Karyn De Mol is a Multi Award-winning Author, Freedom from Secret Eating Coach and Empowerment Expert releasing Women's Secret Fears stopping them from financial and physical success even if they are feeling overworked or burnout. Our values then need to be supported with positive beliefs to ensure we don't start to feel overworked or burnt out. Everybody has a past, and we may need to realize how it affects our behaviors and future. As a child, things are said or done that may be traumatic that we have to overcome as adults. For example, being told as a young child that you are 'Stupid' may be something you believe to be accurate as an adult that is limiting your success. Women connect emotions to an event because of our larger limbic system; we remember moments of the past when events have emotions attached to those events. Mindset shifts are required to change the perception of past traumatic events and see them with adult attitudes and wisdom, thereby limiting the impact of the memory. These mindset shifts must incorporate a woman's limbic system to ensure long-term changes.
