08 Aug Fireman
A Financial Advisor is invaluable ; A Story
A fireman and his team entered a house with a kitchen fire. They tried to douse the fire but the fire wouldn’t get contained.
The fireman then all of a sudden ordered his men to leave the house. In the very next moment the floor of the house on which they were standing collapsed.
THE FIRE WAS ACTUALLY IN THE BASEMENT AND THEY WOULD HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE INTUITION SHOWN BY THE FIREMAN (THE LEADER IN COMMAND)
What made the fireman order the evacuation? His reasons were
1) He felt excess heat in the drawing room although the fire was in the kitchen
2) He noticed the fire was unusually quiet without any noise
3) He noticed that despite all efforts the fire was not responding to water which he felt for a kitchen fire was unusual
In the midst of a fire there was no time to analyse these things. He had to intuitively make a decision.
The analysis happened in his subconscious mind all the time and that prodded him to take the decision to evacuate his men from the house.
At that instant even he was not fully aware of the analysis. All he did was follow the instructions of his sub conscious which came through expertise, and experience.
Intuition plays a very large role when it comes to offering services. While there will be technology that will continue to help make investment decisions, the Advisor brings invaluable insights and intuitive thinking based on his experiences which can prove to be extremely invaluable during key moments in one’s investment journey.
A Financial Advisor may not be required 90% of the time but the 10% of the time that he his required decides 100% of the investor’s Financial fate.
