We are often told by many people we interview, “We don’t need Insurance”, “We are healthy”, and “We live a healthy lifestyle”. “I’m not buying what you’re selling”. I respect that many of them are healthy and live healthy lifestyles, unfortunatly 100% of our population will die at some point in time.
Very often we have no reply because you can’t get someone to buy into the reason they need protection if they don’t want it to begin with. We have a plethora of lifetime stories that explain the reason there is a need for the products we sell. Again we are met with… “Yeah, but it will not happen to me”.
What do we do? How do we prepare someone who is invincible?
Yes, we get paid to sell a product that will ensure that your family is financialy secure. What we get paid is pennies on the dollar of what you can do for your families financial security in the future. Yes, you may not need the products we sell at the time we ask you to purchase protection for yourself and your family, because you are indeed healthy. But should an unfortunate event happen when you are not ready or prepared for it you will have protection. The security of knowing you are covered has to be worth something moving forward.
Here is an unfortunate story of one of the healthy ones, if you told me after the 2012 Olympics this great athlete would pass away within the next four years I would have said you were crazy.
How is this possible? She was one of the healthiest athletes in the world within her sport. It is unfortunate that I am profiling an athlete in this attempt to show that life threatening Illness does not pick and choose its partner.
Below is an excerpt of a healthy, strong, and very competitive athlete who has recently passed away at a very young age and is survived by a young family. This is a story that unfortunately helps us dipict the need for the protection we provide.
My symapthies go out to her family. Life is unfair on so many levels.
Olympic silver medallist, has died of cancer, aged 33. Tributes have flowed in from around the world, her rowing career was cut short when the mother of two was diagnosed with cervical cancer three years ago.
The three-time Olympian, began rowing while at her high school in Perth. Her talent for rowing was quickly discovered and as a 17-years-old she made the junior national team, where she went on to finish second in the junior women’s four. Two years later she made her first senior national team competing at the World Rowing Cup in the women’s four. The crew then went to the under-23 championships and won gold. She followed it up with a win in 2003 in the under-23 women’s double sculls…
…She competed again in the eight at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. She then took a year off from competitive rowing to have her daughter…
…In 2012 Olympic Games she won a Sliver medal in the women’s pair…
… A year later she had her second child and soon after the birth she was diagnosed with cancer. She continued to be involved in rowing, but in February 2014 she stepped away from the sport to concentrate on her health.
The world of rowing will always remember her with love and respect.
Her legacey will live on but unfortunately life can be taken from us at any time.
