Overcoming fear

It’s an accomplishment.  Another agent and I spent several hours today doing home canvassing in a couple different communities.  What makes this different from last week’s canvassing is that the other agent is a newcomer too, in fact he started a week or two after me.  I couldn’t rely on him to step in if things got difficult, and of course it was the same way for him.  I’m glad to say that I was able to overcome my fears of home canvassing, in fact I may soon be able to do it completely by myself.  We got a couple of attitudes from people, but nothing I won’t be able to handle.  And most people weren’t rude or angry at all.  It probably helps that we use a neighbor’s/policyholder’s name at each stop.  After several hours’ of work we ended up with some promising leads, and best of all with an essential dose of courage.

Gym: a 2.4-mile run on the treadmill at my customary plod pace of 4.6 mph.
