I decided one day that I had a choice. I could choose to move backwards into a deep, dark hole or I could Fierce Forward!
Hi, I am Ashley! I created Fierce Forward as a mantra/intention for myself to put a Fierce face on and to always take one step forward. While this mantra has been a tool in my Life and in my forward movement, I know with all my fierceness, that I have been the power behind what I have created in my Life.
My personal mission is to Empower people to move Fiercely Forward in their lives, to discover that they already have the power that they seek and that loving yourself is the most important job you have.
What I have come to learn about Life is that we are only given one of them while we are here on this Earth. Time stops for no one and I want to really LIVE IT!! To me, living my Life to the fullest means always moving forward (Fierce Forward), believing in myself and knowing that I am limitless (my Power) & to live from and for my heart (self love). It is my Purpose and my Passion in this Life to have been on a Journey to fully understanding, embracing and then living these beliefs and then helping others to feel this Joy I have found, in the way I have chosen to Live. If you are reading this now, there’s something that brought you here that you need to discover. Live with Intention! Everything begins with a seed. What seed will you plant next for YOU, for YOUR LIFE? I welcome you to explore Fierce Forward and to begin your forward movement, NOW.
Ashley Johns created a personal Mantra, began helping others Fierce Forward through the tools she discovered along the way and is living her Passion! This year, Ashley is getting her Certification in both Yoga & Goal Coaching.

Do you have any habits? yes! Each morning when I wake up, I stretch my arms long into Freedom Stretch and lay in bed for 5 minutes, creating my day in my mind. I focus on happy, positive, gratitude, flowing with what comes & abundance.

A new habit that is making a huge difference is, while I’m at the gym, not going on social media between exercises or during rest and being fully present in my me time.
