Daniel "Action" Collier
Daniel was born in Va. Beach Va. to former Hall of Famer and softball legend Danny Collier Sr. and His Mother Mae Collier. Mae' voice when she sang could literally make people come to tears of joy. Va Beach is know for many things including surfing, fishing, and being home to the legendary Navy Seals. Daniel grew up learning to be an outdoorsman learning skills and understanding nature from his father. Danny Sr. was known to be an expert hunter and loved being in the wild any chance he got. Everyone loved him and would ofter start off a sentence with "that crazy man once... fill in the blank." From the time Daniel was a just a kid his father had him on some sort of adventure. Be in deep sea fishing off the shores of Cape Hatteras to hunting wild game on Va.'s Eastern Shore and Back Bay.
Like his father Daniel found a love for sports at a young age and accelerated at baseball among other sports. His uncles had been wrestling champs and inspired Daniel to begin learning the sport. This later led him to the Martial Arts and other combat oriented arts. Daniel's youth was surrounded with friends, sports, academics, and adventure. It is these skills that he took with him onto college.
Daniel attended Radford University and obtained a degree in Business. From their he became the Master of a Martial Arts School and founded an art called "Empty Hands." Daniel said this about the art, " I use to study a lot of the teachings of Bruce Lee. What serious student doesn't? It wasn't his art that fascinated me so much but his insight into reality. He helped to open up my mind from being a follower of fixed traditions. Traditions that most people couldn't explain why they even followed. Bruce was right. So I took the reality of the ideas and moves that worked and through out the things that didn't. I once took three of my students to a tournament that was black belt only. They had only been training with me under the Empty Hands System for six to eight months. I gave them some black belts to tie around their waste and off we went. Two out of the three students I took won the fights and almost beat the crud out of the other opponents. It was the insights of Lee that partially led me to look at almost all other aspects of life for what they are and not what I was told they were." Daniel also was a Fireman, Shock Trauma Medic, Real Estate Investor, Personal Trainer, Founder of the Nutriforce Health System, and Lecturer and Author of The Masters of Destiny Series.
As far as his faith Daniel is what is considered a Messianic Jew. We asked Daniel why he considered himself this faith. "It's not difficult to understand if you have read the bible and have learned to let go of religious rhetoric. I guess the long and the short of it is, it's important to me. It's really the center of what life is all about. "
Over the years Daniel has surrounded himself with some of the worlds top leaders. "I'm really just an average guy who realized God gives us the power to be extraordinary. " You can find him with top athletes, entrepreneurs, and his circle of friends in the Navy Seals. "When you grow up with these guys, live with them, fight with them, love life with them, you learn to be both hard and compassionate. You develop a zeal and a never give up mentality. It is something that has got me through a lot of tough times, especially the loss of my father. "
Today you can find Daniel along with the entire team of Masters of Destiny, teaching and exciting the world with his messages about life, love, and God's Laws of Abundance. His friends say there is hardly a time he doesn't make them laugh or have something so profound to say it takes them a week for it to set in. My interview with him led me into a pleasant world of inspiration, and a serious desire to do more. To really Master my own Destiny and never live life ordinary but extraordinary. Mike Reed.
