There is no failure, there is only feedback.

Do you spend daydreaming to reach this goal and feel on top of the world? 

Do you feel disheartened because you gave a try and it didn't work out?

Do you file this experience into your failed attempts or a learning experience? or maybe in both of them?

Let me tell you a wisdom bomb: there is no failure, there is only feedback. The definition of failure, as we learned it, is the definition who pushed all of us to be perfectionist and not tolerate a single mistake from us. This is hardcore. The problem is, we are human beings, not robots. 

You are a work in progress, not a finished product.

Your body, your mind are evolving daily, how can you set the bar so high ? 

I love Psychologies magazine because it shows you that performance and productivity glorified by our culture/society is a direct door to exhaustion and burnout and detrimental to your well-being. The key is to observe and make a honest assessment of your habits, behaviours, patterns to be brave enough to create change in your life.

The first key to do that is to start small. Always small, step by step to give time to your ego to adjust to it and let you lead the way. When you give a try and face any fear (false evidence appearing real), you open a door for a fresh start and new possibilities. 

The second key is to do something different, not what you know but something outside of your comfort zone. It can be something small like try a new class at the gym, learn a new recipe, start to write a story. I would say, as long as this is something that it's truly different from your routine and choices, go for it. This is a direct door for change and it can only start with you.

Are you willing to start now?

With love, joy and trust

Mindset Mentor, Motivational Speaker, Fear Expert and Head of GLCM Wellbeing Europe Communications at HSBC, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Mindset Mentor, Fear Expert and Motivational Speaker. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women entrepreneurs become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, overcoming their fears and progressing to the next level in their business. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
