Attitude plays a key role in people life whether a person would be successful or failure in near future, all are implications of one's attitude, his attitude toward simpler things of profession, how he thinks about his profession, There are some millionaire life insurance advisors and then there are some advisors who earn very low from this profession. How is this so, one advisor earning millions and the other earning a meagre income.

2. KNOWLEDGE SKILLS AND TRAINING
As everyone knows it is very easy to get a licence to work as insurance advisor in insurance company but to become successful is very hard.
But the question is Why?
Answer is When a person with basic qualifications fill a form for insurance advisor, pays a negligible fee and after some study clears insurance advisor exam of I.R.D.A. Then without trainings (which are not mandatory after clearing exam) he tries to do insurance business in market which is said to be one of most difficult businesss, and fails miserably,
Some people may not agree with me but look at industry data about drop ratio of life insurance advisors, the drop ratio is more than 85 %.
It is because of improper trainings, lack of practical knowledge, presentation and necessary skills to do life insurance business. That's why a majority of people fails because there is nothing at stake for them, and it's an "easy entry, easy exit type" theory.
But the rest of people who sticks to their Jobs as insurance advisors, learns necessary skills, acquires knowledge of Life insurance products, financial, insurance needs and portfolio management of clients succeeds and earns millions
Remember, these skills are not mandatory part of procedure to become life insurance advisor, but they are the key ingredients to become successful as life insurance advisor. There is no official regulations to learn all these skills that's why most of the people fails, and those who were self-disciplined, eager to learn new skills, trains and acquire knowledge through their mentors achieve great success.
So if you are an Insurance Advisor, Talk to your mentor and ask him/her, train under him/her and follow him/her completely without any doubt.
"Thank me later when you succeed"

Remember what I said about thought process in ATTITUDE.
When you are serious about success only then you get it Only 5% of people achieve top positions in any sector Why?

Consistency is the quality of steadfastness, reliability, and unwavering commitment to action. It is the ability to show up day after day, maintaining a disciplined approach towards our goals and responsibilities. Consistency forms the base of success.
When we are consistent, we create a predictable pattern of behaviour that others can rely on, fostering trust and strengthening relationships. Consistency also breeds self-trust, as we prove to ourselves that we are capable of staying true to our intentions and following through on our commitments.
In a world filled with distractions and constant change, consistency provides stability and a sense of control. It helps us stay focused on what truly matters, ensuring that we make progress even in the face of challenges. Consistency enables us to weather storms, bounce back from failures, and maintain resilience in the pursuit of our dreams.
Moreover, consistency is a powerful tool for personal growth and development. By consistently engaging in actions that align with our values and aspirations, we reinforce positive habits, expand our knowledge, and cultivate new skills. It is through consistent effort that we transform our potential into reality.
It requires discipline, focus, and perseverance. But the rewards are manifold: a sense of accomplishment, a reputation for reliability, and the fulfilment that comes from knowing we have given our best consistently.
In summary, consistency is a fundamental principle that underpins success, growth, and fulfilment. It is the steady force that propels us forward, the building block for habits and relationships, and the anchor that keeps us grounded amidst the uncertainties of life. By embracing consistency, we pave the way for transformation and unlock our true potential.
