Where Do Limiting Beliefs Around Money Come From?
WHERE DO LIMITING BELIEFS AROUND MONEY COME FROM
Women were brought up with a negative money mindset. This can be generationally transmitted.
Professor Steve Peters explains that the female tendency to conform and let the man deal with safeguarding the nest by how our primitive part of the brain works (=(The Chimp) operates. This is the part of the brain that contains all the natural drives and instincts (need for survival, food, sex, shelter) and has been passed on to us since the caveman. A risk taking female was much more at risk of getting killed in the jungle than the one who stayed close to the physically stronger male and let him make all of the decisions.
Our neural pathways are configured to remember and imprint the negative stuff MORE than the positive things that happen to us. Again ,this is primal. Registering the negative stuff kept us safe.
HOW DO WE CHANGE THEM?
