Joy is beautiful and is something that you desire. Joy is what allows you to navigate sometimes heartbreaking life experiences. Explore a unique and heartwarming view of joy creation and how it can transform a life.
“Life is filled with detours and dead ends, trials and challenges of every kind. Each of us has likely had times when distress, anguish, and despair almost consumed us. Yet we are here to have joy.” said Russell M. Nelson.
My Dream: To spread joy all over the planet and create health, abundance and peace for every human being
The Joy Circle™ is a concept to help others understand their important elements. For me, and many others, Joy starts with a spark of faith. A hope that there is something better in life than suffering at any level. That spark of faith is all that is needed to take the first step. That spark of faith will remove skepticism and allow you to see an opportunity to improve your life. For most that improvement is in their health.
Step One: Become Your Most Outstanding Self | Physically (Health)
There is a health crisis in America. For me, I was obese and first wanted to lose some weight. I’m not alone either because 80% of Americans are overweight and 37% are obese. Obesity among Non-Hispanic blacks have the highest age-adjusted rates of obesity (48.1%) followed by Hispanics (42.5%). According to the Center for Disease Control, “Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.” These health issues are really lifestyle issues and are “preventable.” Medical costs are $1,429 a year higher for obese Americans. (The data can be found here.)
My dad died from cancer and I didn’t want that to happen to me. On The Joy Circle™ program I was able to permanently release 50 lbs in 2006 and I’ve kept it off since! I had the most amazing transformation and I went from being semi-depressed to being over Joyed. I was able to complete my first Ironman triathlon only 14 months after starting on this journey!
In step one of my program I address overcoming several causes of ill health by;
- Removal of toxicity,
- Flood the body with minerals, vitamins, amino and fatty acids,
- Address stress with adaptogens,
- Slowing down the aging process by supporting telomere health,
- Encourage body movement in the form of exercise, and
- Getting enough rest and sleep.
I’ve a unique program to help you retool your thinking and stick to a plan. It’s called Healthy Mind & Body and the best part it’s free for those that create an account with our program vendor.
The benefits of becoming the best version of yourself physically are:
- Abundant energy,
- Unrestricted movement,
- Ability to recover from strenuous activity,
- Improved brain function and mental clarity,
- You feel good,
- You look your best with composition, more lean muscle, great skin and hair, and
You naturally will want to share your joy with others. Others will notice your new countenance and almost always ask, “What are you doing?” They will notice your joy which is really what they want in their life too. Being trapped in a body that is not the best version of yourself can be restricting and disheartening. Having the best version of your own body is liberating!
With these benefits the next natural step is to become your best financially.
Step Two: Become Your Most Outstanding Self | Financially (Abundance)
I know for a fact that the creation of wealth, cash flow and income is in direct correlation to your development as a leader and person. Of course, being your best physically is one of the most important human development functions you can have and it’s why we start there in step one. Other areas of personal development are learning principles that govern the creation of happiness, wealth and joy. There is a spiritual aspect that needs to develop as well. The better and more well rounded you are as a person the more these wealth principles will work in your life to bring you abundance as you practice the principle of the Law of Receiving which simply is to receive you first must give.
Your renewed energy alone will help you be more active in the creation of income because you can work longer and with improve brain function, work smarter. Naturally you’ll be able to serve more people. These attributes will increase your financial situation.
Where the real financial improvement takes place is in the sharing and serving others to become their best version of them self too. In my model, as you share your physical improvement methods, you can be financially rewarded. You’ll be spreading your joy with others who will now be able, like you did in step one, earn the same benefits.
As you tap into the new economy, wealth is generated by serving others first. As each of these people begin to share their step one results with others, more and more joy is spread. It catches on fast too as the effects of the circle complete it’s revolution for each person who enters.
As you learn our proven John Maxwell leadership skills to go with your goal of helping others gain joy, you’ll begin to proactively help more and more people lead joyful lives because they are blessed with the same step one and two results as you. You gain influence with others because you are more influential. The more influence you have the more opportunities you have to create wealth.
Leadership is really service. Leadership will help you feel you’re living a life of significance. In your service you’ll be contributing to individuals and have more opportunities to contribute to larger causes with your time and financial resources.
As you begin to move closer to the best version of yourself financially, you’ll have more resources and you’ll have more time to spend in the one-on-one or the one-on-many compassionate service opportunities. This leads to step three; compassion.
Step Three: Spread Joy to Others to Make and Impact in Your World | Peace (Compassion)
The attribute that was the most fulfilling to me was learning compassion. As I progressed with becoming the best version of myself, I learned compassion almost for the very first time. With my health being superb and now having a measure of financial freedom with time and money I found myself wanting more joy and I found it by serving others and making better contributions to society. I learned to walk in other’s shoes. I must admit, before this I was at times judgmental. Now though, I have no need to do that because I feel equally comfortable around a CEO of a major corporation and a beautiful homeless person. I regularly talk to homeless individuals whom are reaching out for connection (although most people think they are begging). I find their stories are no different than mine. I cry with others a lot now as they share their stories and suffering with me.
My relationships with my own family has drastically improved. Fatherhood for me to my four children and six grandchildren is one of the most important roles in my life.
With compassion comes deep connections with others. No longer do I have to pretend to be someone I’m not. I embrace who I really am and have learned that being vulnerable is the key to learning compassion.
My relationships are way better! Those I help who are exploring step one are more inclined to be open to a change in their mind set. This alone has expanded The Joy Circle™. I’m serving others in my church’s addiction recovery program and I feel I’m making a difference in their lives.
Others whom I’ve mentored and taught leadership skills and principles have learned deeper compassion and their circle is growing as well.
The process never stops. There are no destinations to reach. There is only a lifestyle of service, health and freedom. The bigger your lifestyle, the bigger The Joy Circle™ you helped create.

I’ve seen how successful participants in our company have expanded their circle from just them as 1, to over 200,000 people! That’s what health, leadership and service can do! Currently my circle has expanded to over 13,500!
