพ


Insurance sales wasn't my first choice, but with three kids and a mortgage to pay


Sacrifices had to be made


I enjoyed it for a little bit I suppose..learning something new, analyzing data, helping people


But the honeymoon wore off pretty quickly


I remember one month we were having a sales contest ๐Ÿ†


A standard one in the insurance business


Whoever quotes the most policies gets tickets to an NBA game ๐Ÿ€


Of course i was in on that one, being a big sports fan


But as i was out selling i noticed that i was adding policies as recommendations, even though it wasn't necessarily in the best interest of the folx i was talking to.


I could justify it in my mind ๐Ÿง 


its just a quote

its just a little policy

it's just a few dollars extra a month


deep down in my heart though, I didn't feel good about it๐Ÿ˜ž


And there were other things of course that I didn't enjoy:


The buttoned up look

The calling prospects at all hours

The travel around town from meeting to meeting


Doing what I had to do to provide, to survive


In the end:


๐Ÿ”ด I was tired

๐Ÿ”ด I was wore down

๐Ÿ”ด I felt stuck in a rut


It spilled out into my life


Into my relationships with my wife, my kids, my friends and most importantly...me


If this is a familiar story for you, let's chat!


Comment below๐Ÿ‘‡ on how you can tell you are in a rut and what you do to get unstuck.
