As Shakespeare once said, “Life is a journey from cradle to coffin.” True, life is all about aspirations and what we have accomplished - the different milestones. When we pause to think about life’s accomplishments, some of us count on higher education abroad or marriage, others think of their first pursuit at doing something of their own, travelling to famous locales or helping the needy.
From life’s multifaceted store of experiences, let us zero down on some significant milestones that we all aspire to achieve with a lot of determination and a little help:
Study Abroad Plans
When the thought of a better future and the aspiration to explore different cultures and lifestyles strikes, planning a higher education abroad is what we aim at. The small steps like getting accepted in our choice of University, getting the scholarship fund, balancing the work-study pressure and finally graduating help us achieve this milestone. But, in the process we also need a little help like parental guidance, student loans, financial aid from parents/relatives or banks and maybe even a reference or two from our mentors or past employers.
Being Financially Secure
It takes a lot of persistence and determination to save a good balance and secure the future, given the varied opportunities we have today to spend the hard earned moolah. But the time of our life, when we are finally able to secure ourselves financially is one worthy of celebration as it proves that our hard work and consistency has been worth it. It also shows how the little help from people who motivated us to take calculated risks and invest in diverse portfolios, was the need of the hour.
Building up a Successful Career
Each day we might be fixing some career goals and moving a little closer to success. The pursuit towards success is a long-term one and is an evolving ambition that changes with our aspirations. Consistency, determination and hard work are all prerequisites but a little help from our first job employers who pushed us for more, helpful colleagues and supportive families go a long way in helping us achieve this huge milestone.
Travelling the World
Travelling opens up new avenues, makes you more independent and adds more friends on your list. It helps you understand yourself and others better, gives you the ultimate freedom yet makes you responsible and makes you happy even when alone. Travelling is one of the most important milestones of life and it is best done solo. However, a little help from a friend, a good travel companion or your travel guide is what makes the experience even more worthwhile.
Visiting a new place for leisure or work and settling there are very different. Though both have their own perks, settling in a place that is not your native country is an experience worth having. Exploring and adjusting to a new culture, way of living and meeting different set of people are experiences only a foreign life and place can teach you. Whether for studies or work, living abroad at least once in life is an essential milestone. But, while you manage the finances on your own, a little help from the immigration agencies and job consultancies paves the way for a smoother foreign settlement.
Thought to be the most important milestone of one’s life, this involves including a new family member, learning to be more responsible and building a life with someone new. Marriage involves the two people getting married but sometimes a little help in the form of parental advice, marriage counselors and the legal system gives you the eternal joy.
Starting a Family
A whole new book opens up when you welcome your first bundle of joy. You get to re-embrace your childhood with your first born, helping them become a better version of you. Your little one too needs a little help from family, friends and relatives but finances go a long way in securing your child’s future.
Doing something selfless
Doing something selflessly for the benefit of others can help you become more humane. An important milestone in recognizing your true worth, and helping someone else understand theirs too. You can always take a little help from NGOs, volunteer organizations and friends who think alike.
Owning a dream home
Almost all of us have the aspiration of buying a dream home - a place we can call our own, a place that reflects our true worth. Making this investment for life is about securing our place in the world, defining our success and proving our worth. But not at all times the journey to our dream home is a pleasant one; the value of the property we have set our heart on could well escalate our finances. It’s important at this time to calculate the payable down payment and required loan amount. But it is more important to realize that our True Worth is not based on our current incomes, it is based on life’s greatest treasures – our work, hopes, dreams, ambitions and capabilities and that is what decides the value of the home loan and the type of home we deserve! Aditya Birla Finance Home Loans helps you identify and understand your true worth by taking into cognizance your future potential as well because that reflects your true worth and not just your current paperwork. Go ahead, dream big and watch this video to understand why you should buy a home worthy of you and how the perfect home loan can help you achieve this colossal milestone of your life.
