So, we have this radio commercial playing in our local area from a life insurance provider, whose message pretty much says, “Hey, you have diabetes, heart issues, and maybe even cancer, so you’d better get some life insurance.”
There was no message of hope or even an alternative, just a “final destination.” The information is understandable, but the message is morbid and seems to be saying that all hope is lost, but for a price, you can go ahead and die and leave some money behind. Insurance companies’ solution to these conditions is to buy life insurance and “give in” rather than buy time and “get going”.
I’m not talking about fighting these issues with meds and chemicals, but with a real life insurance policy: fitness. Fitness will not help anyone live forever, but it will help anyone live the rest of their years at the highest possible level. I know that getting to the gym, the hiking trail, or the basketball court is difficult at times, but it sure has to be better than accepting a sub-standard, disease-ridden life, hopelessness, or a sooner-than-later death.
If you’re reading this and live in close proximity to Heritage Medical Group, we’ll give you a free life insurance policy of fitness, which ensures your last days, through our free fitness programs, will be lived to the fullest.
Instead of giving in weakly, you’ll go on fighting. Got it? Good.
