I was always taught that looking for the positive in every situation should be your only option. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, ‘Turn that frown upside-down!’
This sounds great but often it’s rather difficult to do, especially for me.
You see I am a stubbornly proud farm girl and at twelve years old, I admit I had trouble seeing the ‘good’ sometimes. One time I remember my older sister was telling her new boyfriend that I was a little wimp and she could thump the tar out of me if she wanted to.
You see, although we never really fought, the exact opposite was true and I decided to prove it by putting her in a headlock and make her beg for me to let her go, in front of her new boyfriend of course. Not the ‘right’ thing to do but right or wrong it did make me feel good for a few minutes!
If it was tough for me to do the right thing then, you can imagine how difficult it is for me now sometimes, when life is a lot more complex.
So back to real life.
The first thing we hear about insurance is likely negative, from me included. Regardless of the fact that we really do need it and it does save a lot of people from financial ruin.
We hear about how expensive life insurance is and how ALL life insurance agents are pushy and rude. People talk about how difficult it is to make a claim and that the insurance agent mislead them with their policy and they don’t have the protection they thought they had.
I could go on but why don’t we try focusing on the positive for once?
Life insurance is something that can protect you and your family after a tragedy has occurred. Yes there are some insurances that would be a waste of money for everybody but if you take the time to find out what type of life insurance coverage suits your needs, you will minimize your expenses and ensure you are protected if your world is turned upside-down.
There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ life insurance policy but there is coverage that suits your situation best. By having the right amount of coverage if you die, your loved ones won’t be stuck trying to pay off all your debts or lower their standard of living in order to pay for all of your loose ends.
Doesn’t this make sense to you?
Try focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel and see all the good that insurance companies can offer.
It’s really not that tough if you choose to give it a shot. I double dog dare you try it!
