Life Insurance

Apr 17, 2008
If you have a car, then it makes sense that you take out car insurance. After all, you want to protect yourself should you get into an accident. If you have a home, then it makes sense that you take out house insurance. After all, you want to protect yourself should something happen to your house. If you go on a holiday, you take out travel insurance. After all, you want to protect yourself should something occur while you are on vacation.

So, if you're alive, then it makes sense that you take out life insurance. After all, you want to protect yourself. Period.

Life insurance is not about where your money goes when you die, or who gets your antique Sidney Crosby hockey stick. Life insurance is about attributing value to the life that you've led and have worked hard to achieve.

Think about it: you went to college or university so you could get a higher education so you can get the dream job. You paid off all your student debts. You've saved enough money to purchase and own your own house. You have a nice car, live in a nice neighborhood, have a safe job and you take care of yourself by eating right, living clean and exercising.

Well, all of those things has a value to it besides just doing so for the sake of it. The value of staying healthy goes beyond what your gym membership costs. The value of your safe job is more than your paycheck. The value of where you live is higher than your mortgage. Of course, you might not be able to put a dollar value on all of these things. But, the right life insurance plan can create a value amount.

Life insurance takes into account basically every factor of your life and assigns an amount to it. The more hazardous your life is, the more it will cost to insure it. But, take a moment and just think about your life, how you live it and what you do on a day-to-day basis. Now, you might think that your everyday life is boring and doesn't really have value - but it does - even if you don't know it.

If you don't have life insurance, you should. Not just for your sake, but for the protection of your family too. Should something happen to you, the last thing that your grieving family needs to worry about is, well, anything. Life insurance gives them, and you, the peace of mind in knowing that should something terrible ever happen to you, there is a safety net ready to spring into action.

Life insurance is probably the last thing that's on your mind. But, really, it should be the first thing that you look into when you are starting on your life's journey. You (cliche alert) simply do not know what the future will bring - but you at least want to make certain that you are protected and covered in any event, just in case. That's what life insurance does, and that's what life insurance is all about.
