1. From addiction to Author and Mentor with Shannon Mondor S4 EPS 13 Host Kim Lengling 28:42

Shannan Mondor underwent a profound transformation on August 17, 2019, when she resolved to break free from the grip of alcoholism and confront the lifelong pain and fear that had haunted her. Raised in an environment where she was constantly belittled and subjected to physical and mental abuse by a family member, Shannan internalized the negative messages that she was stupid, good for nothing, and would never amount to anything, leading to a lack of self-worth, depression, and a sense of loneliness.

Today, Shannan Mondor is a best-selling author of the book; How in the Hell Did I Get Here? Forever Changing the Genetic Blueprint, a podcast host, TEDx speaker, and Transformational Mentor.

To fit in and gain approval, Shannan became a people pleaser and allowed others to control her life, ultimately losing her true identity. Turning to alcohol as a coping mechanism, she found herself caught in a destructive cycle.

However, Shannan’s journey took a pivotal turn when she
realized that the negative identity she carried for five decades belonged to her abusers, and the generational cycle of addiction and damaging beliefs needed to be broken.

Motivated by a desire to provide a better life for her children and future generations, Shannan decided to challenge the normalized patterns of addiction, mental illness, and abuse that spanned four generations in her family. Recognizing that she held the power to effect change, she embarked on a path of self-discovery and growth.

Shannan’s journey led her to the profound realization that she had more to explore and learn about herself. Along the way, she felt a calling to share her experiences, both positive and negative, to help and teach others.
