    Hi Donna, I absolutely love the analogy of being a true warrior! To Claim ones self is so important! Too many times people live in a state of reaction rather then in a state of pro-action. Empowering story by the way and I want to thank you for sharing it.

    Thanks again.

      Thank you Staphane, Usually the word warrior is a mental picture of a person fighting with a sword. But the real warrior lies within ourselves. That is all where the power starts.

    Hi Donna,

    I really enjoyed the message you shared in the video.

    I will admit when I first heard you mention you must be a warrior I was also thinking “chariots of fire”! I know, it just popped into my mind but I loved your explanation so thank you for that.

    What an important series as we head into the new year. In order to be true to yourself I think we all need to learn these lessons. That we need to overcome fear and what I’ve learned from this myself is that I’m the only one holding myself back. No one else so just get over it and do it anyway. It’s a scary place sometimes but it’s so much better on the other side.

    Appreciate this wonderful message and Donna, I wish you a very Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to continuing our blogging relationship. Best to you in the new year!

      You are absolutely correct when you say you are the only one holding yourself back. That is usually the essence of any situation. No one can hold us back from Anything unless it is by pure physical force. I am also happy that you answered your own question by saying “just get over it and do it anyway.” That’s the ticket!
      Getting out of our comfort zone is difficult, but there is a big exhale on the other side.

    great inspiring, positive video, once again. First of all, I love the reference to the movie Ben Hur. I always list that as one of my favorite movies in FB, YouTube, etc.

    One of the most important things I needed to hear and that we all need to hear is that we are only in control of ourselves. When friends or loved ones are sick and they absolutely refuse to seek any medical attention because of fear of doctors or whatever, there is nothing we can do but sit and watch them suffer. They don’t want advice. They don’t want help. They want their denial, and there is nothing you can do about that until they want to change. But like you said, in the meantime, trying to control someone you love, to help some you love who doesn’t want anyone’s help, only depletes your own power. when you look at all the successful people, past or present, that you’ve admired. You can see that they didn’t waste their energy or their power on people who didn’t want to graciously receive it.

    • Donna Merrill December 21, 2011 at 5:59 pm #

      You’ve said it Jim! I will offer my help and/or services to people who want it. It may sound harsh, but I don’t waste my time or their money when I see their repeated behavior doing the blame game or showing signs that they don’t really want help, but rather a sounding board.
      It is a balance, but If someone doesn’t want the help, I let them go.

    truly amazing and empowering lifestyle you have developed in such a short time. Your energy resinotes through these very pages.

    I realize that you sharing in this video tutorial was difficult at first. Yet, it has empowered you on your journey. Knowing the endless others viewing will feel all the positive energy and get thing done. Moving forward in the right attitude.

    Donna, your one of our great coaches and visionary in our industry. Your focus has and will continue to inspire others. I look forward in viewing your next post. Knowledge is power.

    P.S. Fear has no power unless you give it. There are no limitations and until one excepts this basic understanding. There will remain chaos in their lives. They will never accomplish success as only they can determine.

    Love your analogy Donna. You really made me think about the word “warrior” so I looked it up and what I found was – yes the first definition on the list was solder, but looking further the terms contributor, participant and provider are also included – really gives you something to think about! By the way, congratulations on having the courage to reclaim your power and escape from an abusive relationship. I’ve worked for years with Women Helping Women and our local shelter – so it’s not an easy thing to do, so it’s great that you are sharing your story.

      Hi Marquita, When I found my power years ago, I too worked in a shelter for women for a while. It is part of the cycle. You learn, you grow, you share. I continue to do so to this day.

    I’ve had to face my fears and let go of a lot of stuff in order to take a step forward in my life. Sometimes when you’re letting go you feel as though you’re losing a part of yourself. I guess you are, because fear is sometimes a big part of who we are.

    Once we build up enough confidence to let go, we gain so much back – so much power and flavour to our lives.

      Yes, Anne, we do lose part of ourselves. But that is a good thing! Sometimes that part is a negative behavior. An example of this is Enabling. I used to be an enabler. Yes! That meant I could be by an additive person’s side and make all the excuses in the world. Those excuses became toxic to me, and then I had to leave the situation. Go out and learn how to take that part of me …that behavior and turn it around.
      Not easy stuff my friend, but it can be done. Now that felt empty at the time, but I filled it with a positive.
      It does take time, but it works,
      Thanks for visiting Anne

    Hi Donna, I really enjoyed your video on what it means to be a warrior. Being a warrior helps you stop living your life in fear and makes you strong and resilient to all challenges you face in your life. Thanks for sharing your personal story. You having the strength to leave a bad situation was a huge step in helping you take your power back.If you feel afraid you should reach out to people who can help you get past the fear so that you can start living your best life. Thanks for your insights 🙂

      Thanks Shelly, I find it most effective to people when sharing a story. We all have Power…sometimes it takes a push from a situation to find it. Power comes in many ways and when a negative situation comes to you, you can ALWAYS turn it into a positive.
      Thanks for stopping by,

    Hi Donna,

    What an important topic and powerful video with an amazing real life example and life lesson.

    You stand 10 feet tall and you are bullet proof !!

    It is so important to face your fears in order to really live your life to the fullest and to be in control. We are in control of ourselves and our thoughts and if we think positive and empowering thoughts and practice affirmations and auto-suggestion techniques, your subconscious will provide you with the tools and give you the strength you need to gain the confidence to face those fears.

    Whatever the fear or concern is, there is a solution and remedy to ease or eliminate the fear and when you overcome a fear, you will feel liberated and empowered and gain the confidence to face the next fear or challenge.

    Don’t let fear paralyze you. Like you said…there is help out there and support that can assist in getting you through those times of fear and concern. Sometimes, you just have to step outside of your comfort zone and you might realize it wasn’t all that awful after all and you have claimed control of your life.

    Keep inspiring us,

    • Donna Merrill December 17, 2011 at 11:45 pm #

      What wise words Marc. Yes Fear is something we all have and must get over to achieve our goals in life. I ALWAYS tell my clients “Never react to fear” because if you do, you will be going down the wrong road. There are so many ways to overcome it. When one of my clients is repeating a behavior like this, I strongly suggest therapy. If it is some smaller concerns like “I’m afraid I won’t make any money on the internet.” I can counsel them through it.
      Fear does paralyze us. My goal is to give people the message that there is so much help out there, even free help.
      Unfortunately there are some people that will not take that step to help themselves and I see them stagnant in their lives. It is their choice! I’m a facilitator of giving them the many ways to overcome it.
      I thank you Marc

    Many years ago I took “Warrior Boot Camp” with Peak Potentials.

    It was an amazing experience, an experiential boot camp.

    I learned about letting go there and it has been so helpful. I also learned how to stand in my power. I love being a warrior.

    I am so glad I have those experiences to know how it feels and when I get all bent out of shape 🙂 it is easier to bring myself back.

    • Donna Merrill December 15, 2011 at 5:44 pm #

      Hi Carla, Isn’t it amazing how easy it really is to step into your power once you have the tools to do so. Letting go is so difficult to do sometimes because we rely on our left brain. But when we allow ourselves to do so, all is peaceful.
      Your “Warrior Boot Camp” sounds interesting. I am excited to see that you have used your “tools” that you have learned to bring yourself back. It is an ongoing process, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes part of YOU.
      Thanks for visiting,
