In Success from the Inside Out, corporate executive, entrepreneur, and preacher Nona Jones takes readers on a personal journey to discovering the difference between success and good success so that they can experience God's power to deliver them from even the deepest pain.
Success isn't good success unless it's success from the inside out. Many of us aspire to achieve position, wealth, and notability in the hopes that those things will erase the pain of the past. But as Nona Jones discovered, for people like her who have experienced trauma, success requires more than a changed mindset - it requires repairing a broken spirit. Nona was appointed to an executive role with a Fortune 100 company at only 23 years old. Since then, she has led award-winning initiatives in public affairs, brokered multi-million dollars business deals, addressed the United Nations, and championed juvenile justice and education policy reform in the halls of Congress - all under the age of 35.
Then in one of the largest wake-up moments of her life, Nona realized that her past battles were waging a present war. As a child, Nona experienced physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Though she tried to push away those memories, her childhood trauma continued to affect her emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically. She decided she didn't have to be a prisoner to the pain anymore. She opened herself to the possibility of succeeding after surviving.
Success from the Inside Out charts the course of Nona's breakthrough - a course that can also lead you out of the storms of your past or present. Through her own remarkable story and insights, Nona helps you:
