Wonder Woman and Embracing Your Inner Warrior By Cynthia Vespia

Wonder Woman is the representation of strength, beauty, and justice for millions of people around the world and has been since her inception. There’s been many variations of Wonder Woman in comics, movies, and television but one thing that’s never changed is her popularity.

Wonder Woman is an icon.


What makes her so beloved is her warrior spirit with an unwavering sense of personal integrity. With Gal Gadot as the latest incarnation on the big screen Wonder Woman now has a new generation of fans that adore her. Young women, young girls…hell young boys have a hero they can look up to.


Wonder Woman is defining a new generation.


When I was competing in fitness shows my coach at the time told me I was a warrior. Having that state of mind helped me to hone in on the confidence I needed to perform to the best of my ability.


Wonder Woman is a warrior.


It says so in her title. She’s a warrior Amazon from the island of Themyscera. Her attributes back up that title: strength both inside and out; stature; confidence; and a clarity of who she is.

So how can you tap into your own warrior spirit?

  • Physical Strength – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, physical strength and wellness is the cornerstone to the rest of your life. If you don’t have a good base which is your health, it throws the rest of your journey off balance. Physical strength is not musculature alone. It’s the ability to control your own body whether in muscle strength, endurance, and movement. Being able to control your body and know the breadth of your abilities will translate to the other points of owning your warrior spirit.


  • Inner Strength – Inner strength takes time to develop. It’s the life battles you go through that build up scar tissue and an innate ability to know you faced a challenge and conquered it. Stepping out of your comfort zone and facing your fears is a way to build the inner strength needed to face your day like a true warrior.


  • Confidence – Don’t confuse conceit with confidence. Conceit is an arrogance in abilities you may or may not have and it’s not an attractive quality. Confidence is in the quiet knowledge that you know who you are and what you can achieve. It’s the person who walks in a room with their head held high because they know the value they can contribute. Believe it or not, building confidence can start in the weight room. While you build your physical strength, your confidence grows with it. Small accomplishments in one area can build into bigger goals achieved and that’s the way confidence is built.


  • Clarity of Purpose – We each have our own purpose on this earth. The way we spend our time reflects our goals and our own sense of self. What is your why? Wonder Woman’s “why” and her reason for being is as a protector of those who cannot protect themselves. She fights for justice and never wavers from it. Developing an idea of what you’re after in life and why it’s important to you will give you a vision for your life and a battle plan your warrior can follow.


Using Wonder Woman, or any other warrior you admire, to motivate you towards your goals helps to put things into perspective.
