I'm sure that the definition of success varies from person to person. For some people it's the paycheck, whereas the sheer pleasure of helping people in need may define success to others.

I'd love to hear from the other members as well about their ideas about success.

It really depends on the person on how he or she consider success. But for me, success in life insurance is when you help other people by providing a product that can give financial protection and eventually lets you earn more commissions.

Honest life insurance selling = money. That is success for me.

Combination of everything. I want to go to bed at night knowing I did the right thing for my customer. When I get a call from someone who said they were referred by a current customer, I know I am a success. When I review my reports and see my ytd premium and has it has increased, I can see I am successful. Money of course doesn't hurt.

As long as I do thing ethically and morally, I figure everything else will fall into place, and I will be successful.

What is your definition?

For me it's the freedom of being self-employed.

You are truly not free in this country if you are an indentured servant to the ever relentless corporate structure.

Of course the main reason self-employed persons are self-employed is because they can't work for anyone one else! Razz

Over 50% of new insurance agents do not make it 18 months. So if you are able to pay your bills after 18 months and not looking for another job. Then that is success.

This is the only job for me and I would not trade it for the world.

internet dating is Ruining Us

Perhaps I didn answer today. I do think online dating service personals is changing us for the worse. Someone mentioned that media has led us to believe that we were smooth charmdatescamreviews.wordpress.com bros caught where it was mostly awkwardness. I don fight that. Neither do I dispute that online dating is just another tool that we have to meet people who want to us.precisely what does concern me, Is that online dating gives women a false picture of their dating value, And thereby skews our education on standards. Women get so many likes and matches that it tells them they in higher demand than they are really. Men will sleep with women that are below their marital standards, Arguably which is crucial to the average woman than who will sleep with them. I bet if we could capture the information, women who are average or above average in value will only match + meet men who are above average in value. due to the fact cohorts age, The dating pool will thin and women who previously had standards like all of those other online dating women will run into a problem that is they will feel like they settling when they are mostly coupling with same value people.moreover, Thanks to online dating, I'm seeing 3 women all the time right now, So I can visit a bar or club not giving a shit whether I hit it off with anyone. can make me feel even more at ease (reduced "parched") And thus that much more attractive. I can easily walk away and still know I have a wide array of women on hand, but other women can sense that.
