Unlearn-Unlearn-Unlearn

Has your thinking been challenged?

Patrick Bet-David presents a short film about the American Dream. From a young age, all of us are taught a defining picture of what makes a successful life. We are told by our parents, our teachers and the media that if we follow the rules, excel in school and get a job, we will find happiness and success. But why is it that many hard working individuals never really find that success? Why do so many people get left behind despite following the rules and doing what they’re told?

Sometimes we must UNLEARN some of the “truths” we’ve been taught in life in order to alter the status quo of our lives. This powerful film presents a new way of thinking based on the experiences of revolutionary thinker Patrick Bet-David, whose family fled to the United States during the Iranian Revolution.

Dare to challenge what you think you know? We welcome you to UNLEARN.

Thanks for watching the official movie for UNLEARN 2014.

Life Insurance

7 Life Insurance Myths That Should Die

NEW YORK (TheStreet)

Consumers view life insurance as a necessary evil. The joke among life insurance marketers is that under the term “necessary evil” in the dictionary is a photo of your life insurance policy.

Americans know they need life insurance — 85% of consumers say so — but the buying process can be confusing, and that causes hesitation in the market, flattening out life insurance policy purchases over the past three years

“Life insurance has never been as inexpensive or easy to buy — especially with the anticipated growth of online and nontraditional purchasing channels — yet, millions of consumers continue to put off the decision,” says Marvin H. Feldman, chief executive of the Life Foundation, which conducts an annual survey on consumers and life insurance. “Insurance professionals and our industry play a critical role in helping to educate the public on the wide range of options available and should continue to work together to help people get the life insurance coverage they know they need.

Still, even industry professionals know life insurance remains one of the most misunderstood areas of insurance.

“Who needs insurance, how much does it cost, and when should you get it?” asks Patrick Bet-David, chief executive of People Helping People, a Woodlands Hills, Calif., financial services company. “If you ask 10 different people on the street you’re likely to get 10 different answers — from ‘I’m too young’ to ‘It’s too expensive’ to ‘I’d rather invest the money.'”

Bet-David offers these responses to common myths on life insurance:

It’s not possible for a company to pay $500,000 in death benefits when I’m only paying $50 a month. If all policy holders kept their policies, life insurance companies would be in trouble, Bet-David says. “But they make their money because people tend to cancel their policies every seven to 10 years or so,” he says. “If you’re smart, you’ll keep the policy. They can afford to give $500,000 for $50 a month when they know that 98% of policyholders won’t keep their policy for the life of the policy.”

I’m young and don’t have a need for it. Most people eventually get married, Bet-David says. If you’re smart enough to buy it when you’re young and single with a low monthly cost, you’ll benefit in the long run. Also, you still have a need for final expenses, unpaid debts and medical bills.

Life insurance is more expensive today because of inflation. Life insurance cost is based mainly on your life expectancy. “If you live longer, your policy will be cheaper,” he says. “And today’s life expectancy is longer than ever, which means insurance is cheaper.”

Only breadwinners need coverage. Imagine what it costs to hire a homemaker raising kids, Bet-David says. Now multiply that times the amount of years your kids will be under your support financially — that’s how much insurance the homemaker needs.

Better to invest that money than buy coverage. You really can’t have too much life insurance. “The complaint is always, I wish I had more,” Bet-David says. “If you can’t afford a permanent policy the least you should do is protect yourself with a 30-year term” if age allows.

I won’t be dying anytime soon. I’ll get it later. “A very extensive study of roughly 113 billion people shows that 100% of people die,” Bet-David quips. “The only problem with that study is we don’t know when.”

My policy at the company I work at is plenty. It usually isn’t, since your life insurance value is normally two to three times your income. But even with that amount it’s very annoying when you get laid off from the company you’ve been with for 17 years, landing in your early 40s with no coverage and three dependents who count on your income. “Having your own policy outside of work protects you regardless of what your company decides to do,” he says.
