Every morning, the goose laid for him a big, beautiful egg — an egg made of pure, shiny, solid gold.
And every morning, the man collected golden eggs. And little by little, egg by egg, he began to grow rich.
But the man wanted more. “My goose has all those golden eggs inside her,” he kept thinking. “Why not get them all at once?” One day he couldn’t wait any longer. He grabbed the goose and killed her. But there were no eggs inside her! “Why did I do that?” the man cried! “Now there will be no more golden eggs.”
One can compare one's own ability to earn income to the goose laying golden eggs. Once that ability is gone, then it's gone and hardship as a result of lost income will follow.
Most of us insure our home, our vehicle and even our life, but relatively few protect against the possibility of becoming disabled through an accident or illness and not being able to continue to work to earn an income, as a result.
Consult with a professional insurance advisor as soon as possible to review personalized disability insurance options. By not doing so puts you and your family at significant risk. Protect the goose that lays the golden eggs!
