If an obstacle seems insurmountable or a goal unattainable, it can be easier just to set it aside. But do you remember your first car? Can you recall when you got your first apartment? How about your first job? None of them were likely perfect, but they served a purpose. They got you to the next step in your life. The first beater your dad bought for you may have been followed with a car you bought on your own. Perhaps it was a bit sportier and suitable for your personality. That first cramped apartment may have taught you how to better manage money and may have led to a bigger, better place. That first job? You may have accepted it because it was a paycheck, but now you want something more.
Life insurance often works in the same way. You may have visions of a million or multi-million dollar coverage but to get started you probably will settle for less. You know what? That’s alright. It is alright because getting started is the key.
When you are just getting started on your own, be responsible and have enough coverage to take care of your final expenses. You’ll want to quickly move to covering your debts, especially those that others may be responsible for. Then you can begin your journey to provide for those you love, paying off a mortgage and covering the living expenses for your family in the event of your death. Beyond that, there’s the possibility to provide an education for children by covering college expenses. Perhaps down the road, you can take out a life insurance policy to leave a legacy for a charitable organization in your name.
The point is you don’t have to do it all at once or do it now. It is, however, important to get started. Even just a modest policy to provide for your final expenses can set you on the path to a solid life insurance program.
