Marc Cordon- The Joy Revolution

Decide to Transform

Are you ready for a Joy Revolution? Yes, it's what it sounds like: a Joy Revolution! Because joy is in fact revolutionary. Join my special guest Marc Cordon and me for a fun and high-energy episode! Marc is a positive psychology coach and co-founder of the Joy revolution, as well as the host of The Golden Mic Podcast. I have had the good fortune of appearing as one of his guests (in fact we are both releasing our interviews with each other on the same day!) Like many of us, Marc has experienced his share of burnout. He did what society tells all of us to do, and he found himself doing "okay" yet still unhappy. He craved a way to do more than just be okay. He craved a Joy Revolution. Make no mistake: the decision to embrace Love is revolutionary. So is having the courage to sit with the hurt that inevitably arises when you choose it, and not to bypass it. The ego would do anything to preserve itself. It would have you not choose Love, and even if you did it would try to convince you not to go all in. Happily, Love (which encompasses Joy) is so strong that it shines away all our layers of falsehood and uncertainty. In short, it cuts right through the B.S. So, how does it feel to experience Joy, to bask in our Collective Effervescence? Ask Marc--he knows! --- Marc Cordon, MPH has appeared on national television and radio and has delivered two TEDx talks on positive psychology. He is the author of Beyond Resilient: The Coach's Guide to Ecstatic Growth. His show The Golden Mic Podcast is an interview show that takes a deep dive into extraordinary people who lead their own joy revolutions. He has also launched Tiny Little Classes, a solo podcast on growth and unlearning. Text MARC to 844-509-4293 for a free copy of Marc's book on positive psychology and growing your business!

The Thrilla in Manilla III - Marc Cordon

The Launchcast

Yes, you read that right. That's Manila, but with 2 L's...why? Simple, this interview is as sweet as vanilla and as imperfect as a misspelled word on a vocabulary test. It’s being billed as the greatest rematch of all time. The people knew how special their chemistry was when they sparred on a few episodes of The Golden Mic Live, but their first epic battle happened on the now LEGENDARY episode 200 of Golden Mic Live where Muscles Marinara unexpectedly went southpaw and left Manilla Ice knocked out cold on the mat. Then came The Thrilla II on The Golden Mic Podcast where Cordon delivered a turbo-boosted hadouken before delivering the fatality on Andriopoulos. Now it’s time to settle the score once and for all on the grandest stage of them all (not that one). The Launchcast presents Episode 117, The Thrilla in Manilla III… …and this one happened in PRIME TIME. Guest: Marc Cordon VS. Host: George Andriopoulos The Joy bros dive in to this interview punching but come out revolutionizing the idea behind purpose, leadership, and…you guessed it…joy. Leadership, business, life, and EXTRAORDINARY growth (on ordinary days). Another dose of these two and their The Joy Revolution is just what the world needs right now.

Can Joy Fuel The Revolution? Ask Marc Cordon.


In school growing up, Marc Cardon had been repeatedly bullied and mocked In school because teachers and students thought he looked “Native American.” So, it’s hardly surprising that when he first became engaged with social justice activism, he developed tactics rooted in anger and fear.When Marc was first exposed to positive psychology, he was skeptical. He knew that fear and anger had been effective strategies for him and for social movements in general to accomplish their goals. But where could positive emotions like joy fit into the picture? And could these positive emotions help fuel a social movement and the individuals who make it up? He enrolled in the Certificate in Positive Psychology Program offered by the Whole Being Institute to investigate where positive psychology can overlap with social justice.In this episode, Marc talks about: - The challenge in finding the right balance between positive and negative emotions in social justice work. - The value of positive emotions and rituals to building a sense of community, enabling individuals and movements to sustain themselves, especially when the work gets difficult. - How The Joy Revolution, the organization he co-founded, “teaches change-agents, luminaries, and other do-gooders how to create positive social impact and lasting change through an expanded experience of joy.”Resources:Videos:A Revolution of Joy / Marc Cordon / Speakers Who Dare NYC 2019. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbmdJjfJFMIHow to Have Extraordinary Growth on Ordinary Days | Marc Cordon | TEDxFarmingdale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkn31_553L8&t=369s Organizations:The Joy Revolution. https://joyrevolution.com/ Books:Beyond Resilient: The Coach's Guide to Ecstatic Growth. https://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Resilient-Coachs-Ecstatic-Growth-ebook/dp/B076JK4SBJAuthors/theories mentioned in the episode:Victor Frankl - Man’s Search for MeaningCharles Snyder, Hope TheoryCarol Dweck, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
