non-compete & employment contracts

My employer requires I sell a minimum of 56 insurance policies monthly or my base wage is reduced. I signed assuming it was a reasonable standard. Now I find less than 5 of 60 employees regularly meet the minimum. That seems like too high a bar and we are prohibited to move to a competitor by their non-compete. Is this enforcable if the minimum is virtually unobtainable? I feel deceived by them and painted into a corner. I would never have agreed to if I knew ahead of time that it was almost impossible to reach the minimum sales objective.
