Jim Larsen on His Journey of Self-Development

‘Chase your dreams’ is a common piece of advice people give to each other when choosing the career path to follow in their life. It is very easy to say this but just as difficult to implement it in your life especially if you are not so financially stable. 

The key to success is self-development. It is the most important investment you can make that is bound to bring you countless new opportunities. Once Jim started believing in himself and became mindful of what he wanted, he was then able to set an intentional plan to achieve his goals. Taking the risk of partnering with a skincare company opened new doors for him. After gaining success and recognition, he authored a book and toured the country as a high-demand speaker in the Network Marketing circles. Furthermore, the speaking circuit gave him the opportunity to coach high-level entrepreneurial clients and start his own business coaching company ‘The Focus Initiative.’ 

Moreover, many other distinct factors helped turn his dreams into reality. His success story is one of learning how to make everything enjoyable for himself so he does not lose interest and stays motivated. He says, “I am arguably the most fun person you’ll ever meet.” and refers to this as a blessing and curse, both, because he never wants to do stuff that isn’t fun but also uses it to make his work more entertaining. 

Jim learned how to connect his dreams to his activity and started setting activity-based goals. He knows that he can achieve his desirable results if he keeps a check over his activity, pace, and attitude. This mindset allows him to work in a relaxed manner and avoid unnecessary pressure. Another factor that contributed to his success was his habit of planning ahead. Instead of leaving it to fate, he used to plan everything before time and do everything in his power to make sure everything goes accordingly. Other than this, he refuses to multi-task. He says “I give 100% of myself to whatever I’ve chosen to do at that moment: whether that’s building a marketing campaign, inviting people to join me in business, or dating my wife”. This proves the importance of staying in a particular zone as you are much likely to mess things up if there is too much going on in your brain at a particular time.

Consequently, it requires a lot of hard work to be able to follow the advice ‘Chase your dreams’ but everyone should believe in themselves enough to at least give it a shot. Jim Larsen was previously ambushed by thoughts that made him feel like success was never in the cards for him but once he started believing in himself, there was no obstacle that he couldn’t overcome.
