Summary

In Success from the Inside Out, corporate executive and leadership speaker Nona Jones takes you on a personal journey to discovering the difference between success that empties and success that fills.

Many of us aspire to achieve position, wealth, and notability in the hopes that those things will erase the pain of the past. But for those like Nona Jones who have experienced trauma, success requires more than a changed mind-set - 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 multimillion-dollar 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. Though she tried to push away the memories, her childhood trauma continued to affect her emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically - until she made a pivotal decision.

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:

  • Claim victory at the place where the defeat happened
  • Recognize ways you use work to cover up inward brokenness
  • Still the voices in your head that say you aren't good enough
  • Choose not just empty success but fulfilling success
  • Map your mile markers toward your biggest goals
  • Push through from brokenness to breakthrough

As Nona writes, "I've discovered that the only thing stronger than the power trauma has to change you is the power you reclaim when you acknowledge its effect on you." Success from the Inside Out is an empowering guide to finding healing from the past so you can move with freedom and hope into the future.

This book is amazing

I was truly blessed by this book, it captivated me inspired me and broke me all with the help of the Holy Spirit. Nona’s book has the anointing all over it, it can transform your life if you let it.

I was humbled and grateful that someone had the courage to share their story to help build and inspire those who have walked in similar shoes.

I stumbled on this book by divine accident and never before has a book touched me so deeply. I had to pray thank you God for Nona.

Continue to let your light shine and thank you very much for helping me by speaking life into my life.

Thank you
Jade

Great lessons taught

I found this book incredibly helpful to me in understanding some of the decisions I’ve made in my past due to trauma. I particularly appreciate the vulnerability with which Nona shares her story and I’m recommending it to friends. I’ve learnt a lot from it and I know all those that read it will too! Thank you Nona, you are goals!!

Permission Given

Nona Jones in this book gives permission to everyone with a past to be at their best and live in the truth God has spoken over them in the bible. I feel so empowered and renewed throughout her words. Her honesty is beautiful and her victory is our victory, I feel like she shared a very wonderful part of herself, so that us as listeners will have the courage to revisit the undesirable places in ourselves and discover the purpose. I will be reading this book again!

This book was answered prayer. Beyond motivating, it was transparent and honest. The scripture references fit each instance. I learned so much about myself and my purpose. Thanks Nona!

Nona Jones, THANK YOU!

I hope to have the opportunity to one day meet you, but if I don't I feel like I already know you. You are an amazing God-sister to me because you brought out so many things in me through reading your story and this is how I will always see you. You have given me courage to move on in my life-time dream at the age of 66; that of a life coach. I know God has given me the ability yet I have played with the idea for so long and have lost so much time. That's ok because I believe what God has called me to do, He will make room for His glory to be revealed even if it is just 11 hours. 😊
I can't wait to see you at Pastor John Hannah's One Conference, although I'll be virtual!

Success from the inside Out

Absolutely Incredible.
I was so moved by your story that I couldn’t wait to share it with my daughter. What a mighty God we serve.
To go forward after all that’s occurred in your home — only God. Only God.
I congratulate you. Thank you for the courage it took to share. God used you far more than you know today. And for all of us, young and older, THANK YOU and THANK JESUS. 💞

Simply Wonderful

This book from beginning to end was such a great read. This is actually the first book I’ve listened to in its entirety. The story of Nona’s life, success and failure read in her own voice was captivating. I couldn’t stop listening to it. I appreciate Nona’s truth and transparency shared in this book. Kudos to Mrs. Nona Jones! This is an Excellent book.

A heartfelt, sometimes difficult to hear read that will speak to your heart - if you’ll let it

Nona’s honest, heart wrenching beginnings was so hard to listen to but hearing about her lessons and growth through her life to now is inspiring for anyone. She audibly delivers her written words with emotion and passion. There are so many nuggets of wisdom throughout the book that I’m going to read it again (in printed form) so I can make notes to remember again and again. This one is worth the credit.

Phenomenal!!

I will be sharing this book with every young woman I know. Nona story is all too familiar, but the way she gives hope isn’t like anything I’ve heard or read. I think every young girl (inside us) who’s been abused one way or another should read/listen to this book. Nona reminds us we aren’t alone while giving us faith that everything will come together for our good in the end!!
