IM Mastery Academy is a provider of online educational resources on topics ranging from financial markets to social media branding. The company also recently launched TLX, a travel and lifestyle service. For Christopher Terry, IM Mastery Academy co-founder and CEO, what unites the various academies and services offered by IM Mastery Academy is the goal of giving students the means to build a positive self-concept, and confidence grounded in the ability to pursue education on their own terms.
“You’re either growing or you’re going back. It’s like life, either you’re growing or dying. If you don’t continue to work on it, what’s going to happen? You’re going to go backward. What has happened is the conscious mind has battled the subconscious mind so much that the subconscious mind is starting to understand how to think like the conscious mind wants it, right? It’s changing,” said Terry in a recent speech. “If you don’t continue to have pressure to be better, you will revert backward. Your mind, you go through the change of reprogramming it, reading the books, watching the motivational videos, watching mindset videos. And you work to change.”
About Christopher Terry’s IM Mastery Academy
Christopher Terry founded IM Academy in 2013 to provide educational opportunities for any individual who wanted to pursue knowledge of financial markets, regardless of location or background. Terry combined an online educational model with a membership system that connects these individuals as they pursue their online education in topics such as the foreign exchange (forex) market and digital currencies.
As the Academy has grown in membership, Christopher Terry increased IM Mastery Academy’s offerings to cater to a more diverse variety of student demands. This has included additions of ECX, an e-commerce academy that educates students on how to establish and operate an online store, and TBX, an academy focused on a time-based intraday exchange strategy known as scalping that involves making several exchanges over the course of a day.
The company has ramped up expansion recently, launching two new academies, with the SFX Academy on stocks and futures market launching in September, and the SMX Academy on social media marketing and branding launching in October.
Each academy features a mix of videos, readings, and live mentorship opportunities through IM Academy’s GoLive service, which connects students with educators in live online discussions.
Christopher Terry’s expansion of IM Mastery Academy is rooted in a general philosophy that a positive self-concept and a willingness to learn can drive educational pursuits across topic areas for those with genuine interest and work ethic.
“There’s so much mindset stuff out there. You can find it all day, 24 hours a day. Whether it’s religious, whether it’s technical, whatever it is, work on yourself first,” said Terry in another recent appearance. “In the morning, you wake up, work on yourself for an hour. I work on myself for 30 to 60 minutes every single morning when I’m tired, when I’m awake, when I’m mad, when I’m angry, when I’m happy, when I’m sad. You got to work on yourself.”
Building on a Positive Mindset
For Christopher Terry, IM Mastery Academy is all about building an education on the foundation of an optimistic mindset and belief in oneself. When Terry speaks at IM Mastery Academy events, he stresses that proceeding with a plan is key, and students should maintain a positive self-concept when they consider their educational plans.
“Why would you discount yourself and your value? You already have that value. You have that worth. You have that worth inside you already, but too many of us discount our worth and devalue it where you lower your values and your standards of who you really are to please somebody else who has lower, lower, lower standards. You try to impress people and lower your values,” said Terry in a video posted to his YouTube channel. “Don’t you ever devalue yourself. You walk around with the highest standards also. You don’t have to do anything less than being the highest character in quality.”
Whether students want to study financial markets, e-commerce, or social media, Christopher Terry designed IM Academy to support those who are self-motivated learners and want flexible online resources along with opportunities for live interaction with educators. The thread that ties all of IM Mastery Academy’s offerings together is a focus on providing opportunities for individuals who want to build a strong self-concept through the diligent pursuit of education.
