Are you familiar with the Wizard of Oz? The Tin Man, a childhood classic, laments the way things would have been if he had a heart. The Scarecrow desires a brain and The Cowardly Lion wishes courage. Remember what happened to Dorothy and her motley friends when they peeked behind the curtain of Emerald City to see the great Wizard of Oz.
Every beloved character realized that they already had what they were looking for, but couldn’t see it. What does this amazing story have to offer you? There are many parallels.
As a child, I liked the Wizard of Oz. But it was too scary for me. Remember the horrible tornado that ripped Dorothy and Toto apart from their loving families? You may recall the venomous Wicked Witch and those flying monkeys. These things were frightening to me as a child because I was unable to predict what would happen next and didn’t fully understand much of what was going on. As I grew up, I saw it many times before realizing it was just a bad dream.

Your heart is what got you into the insurance business. Your clients and future depend on what you do. Why would you, or ever coerce them? How you treat people determines how they will respond to that connection.
Isn’t it your primary objective to find out who needs you the most and what they want? This requires that you use your heart as well as your brain. Your heart is what motivates you to get to know your prospect and what their needs are. Your brain takes the information they have shared with you and helps to make a better future.
