ARE YOU AS HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL AS YOU WANT TO BE?
If you’re like too many people, the answer is no. You’ve conditioned yourself to pretend to be happy. When you meet someone who is a total stranger and they ask how you are, what do you say? “Fine,” right? Really? The truth is, your relationships with family, friends, work, money, and self-esteem aren’t what they should be. It feels like you’re going through the motions. That sparkle, that shine, that childlike joy you long to feel eludes you. Instead of being energized by purpose, you drag through the day wondering, Why don’t I feel happier?
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can create a life in which you thrive, not just survive. The Circle Blueprint by Jack Skeen, Greg Miller, and Aaron Hill—in conjunction with a scientifically validated psychometric self-assessment and a series of supplemental workbooks—helps you dig to the root of the problem and break the conscious and unconscious habits and patterns that hold you hostage to a life that isn’t working for you. It cuts through the noise and forces you to be honest about the changes you need to make.
Your Circle is a map of the choices you make every day—choices that shape the quality, satisfaction, and impact of your life. The good news is your Circle can be adjusted—expanded, narrowed, and balanced—to steer your life where you want it to go. You can define your Circle, master it, and create the life you want to live.
The Circle Blueprint System is simple, doable, and incredibly thought-provoking. Best of all, it’s not about starting a whole new life; it’s about reshaping the one you have to keep what’s working and adjust what’s holding you back.
An “okay” life isn’t good enough. It is your right to wake up every day saying, “Wow, my life is amazing!” Discover what it takes to radiate joy, power, and peace every moment of every day for the rest of your life. You have only one life and you don’t get your money back if it goes poorly. It is your right to thrive.
