Hi. If you want to displace the text inside or outside of the circle, as Mylenium said, adjust the baseline shift. If you want to flip the text inside the circle: Type > Type on a Path > Type on a Path Options... and check the flip checkmark. Or just drag inside the middle line in the circle.

With the circle selected go through Type>Type on a Path>Type on a Path Options to get the Type on a Path Options dialog. Click on "Flip" in the upper right corner and the text will now align with the inside of the circle.

Just note that once you flip type, you may have to adjust your type spacing, as type characters are spaced according to their baselines.

Check the left/ right edge settings, the path orientation and/ or move the letters inside by adjusting baseline shift in the character panel.
