Focus Life Institute is an on-line, educational, strategic training curriculum that is focused on equipping students, young professionals or individuals wanting to advance their personal growth and development to climb their mountain of success. Our development tools were created to educate, enlighten, equip, energize and empower individuals to overcome personal distractions, create a lifestyle of focus, and achieve their destiny in life.
Two areas that many people want to focus on are Personal Development and Personal Fulfillment. Personal Development covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. Personal fulfilment is the achievement of life goals which are important to an individual, in contrast to the goals of society, family and other collective obligations.
One major reason why many are NOT fulfilling personal development or fulfillment in their lives is because of distractions in the world. We live in an age of distractions! The average attention span is now under 8 seconds while people are spending on an average over 2 hours per day time on Facebook and over 6 hours per day on the internet that is not helping them produce results.
At the Focus Life Institute, we have created our strategic development tools to be implemented to those individuals who want to see personal growth and have a limited amount of time to improve their personal and professional lives at work and at home. Each of our modules take between 8-10 hours of your time to complete. You have the option of how to control your time and effort into each session of the specific development tool.
Listed below are a few targeted areas for Personal Development and Personal Fulfillment:
