I Let My Procrastination Run The Show

Like Comment

I lost count of it Gorgeous.

I want to do something, for example, write a new article or pitch for a magazine.

Firstly, I start to create the piece in my mind, I begin to be inspired by what I read, and I feel that this article is taking form in my mind.

So far, so good!


As long as I have this idea in my mind, I feel that it would take 5 hours to create this article. The more I turn this narrative over and over again in my head, the more I enter into Overthinking land, and I convince myself that it would take forever to write this article.

But when I sit down at my desk and (finally) work on it, I realise that I wrote this article in less than 45 minutes.

So, what's happened? I let my overthinking and my procrastination run the show. However, if I had taken action immediately and made one draft, a second or a third, I would have written this article earlier.

Now, the one running my life is me; I recognise procrastination at light speed and release it with ease to move towards my intentions because I understand what's going on and can manage it elegantly.

I don't let Overwhelm hijack my day; I slow down and use my fav wellness practice to cool down my Overwhelm in 20 min or less.

I refuse to wallow in anxiety and let my worries lead my mindset and vibes. Instead, I acknowledge it and let it go.

Motivational Speaker, Mindset Mentor and Wellness Expert, 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 Motivational Speaker, a Mindset Mentor and a Wellbeing Expert. 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 to become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, master your wellbeing and mindset so that you become visible and confident like hell. 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. But there's more. Mindset is important but your wellbeing is primordial. Working on your mindset and wellbeing is the formula to create a life you love. Combining your head and heart in everything you do is what makes all the difference. The difference that you crave to create in your life. 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.
