By Wendy Olson This is a must-read for anyone facing adversity or challenges in their life, small or large. The author opens her heart and tells the reader her gut-wrenching story of abuse in such an honest way, that you immediately feel you know her. Her desperation, struggles, and triumphs become yours. I have read many books that talk about and attempt to teach the reader ways to overcome adversity and challenges and come out stronger. Self-improvement, and changing the path of your own life can seem a complicated task. The author of this book breaks it down and simplifies it, making it workable, 5 minutes at a time; proving small steps do lead to big transformations. The author provides a unique tool to use methods that we know and may already have tried, such as positive self-talk, to help the reader overcome challenges in a new way. Whether you are new to self-exploration and improvement, or well-read on the subject, this is a book you need to read. And while the author uses her own story of overcoming an abusive relationship, her process is applicable to all struggles. Depression, weight loss, stuck in a dead-end job, divorce, even chronic pain, no matter the challenge, this author shows that getting through it and coming out the other end is possible 5 minutes at a time. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. A must read for anyone dealing with adversity of some kind.@ By Porter Metaphorically speaking, I could relate to Carolyn's mental hardships and the everyday struggles she experienced with her daughter's birth father. While I did not necessarily go through a "physically abusive" relationship, I did have a prior relationship which continually led me down a path of substance abuse and resulted in becoming a father at age 19.We tend to find ourselves struggling to get out of the "vicious circle" - whether that be be relationships, substance abuse or other bad habits - as it's "easier" to stay the course. And that's where we fail to see the faults in our own actions. We don't act.Carolyn's simple FEIRCE process can provide anyone having a hard time of where to start and knowing the next step. She verbally reaches out her hand to help you in need of overcoming that adversity and allowing you to stay focused on the positivity of reaching that goal. 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. How will you use your next five minutes? By B. Ebling In the book, F.I.E.R.C.E., is more than just a title. It is a multi-layered tool the author walks the reader through using by demonstrating how it was used in her life. As I read more about the author's journey, I really appreciated her insight and direction in a more meaningful way since I knew she walked the same road."We can only ask ourselves to be better than we were the day before. The next five minutes are a new five minutes that belong to no one else but you. How will you use your next five minutes?" See all 35 customer reviews...
In her book, F.I.E.R.C.E.,author Carolyn Colleen powerfully shares a personal story that is simultaneously riveting and heartbreaking. To come out on the other side of her experience smiling, happy, a great parent and spouse, educated, and fulfilled is nothing short of amazing. She has graciously shared with us, her readers,her personal model of resilience, and how one can approach becoming resilient one step at a time. For those, like Carolyn, with childhood abuse histories, there is no need to try to answer the question she was often asked, "Why didn't you leave?" But for others, whose lives were spared the horrific nature of childhood abuse, the answer is relatively simple: She couldn't. Leaving has nothing to do with an unlocked door, access to car keys, or even someone who would take her and Eve in.Carolyn was bound by a powerful, unimaginable prison that someone else created.It left her powerless. When one is powerless, one cannot leave. That's why the pages devoted to what happened to her during the years she was abused create an accurate and, for her, unchangeable scenario, until that moment of clarity when hope appeared. Carolyn had several people who deeply cared about her, and those few relationships were enough.Relationships are life-changing. Being in relationship with someone who truly cares, someone we can trust beyond any doubt, can eventually lead us from darkness to light. That's what this book is about. I suspect you will not be able to put it down until you learn what F.I.E.R.C.E. meant for Carolyn and what it can mean for you, too, or for someone in your life who might benefit from knowing her story.

We can tend to that fire and watch it burn bright, or we can let life's challenges and negativity dull the flame. Carolyn Colleen will take you on a dark journey through the perils of abuse. The quiet pain and suffering so many have felt in their own lives, in similar circumstances or in different, but equally challenging, conditions.Whatever your struggles are or have been, Carolyn gives voice to a story of survival. Carolyn's inspirational story sheds light on practical tips that help transform every day life in the face of adversity. Sometimes life can feel suffocating; taking the time to breathe, set goals, think positively, face fears, find courage and take action can make all the difference to feed the flame that gleams goodness in our lives. Perhaps one aspect or all will resonate with you. I am struck with a feeling of awe for Carolyn's ability to find the words to take us on this deeply personal journey. She gives transparency to challenges while leading us on her path toward redemption, healing and ultimately finding a better tomorrow. Her passion for the well being of others shines through and warms the soul. For this is a story that can truly make a difference in the lives of others. This is a read that will likely leave you a changed person; changed for the better, with hope for a brighter tomorrow.

She describes herself as a FIERCE mother of three, and a loving wife to her doting husband. Out of sheer necessity Carolyn developed the F.I.E.R.C.E. 5 method, which helped her grow from a downtrodden, scared and ragged victim,standing in a food line at the Salvation Army, to the confident and successful person she is today, living a happy life she never realized she deserved. Encouraged to write a book about her experiences, Carolyn took up the challenge. Now, with it completed, she hopes that through sharing her story she will provide others with the hope, resources and will power needed, so that they too can live the life they deserve.
