“From Struggle to Success” The power within
There is no exact formula of success, but there is a power within us that can lead us to our most desire destination. We often don’t realize that we have it, but once we do we can conquer the world.
Carla Necole Williams is a great example. She transformed her fears into a successful business. She is an owner of Carla Necole Williams, LLC – Personal Development, Coaching and Training programs and services.
1. What are your idea/ business about? How the idea was born?
I help highly ambitious women remember the forgotten parts of them. My expertise is inner healing and I also help my clients in the areas of productivity, relationships and prosperity. My business evolved organically because initially I was trying to “fix” myself from having low self-esteem, hopelessness and a poverty mindset. While on my journey to self-love, I realized that all of my issues were somehow related to childhood traumatic experiences. I had to heal and let go of the fear and pain that I was allowing to affect my current situations. I mistakenly thought that the issues from my past were over and done because they had happened decades ago. I was wrong. I knew that I had to heal myself in order to create the life I wanted and deserved. As I started sharing my story, more and more women could relate. That’s when I decided to take my business in the direction of introducing women to themselves and their power within. I even wrote a book, “The Power Within: How to Heal, Love and Design the Life You Want” and it became an Amazon best-seller for 2 weeks! Now I help women become more confident and self-aware; understand and overcome their fears; and create leveraged and strategic roadmaps to achieve their biggest goals!
2. Tell me about yourself and your team?
I reside in Nashville, TN, with my 4-year old son. I’m a single mom. I have an MBA and I’m also a Law of Attraction Wealth Practitioner. I have six years of coaching experience working with amazing women who come to me with crippling self-doubt, and I’ve guided them in achieving remarkable success. My favorite area of helping clients is teaching them to empower themselves through healing so that they release pain from negative experiences and break through beliefs that are holding them back.
3. What are the main struggles that you have experienced?
My life challenges have been low self-esteem, which showed up in my life as depression, self-hatred and suicide attempts. I was also very afraid of life and living because I’ve survived great losses in my family. I also had to overcome poverty because I grew up in the projects and ghettos and despite accomplishing great things academically, and elevating out of that environment, I still had a “lack” mentality.
4. How did you solve your problems?
I healed my inner child. I realized that the cycles and patterns I kept seeing myself in were tied to what I saw, heard and experienced growing up. I realized that I was living my life based on the beliefs of others and not necessarily my own. That’s when I set out to rewrite my story by adopting beliefs that served me and where I what I wanted to be in life. I did this by challenging my critical thoughts and questioning everything I had been taught. I had to strip everything away and find my true self. This is when things started changing for me.
5. If you had a chance what would you do differently?
I believe that wherever we are in life at any given time is where we need to be to grow. So I wouldn’t do anything differently. If it were not for my past, I wouldn’t be able to relate to the women I relate to. If it wasn’t for my struggles, my business would not have been born. Everything works out for our good in the end. This truth keeps me going and gives me faith.
6. What was the best advice you got and what was the worst?
The best advice is to do only what makes me happy. That’s our true purpose in life. My worst advice was getting a job you can retire from.
7. What will be your advice to the other entrepreneurs?
Don’t believe the hype. Trust your instincts and take the next smallest step to where you want to be. You’ll save tons of money this way. Know that you are always on the right road because ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME.
