Finding your purpose is no easy task. There are times when some of us need help in finding what we are meant to do. Today, we hear from Kim Wilson, an international speaker, and entrepreneur about her endeavors to help people live a more purposeful life.
Polite On Society: Who is Kim Wilson?
Kim Wilson: Kim Wilson is a woman that grew up in a small town in South Carolina. She was born into poverty and raised by her grandmother who had little money.
Because her mom and dad left her and not to mention having to use the bathroom on a bucket because there wasn’t proper plumbing. that little girl experienced anxiety and depression. and feelings of unworthiness. Today I am a nurse the owner of a very successful healthcare agency, an international speaker, and a self-improvement expert.
POS: How would you explain the “Pail Experience” to someone who is unfamiliar with the term?
KW: The Pail Experience is a Psychological place of pain, disconnect, and loneliness. It’s a place where you just don’t feel like you. You feel as if something is missing. You don’t feel whole. It can come from childhood trauma. a bad relationship or anything that doesn’t make you feel like you.
POS: How did you get started on the speaker circuit?
KW: I got started on the speaker circuit because although I’m a nurse. I had the desire to want to impact others on a broader level when it comes to purpose and self-improvement.
POS: What in your opinion, is one of the major obstacles to a person truly stepping into their purpose?
KW: I feel one of the major obstacles is fear. It makes us think of the worst outcome for something that hasn’t happened yet. I have this thing I like to say, the fear that stands beside me guides me and the fear that tries to hold me molds me. I try to look at fear as that friend that pushes you to be your best.
POS: What is your approach to coaching your clients through difficult life transitions?
KW: I try to meet my clients where they are. When it comes to each individual we see things differently. it’s nothing wrong with that but I try to get to the root cause of what my client is feeling to be able to help them improve.
POS: Are there any events coming up that you want our readers to know about?
KW: I have an event that’s coming up called All Things Purpose on April 15th, 2023 in Atlanta, Ga. In that room, people will experience new possibilities, expand their thinking, and become unstoppable. I will show them how I beat the odds by using my 4-step process A.C.T.S. I hope to see you there. For more information visit www.thekimwilson.com
