The only thing certain about life is uncertainty. You never know which road life will take you on, who you will bump into on the way and which new directions you'll be exploring when you're suddenly hit by certain road blocks. However, this doesn’t mean you should sit idle and let destiny decide what your next course of action in life should be. To stand strong against the uncertainties of life, be certain of your financial well-being--this will not only help you protect your own dreams but also those of your loved ones.

A step in the right direction is buying life insurance. However, the biggest problem is that, in India, not many people understand the key role that life insurance can play in their lives. People often confuse life insurance with investment, savings or tax savings. Recent stats suggest that, despite the efforts and investments of the industry comprising 24 players over decades, the category penetration remains 3.1%.

Here we share five reasons why you should buy life insurance:

  1. To create assets
  2. To protect your assets
  3. To finance your children’s dreams and ambitions
  4. To plan your retirement
  5. To take care of your health

And if the reasons above are not convincing enough for you, take a look at the video below. It depicts the extraordinary story of an ordinary man, who didn’t allow destiny to enslave him and dictate the fate of his life. Rather, he chose to become the author of his own life, the painter of his own life’s canvases, and the master of his own destiny. #KhudKoKarBuland

Doesn’t this video sum up life in the most simple yet hard-hitting way, and beautifully convey the message that nothing can stand in the way of someone who is prepared against all odds? So what are you waiting for? Become the master of your own destiny and be prepared to face any surprises which this journey called life has in store for you. Face all the challenges that life throws at you and emerge a winner—always. Because Honi ko aap rok nahi sakte, par honi bhi aap ko kahaan rok sakegi?
