About the firm: http://www.goldicon.co.uk/about/
GoldIcon Enterprise has hosted a companywide workshop that has been specifically designed to help their contractors and staff to progress their goals as they embark on an exciting yet challenging 2018.
The firm has picked out the most important points that were covered:
1.) Stop comparing yourselves to others
Most people share the same detrimental trait; they constantly compare themselves to others (helped with the rise of social media). In doing so, you jeopardise the chance of success in anything, not just business. To accomplish dreams and goals you must forget about the rest, and focus on yourself. Focus all efforts on the pursuit of your end goal.
Being envious, constantly comparing and competing with others is not healthy mentally but it's also very detrimental within a business capacity. Stay in your own lane and focus on where you want to go, no matter how long it takes.
2.) Don't just talk about it, do it!
The saying “actions speak louder than words” is more than just a saying. If you want people to take you and your goals seriously, you must demonstrate your will and determination in your actions. It's all well and good telling people what you want to achieve, but if you don’t implement a strategy of getting there, people will take you with a pinch of salt.
3.) Blockout the naysayers, haters or detractors
Over time you will encounter many that will doubt you and try to stop you from achieving your goals, you should be concerned if these people aren’t trying to bring you down. It's incredibly important never to let negative feedback deter you from your end goal. Nobody can stop you from achieving, other than yourself.
“I adopt the stance that hating is the sincerest form of flattery. A lot of us can often bring ourselves down by focusing on the negatives being said about us despite them often being untrue. It's important for all of us to focus on ourselves and not others. We wanted to encourage all our contractors to think differently in order to become the best they can be”- Stated Dwayne Foster, Managing Director of GoldIcon enterprise.
