I listen to books on tape all the time. Today as I was listening to one of my current favorites, this quote stopped me in my tracks:
“We are not a composite of everything that has ever happened to us, but rather what happens in our lives is almost always a result of those things we habitually think, and those things we habitually do. Life is the fruit of discipline – or lack of it. We are our habits.”
– Matthew Kelley, “The Rhythm of Life”
If you’re a seasoned Adjuster, are the things you’re doing building your value to your clients? I’ve known Adjusters who made a bunch of money on a single storm, but there was no further growth as an individual or as a professional. Their careers stagnated. On the other hand, I know many other Adjusters who continue to grow in their value year after year. The are now in demand year-round. They can pick and choose the companies they work for, the storms they work and they can practically name their price.
If you’re a new Adjuster just getting into the industry, welcome! I promise you, if you become the type of individual who thoroughly “owns” your career, and if you make a commitment to grow personally and professionally, you will get work and you will grow in value to your clients, becoming a pillar in the adjuster community and guaranteeing a long, lucrative career.
I’m thankful today for all of the ways in which I am reminded and made more deeply aware of how I am totally responsible for the results in my life.
An excellent question for the morning: “What do I want, why do I want it and when will I be/do/have it?”
And for the evening: “if I keep thinking, feeling and doing what I did today will I get what I want in life?”
We are our habits. Make your habits the habits of a successful Adjuster.
I truly wish every single reader the very best, and let us know how we can support you in your career!
