Goldstream Incorporated on why Self-Confidence is the Most Important Trait for Success
Nottingham-based outsourced sales and marketing firm Goldstream Incorporated have experience coaching and mentoring different types of individuals, and the one trait they have found to be most crucial for achieving success is self-confidence.
CEO at Goldstream Incorporated Dan Coolican has a passion for coaching and training aspiring entrepreneurs, and through his time as a business coach and mentor, the award-winning entrepreneur and business owner has determined self-confidence to be one of the most important traits for professional success.
During a recent company workshop, Mr Coolican revealed to the firm’s staff and contractors how they could boost their self-confidence;
- Positive thinking
Goldstream Incorporated argue that self-confidence is a state of mind and that someone’s thoughts can have a tangible effect on their results. “A positive mind attracts positive results. By simply retraining your brain to focus on the positives can pay dividends,” commented Mr Coolican.
- Eliminate negativity
Negativity is contagious and will never foster positive results. Goldstream Incorporated believe that the most confident people have the ability to eliminate all negative influences, allowing them to maintain a positive attitude and achieve confidence in their own ability. The outsourced sales and marketing specialists argue that negative thoughts and insecurities affect everyone, but it’s how someone deals with those ideas that separate the successful from the unsuccessful.
- Focus on personal growth
One of Mr Coolican’s personal goals is to help nurture the firm’s staff and contractors to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. The CEO has created a culture of development at Goldstream Incorporated and through on-going coaching and mentoring – as well as educational and motivational workshops and seminars – the firm helps their staff and contractors to learn, grow and develop, both personally and professionally.
- Dress for success
Mr Coolican has a personal belief that people should dress for the role they want, not for the one they are in. At Goldstream Incorporated they promote the idea that people should dress for success. “It’s important to dress for success. When you look good, you feel good, and that boosts confidence,” commented Mr Coolican.
- Be prepared
Benjamin Franklin famously said “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” At Goldstream Incorporated they believe that preparation is one of the most essential elements for confidence. Preparation gives people confidence in their abilities to perform.
- Set small, achievable goals
Goal setting is a key focus at Goldstream Incorporated. “Having a goal to work towards is crucial for maintaining motivation, however a lot of people lose confidence because they set themselves up for failure by setting goals that are out of reach,” commented Mr Coolican. Goldstream Incorporated encourage people to focus on small, achievable goals that will instil a sense of satisfaction and confidence to keep setting bigger and better goals.
- Keep learning
CEO Dan Coolican has a thirst for knowledge and he argues that all aspiring professionals should absorb information like a sponge. The firm are committed to ongoing education through frequent workshops and seminars to help their staff and contractors to expand their knowledge and skill-set, setting them up for future success. “The more you know, the further you can go and becoming more knowledgeable will simultaneously boost confidence,” commented Mr Coolican.
