How to find your passion and make it your profession
When I was growing up in the 1990s, there were few professions that one could aspire for. Everyone was preparing for medicine, engineering or civil services. Pursuing a profession in fitness was unheard of. I too, tried to follow the norm and had a career in IT but was never happy with it.
Things changed when I was diagnosed with PCOS, an illness that affects my ability to have a child. This forced me to make serious lifestyle changes and focus on my health. This is when I got into fitness and really started to enjoy it. In fact, I liked it so much that I decided to become a full-time fitness and health coach.
I am extremely fortunate to be able to find my passion and make a career out of it. But following this path was not easy. I had to take courses and undergo a lot of training which was expensive. So, while following my passion required a lot of dedication, it also required financial planning. My advice to others wanting to do the same is to not only work hard but to plan it out. For such goals, I would suggest investing in plans that are low in risk and give a guaranteed return.
One such plan you can opt for is the Guaranteed Income for Tomorrow plan (GIFT) by ICICI Prudential Life. This plan is ideal as it provides a guaranteed income. You can receive this income as a one-time payment or month-on-month as a regular income. If you choose the regular income option, you can receive the money from the next year of purchasing the policy itself. You can even avail of a loan against this policy in case of a financial emergency. Additionally, the plan also provides financial protection for our loved ones with a life insurance cover. The plan covers COVID-19 life claims and helps us save tax too.
So, remember with proper financial planning, you too can achieve your dreams!
