This Dhanteras Secure Your Family’s Future With An Investment In Life Insurance
What answer do you expect when you ask yourself this question, “What is my ultimate goal in life”? You will be among the overwhelming majority, if your answer is “A secure financial future for my loved ones”.
We go through majority of our life working towards that one goal. Sure, your short term goals might be as common as achieving a certain milestone in your career or maybe making your first million before a certain age. But ultimately, they all culminate into one never-changing goal…. your family’s secure financial future!
Consciously or unconsciously, all our efforts and actions are aimed towards creating a secure financial future for our family. That includes making sure they are well-looked after even after we pass on.
It Is Human Nature
It is in Human nature to nurture. We spend our lives taking care of our family. Nurturing them to grow, become independent and make their mark in this world. Our father did it for us and their father did it for them.
Taking care of our family is not a new concept. It is as old as mankind itself. Caring for our loved ones is hard-wired into our DNA. It is just the definition that has changed.
For the first humans, keeping each other safe from the wild animals that roamed the earth, would have been the ultimate goal in their life.
For us now, it is making sure we are providing enough for our family to make their life comfortable and fulfilling. But, it is not just about material things. A family cannot be a family without love, caring and sharing.
So, this Dhanteras, Show Your Family You Care
Nothing can be simpler than this. Yet, this is the hardest thing to do for some people. Dhanteras is a wonderful occasion to open up. Of course your family knows that you love them. But, it is important that you tell them from time to time. You not only communicate your love, but you also keep channels of communication open for your family.
For some people, this is even harder than saying so in words. You can show that you care by treating them as your equals, and letting them know that their opinions and concerns matter to you. This is especially true in case of your children. By giving importance and due consideration to their opinions you are telling them that they are important for you. Dhanteras, with its festive atmosphere, presents a perfect occasion to show your love for your family.
Include Them in All Important Decisions
This is very important! For any emotional decision, important or otherwise, that you take that affect all your family, it is very important that you include them in the decision-making process. This shows that you love and respect them enough to really care for their inputs and opinions. It could be as mundane as selecting new furniture for the house or could be as life-changing as moving to a new house altogether. It is important that you all come together in the decisions that you take.
In today’s age of nuclear families and a fast paced life, more often than not, your parents or your grown-up children do not live with you. While it may not be possible to be physically with them all the time, the least you can do is call them. A phone call can sometimes work wonders and will definitely communicate your love and concern for their well-being.
This is especially true for your parents, who may be staying away from you. Dhanteras being the occasion for new beginnings, presents a perfect opportunity. Go ahead, pick up that phone and call your loved ones.
Make Time for Your Loved Ones
With almost all of us running the money-race, we sometimes lose the sight of our real goals. In our daily struggles of earning more and more money, and seeking advancements in our chosen careers, our loved ones tend to be neglected.
We often find it difficult, nay impossible, to take time out for the very people whose future we are trying to secure. This is an unfortunate reality, which we should learn to counter. Make a new beginning on this Dhanteras. Take out some family-time, especially from the long chains of work. Do this and yours will be a happy family and your children will love you even more!
It is refreshing to do something fun and different with your family, every once a while. This can be as simple as watching the latest children’s movie together or go window-shopping with your wife. Nothing can match the satisfaction of seeing their faces light up when you surprise them by doing things you don’t usually do.
This Dhanteras, you could surprise them with a gift that would take care of their financial future in no small measure. If you really want to surprise them, take an unexpected vacation or a road-trip where you can be together and have fun!
Respect Your Partner
Respect is probably one of the most fundamental building blocks of a successful relationship. Respect is important in any relationship. But it acquires a special importance in a marriage. Ultimately your children learn all about respect by watching how you and your partner treat each other.
As they say, there is no better time than now to treat each other with respect. Get her flowers for no reason. Cook their favourite meal in the middle of the week. The possibilities are endless, but the result will always be the same.
A strong loving bond.
Eat At Least One Meal A Day With Your Family
This one is highly underrated. But even a simple meal enjoyed together with your family, will deepen the ties that bind your family together. It is so simple. A family that eats together, stays together!
A dinner table is a great place to bond. A chance to share your day with your family and just to be with each other. A family that shares a meal will only grow strong.
Secure Their Future With The Best Gift Of All, Life Insurance
Life Insurance is probably the best way you can ensure a secured financial future for your family, even if you are not around to do so. It is called ‘Life Insurance’ for a reason. The basic purpose of a Life Insurance policy is nurturing by definition. With so many types of Life Insurance policies available (such as term insurance) nowadays, it is important that you choose a right one for your family.
This Dhanteras, you could quite easily gift them a secure financial future with the right Life Insurance policy.
These are our ways of how you can show your family that you care. But do not restrict yourself to these. You can find your own ways to show your love and affection for your family.
As mentioned earlier, exchanging meaningful gifts is yet another way to show your love. With the festive season coming up, it is an ideal time to gift your loved ones a gift they can cherish for life.
