For Christopher Terry, IM Mastery Academy co-founder and CEO, the value of hard work is clear. As an entrepreneur who founded a leading online financial education platform, Terry speaks on the importance of hard work from his personal experience. He expounded on this in a recent video.
“I slept four hours a night. I worked most of the time. ‘Chris is up on stage in front of thousands of people because what? He worked,’” he said. “Some of you guys think work, W-O-R-K, is a four-letter word. Yes, it is. But you’re not going to become successful sitting backdoing nothing. You have to put the work in.”
Who Is Christopher Terry?
Christopher Terry established IM Mastery Academy with co-founder and CFO Isis Terry in 2013. After years of experience in the construction industry, Christopher Terry was introduced to the futures, foreign exchange (forex), and commodities markets. IM Mastery Academy arose out of Christopher Terry’s desire to bring Wall Street to Main Street and offer financial education that students could access online at their convenience.
Working Hard, Staying Positive
In his speeches to IM Mastery Academy students, Christopher Terry often stresses the importance of putting the nose to the grindstone for those pursuing empowerment through education. But he also emphasizes that hard work alone is not sufficient for success. In a recent video, he discussed the benefit of “working smart” and maintaining a positive attitude in the face of adversity.
“If you come from the mindset and thoughts that you’re struggling. Yeah, you are, you’re struggling. If you come from the thought that, ‘Man, I’m having a tough time with this,’ then you’re right. You’re having a tough time with this thing,” he said.
For Terry, hard work should not come from a place of fear or self-doubt; rather, it should come from a place of self-affirmation. It should be motivated by belief in one’s potential to meet challenges as they come and achieve profound personal growth.
“You see, adversity happens. People come into your life, and they have their own agenda,” said Terry. “The one thing that kept me alive and well is I got this hysterical strength, a level of strength I never had before. When adversity hit, I had to dig deep inside me, and I had to become more than I currently was.”
