While it is true that hard work is the key to success, it does not always lead to favorable results from an ethical standpoint as there are numerous people around the world who have not got their due and their sincere efforts are subjected to the law of diminishing returns.
Lately, the things have gone completely out of hand with people resorting to extreme steps such as suicide when they have no hope left of making it big and with the constant taunts from parents and peers, they gradually lose all interest in life and are left with no choice.
However, they fail to understand that they have not completely run out of luck, as there are many places to turn to and the solution is to look around the problem instead of looking at the problem.
The world of insurance can be seen as a wonderful alternative when you have lost out on job and business, as there have been numerous stories of success in this relatively new field that is quite unexplored due to it being so underrated.
It does take to understand the nitty gritties of a new field and insurance is no exception, but once you get all the points down to the core, you will find that you are quite successful as providing insurance to others will no longer feel like an uphill task as it did before.

- Keep the explanation simple: When you are dealing with customers, don’t confuse them with complicated explanations and avoid the use of jargons. Just keep the conversation easy so that it will be understandable to them and speak only when they are finished with their doubts and queries. It is the first step to gain their trust and ensure that they don’t walk out on the offer.
- Apply your intelligence: Just listen to the customer carefully and do not interrupt them (customer can interrupt you) and exercise moral empathy with them by using emotional content with maturity and no melodrama as this is essential for being a good agent.
- Be Honest: Another important point is that you should never exaggerate with anything or provide false details or promises just to let them have a deal as it can be disastrous. Be truthful and tell them everything in a frank and straightforward manner.
