What Day Is Yours and Yours Alone?

Everybody’s has one day during the year that’s theirs and theirs alone.  It seems, from a magical standpoint, that nobody can lay a hand on their day. It’s their birthday.

That’s why it’s really important to recognize people on their special day that’s theirs and theirs alone.  It just further cements the emotional relationship that you have with them.  Relationships are really, really important. Money follows trust.

Who do you want them to trust with their insurance relationship? You got it, your agency.

We send out approximately 200 to 250 birthday cards a month.  We use a specific online system for sending birthday cards.  If you’d like to know more about that just ask me about it.  I’ll be happy to share it with you.  It’s personalized.  We can change it up.  We can put photos on it if we want to.  It’s AWESOME!

This is just one more tool you may implement IMMEDIATELY to help transform your agency into a profit producing machine

“The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.”  -Pierre Cornielle

PS A recent conversation with an agent I work with revealed that his agency started calling people on their birthday at the end of each day, each agency team member making 3-6 phone calls, less than one minute to say “Happy Birthday”. Not only was this a HUGE “WOW” for the client, prospect or COI, the agency team member walks out the door feeling great because they just made 3-6 people feel awesome. How much is that “worth” in lifetime value to the client, prospect or COI AND the agency team member AND their family they arrive home in a great mood with a great attitude about what just occurred. We become what we think about.

What Life IS Really All About

As I wrote this week’s message to you, the following was passed to me by one of my staff members and I felt THIS message was more important than anything else I had to say.

It’s going to make you pause and ask yourself what life is really about.
This story is worth a few minutes of your time, sometimes we need to take a step back and reflect before going forward:

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question:

‘When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection.Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do.
Where is the natural order of things in my son?’ The audience was stilled by the query.The father continued. ‘I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.’

Then he told the following story:
Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, ‘Do you think they’ll let me play?’
I knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a father I also understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, ‘We’re losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning.’Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt. I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart. The boys saw my joy at my son being accepted.In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from the stands.In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay’s team scored again.Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat. At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat.Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn’t even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay’s life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact.
The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.
The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay…

As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.
The game would now be over.
The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman.
Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.
Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman’s head, out of reach of all team mates.
Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, ‘Shay, run to first! Run to first!’
Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base.
He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, ‘Run to second, run to second!’
Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base.
By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball. The smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team.
He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman’s
head.
Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home.
All were screaming, ‘Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay’
Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, ‘Run to third! Shay, run to third!’
As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, ‘Shay, run home! Run home!’
Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team
‘That day’, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, ‘the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world’.

Shay didn’t make it to another summer.

He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

From Our Family to Yours-Thanksgiving is a Time to Remember

Hello Friends,

Thankfulness is the theme in our agency this Holiday Season so we created the following message to share with everyone we care about.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember the things we have to be grateful for. It’s a special time to give thanks… not just for the obvious, like food, but for the thousands of fortunate moments, the multitude of blessings that we receive each year.

That’s not always as easy as it sounds, especially today. We tend to remember the bad things much more easily than the good. Below are some tips to help people who desire to make thankfulness an everyday habit. It’s a routine that will benefit throughout the year. Please pass this on to anyone who might be able to use it:

1. Begin by keeping a gratitude journal. Try and stay away from writing down negative things; only positive ones. For example, “I’m grateful that I made it through that heavy rush hour traffic safely.” “I’m grateful that I got to see a beautiful sunset.” “I’m grateful that I have a class at school that I really like.”

2. Think of all the good things that happened because something bad happened first. For example, “If that slow driver hadn’t pulled in front of me, I would have gotten a speeding ticket.” “If I hadn’t tripped on the playground, I would never have met such a nice person.” “If I hadn’t experienced unemployment, I would never have acquired the skills that got me a more fulfilling job.”

3. Don’t focus on what you don’t have. Focus on what you do have. For example: “I’m so fortunate to have a warm place to sleep in at night.” “I’m so fortunate to live in a safe neighborhood where I can take walks.” “I’m so fortunate to be able to see the beauty around me.”

4. Think about people you’ve known that have made you thankful for their existence. They can be family, friends or simply people that you’ve read about or seen on television. Imagine how many other people there are who might be equally as wonderful. You just haven’t met them yet.

5. Think about people who have made life hard for you. Now think about the things you accomplished because of them. Did you finish something because they said that you couldn’t? Did you get better at something because they made fun of you when you did it badly? Did their cruel actions make you vow never to treat others that way? Even the negative forces in your life can be hidden blessings, worthy of gratitude.

6. Think about the animals that have given you joy: Dogs that love you with every inch of their hearts, cats that think your lap is the best place to nap in the whole world, birds whose songs uplift your spirit, squirrels whose antics put a grin on your face and so on.

7. Think about the places that make you smile: A favorite hangout, a wooded trail, an exciting city, a great spot from which to view the sky, a hill that you once rolled down. Give thanks for all these things.

Now pass it on. True gratitude involves action. Lend a hand. Pitch in. Make a gift. Give your time. Listen. Give back as often as you can. Even a friendly greeting can make all the difference in the world.

From our family to yours, a very safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday.

Mike Stromsoe

How Often Do You Hit The Wall?

Recently I was on my Saturday morning group bicycle ride when, at about the 54 mile mark, a long-term friend of mine, who rode with our group for the first time that day, suddenly slowed down and said “I’ve hit my wall”.

I didn’t really think about what he meant by hitting the wall until we finished the ride and I was driving home. Here it is, a few days later, and I’m still thinking about, and I’ve also shared with many of my colleagues in various industries, my thoughts about “the wall”.

The significance of hitting the wall in anything that we do has been on my mind ever since. Why is this a critically important factor that we must strongly consider in our every day lives? You see, my friend at the 54 mile mark, had given it everything that he had. He dug as deep as was possible within his body, and asked his body to respond. At the 54 mile mark, he had no more. Just imagine if we put forth kind of effort in our businesses or charitable contributions every single day! What would the results be like? Would it be bigger than you ever thought possible?

I challenge you today to go out and hit your wall every single day, in everything that you do. One other thought. What if you’re feeling like, well I don’t necessarily want to hit the wall based on what I’m doing? Well, I would encourage you to change what you are doing and spend the majority of your time in the area that you’re most passionate about or sometimes what we call your personal gift. Working in the area of your passion the majority of the time will accelerate you and help you hit the wall in everything that you do.

I hope this helps you create the life of your dreams. Make a difference and be unstoppable.

Every Minute of Every Day

Last week I accompanied a family member to a chemotherapy appointment.

Take advantage of every opportunity to reach out to someone every minute of every day. Make a difference, Be Unstoppable.
