Sitting here and typing this while trying to resist the negative thoughts that pouring in are not the things I do lightly. I am passed over being underestimated, and I do believe whatever don’t kill me only makes me stronger.
Obviously, it sounds easier than what it really is. But for the past 6 months I have learned a lot, and I always have mixed feelings whenever it comes down to what I do for catching my dreams.
Up to date I still don’t get it, why the one profession out of 5 being the highest paid job in the world is considered embarrassment and a low-down by most people in this country. But mindsets are indeed not easy to change.
A man who works as a recreation clerk used to be nice and friendly with me. One day we met up for coffee during which I presented about how to plan a financial protection for his small family. While the conversation was smooth, text messages are gone un-responded afterwards. The next time we met again, there was a distant put up against me as if I would take out a gun and shoot him in the face if he refused to take my recommendation for a protection plan.
A woman I admired so much, even tried to insert some insults in her words when we met for a presentation sometimes ago. As if I came with filthy heart trying to deceive her.
Yes, it is disappointing when a friendship gets sour just because one is trying to offer a help to the other by presenting information about how to plan and carry a life insurance the right way.
But beyond that there are also enlightening moments, like when the happiness that runs through my blood is felt so real and thrills me to my bone when my clients got their application for protection granted by my insurance company. Or a client’s worrisome that I could truly feel when her application got rejected due to her medical condition.
In this field, I have a long road to go. But I believe that my strong determination will pay off eventually. Today is the day to start over. This is the first day of the 365 days of 2016. I am going to make it happen.
So my first gratitude to begin the 365 days of catching dream project is for all my clients that have given me their trust and faith that I can be of any assistance to them in carrying future protection for their life and family. For them I stand still and for them, and many more to come, I raise my dignity high.
Dear clients, thank you for everything.
