Sadly, no one can go through life unscathed. Along the journey, you’ll inevitably face numerous adversities that might make you feel like the world is against you. However, don’t treat it as a sign to give up. Instead, think of it as a test that will point you to the path that is truly meant for you. This way, just like Brandon Beal, you might find greatness waiting for you.
Brandon lived his life thinking that being a football athlete was his future. He went to Northern Illinois University, pursued his passion for the sport, and spent most of his time training. In 2010, he was finally given a chance to try out for a professional football team. However, near the end of the game, a life-changing event happened to him.
During the game, Brandon tore his Peroneus Longus, which is a ligament in his foot. The injury was so severe that he had to be rehabilitated for almost a year, but his goal was still in football and he refused to give up. He signed a contract with Arena Football in Chicago in hopes of reclaiming his life in sports. However, after two years, he realized that maybe football wasn’t meant for him.
He was devastated when he was forced to give up on his dreams and dedication to football. Even if he wanted to pursue a different career path, sports and fitness were the only careers in which he had knowledge. However, Brandon has always been competitive, and his lack of knowledge and experience was not going to stop him from finding another career that would provide the financial security he needed.
Brandon pursued a career in financial services, although he didn’t have any knowledge of it. However, he knew that he could help others attain financial freedom and live their life to the fullest through this profession. The journey was arduous, but he believed that he could cause positive changes in people’s lives.
Fast forward to today, Brandon is now the founder and CEO of Beal Financial Group. At this point, the company has already helped numerous families find protection with insurance. He’s now also one of the most influential people in the financial services industry. His impact has even reached social media on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Besides servicing its clients, the Beal Financial Group also hires and trains insurance agents across 50 states in the US. The company has given them the opportunity and knowledge to earn a stable income while being able to help other people, making their profession even more rewarding. In the future, Brandon aims to help at least a hundred agents reach 7 figures in their careers.
Through Brandon’s story, he has proven how unexpected life is. It may turn out totally different from what you imagined. At the beginning of the journey, you might also think that you don’t have what it takes to be successful. However, Brandon has been through it all firsthand, so he says that if you believe in the path life presents you and do your best, you can turn adversities into blessings.
