The fundamentals are, number one, your life has a purpose. Number two, when you lead a purpose-driven life, you can go MAD. In this case, MAD is a wonderful acronym that stands for Make A Difference. You lead a purpose-driven life. You make a difference in life. Number three is to unlock the secrets and the power of everyday words and terms. A simple example, right now, we’re being carried all over the world. There are, at this moment, over 349,617 people reading and being carried over this fantastic, amazing mythical mystical platform called the internet.

If you ask anybody, what does WWW stand for? They’ll tell you it has to do with the internet and factually speaking is correct, but in our world, the world of the positive, purposeful, powerful and pleasant, WWW stands for What a Wonderful World and what is a word. Thank you to Louis Armstrong for enabling that song to go viral and touch not tens of millions or hundreds of millions or billions of people around the planet.

The purpose of all as you remember is that you tuned in to the show because you know in this show, the result of you listening to the advice that’s going to be given to you from these amazing persons that you’re going be shared with is that you will be happier, healthier, and wealthier. Who doesn’t want that? Everybody. That’s why you tuned in to the show. Everything you want to know about our guests, by the way, you can find at www.BarryShore.com. You don’t have to write anything down. You don’t have to write about his website and things like that.

Go to BarryShore.com. All the information will be there. Lean in, and all of this beautiful transformative information flows through, around and in you. You can share this with at least five people. It will have over a million and a half people sharing these great, wonderful ideas. Remember, all of this happens because of one word. Let’s talk about the story. Imagine the following, standing up in the morning, hale and hearty, able to leap tall buildings and that evening in the hospital completely and totally paralyzed. That’s the story of Barry Shore.

Thank God we have over 325,000 people that come back every single week. You know the story, and you’re always inviting your friends that why we have now more than 350,000 people reading. Imagine that standing up in the morning, Halen Hardy in the evening, completely, totally paralyzed and became a quadriplegic. It’s not from a car accident or a spinal injury. It was a rare disease I never heard of the day before, and now I’m completely, totally paralyzed, 144 days in the hospital.

I was at a hospital bed in my own home for two years. I couldn’t turn it over by myself. I was in a wheelchair for four years. I have braces on both my legs, hips, ankles and that was progress. Thank God now, I’m able to be vertical and ambulatory with the help of a 7-foot walking wand made for me by a Zen master. I still can’t walk upstairs by myself. I can’t walk up a curb by myself. I have help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but you hear my voice, positive, purposeful, powerful and pleasant, all because of one word. That word is SMILE. It’s an acronym.

Remember, we unlock the power in the sequence, everyday words and terms. SMILE is an acronym that stands for Seeing Miracles In Life Every day. I was speaking to an audience of about 5,000 plus people and, God willing, be able to do that again very soon. We’ll go back in and talk to real people. I tell the story of Barry Shore. I tell about smile and people raise their hands and say, “Barry Shore, I’ve been up for hours. I haven’t seen any miracles.” I asked them, “Are you here? Can you hear, see, stand, walk, give water to drink, food, a place to sleep, family, friends? Every single one of those is a miracle.” What’s a simple proof? Simple proof, one million people didn’t get up this morning. Do you know why? They died. You didn’t.

Our natural ability is to soar, to come out, and to find joy, but we're scared out of our minds to do so. Click To Tweet

By definition, if you’re reading this, you didn’t. Therefore, you have an obligation to celebrate life to the full. I’ll say a quick story, though. My niece comes over to me and she says, “Uncle Barry, can we spell smile, S-M-I-E-L?” I thought about it. It sounds the same. Why not? She says, “Because then it will stand for Seeing Miracles In Everyday Life” and in the mouth of babes. What was she doing? She was creating the world she wants to live in. CREATE is a wonderful acronym that stands for Causing Rethinking Enabling All To Excel because it’s all here. It’s called neuro-linguistic programming. You can be that which you want to be. Our guest is going to help you be the one person that you want to be because when you’re the best you, you make the world a better place.

We need you. I do have to warn you in advance, everybody, that your humble host does use a lot of four-letter words. I even use the four-letter FU word, and I do it because of the shock value and fun. Now the four-letter words that we use are because we live in a world of positive, purposeful, powerful, and pleasant with love, hope, grow, free, gift, pray, play, swim, four-letter words. The four-letter FU word is “FUNN,” but right away, people were saying, “Barry Shore, fun is spelled with three letters.” Not in our world, the world of powerful, purposeful, powerful, and pleasant.

After the show, when you see your family and friends, have a smile on your face and twinkle in your eye. You point your finger and say, “F-U everybody.” Remember to add N and N right away and they’ll say, “What are you talking about? Where’d you get that?” You say, “I listened to Barry Shore, the Joy of Living, and he must’ve taught the world to F-U-N-N.” Before we bring on our amazing guest, and it’s truly going to be a fun session, I’m going to urge everybody to do the following. I want you to use the two most powerful words in the English language three times a day from now on to the rest of your life. If you use these two most powerful words in the English language, you’re going to make a difference for you, your family, your friends, and all living beings. These two words are, “Thank you.”

THANK stands for To Harmonize And Network Kindness. KIND stands for Keep Inspiring Noble Deeds. The Dalai Lama has been quoted as saying in writings, “Be kind whenever possible.” It’s always possible, he says. Imagine we’re going back into our coffee shops and you’re going to order your fancy latte for $5. You go in, you order and you sit down. Somebody brings it to you, you say, “Thank you.” You go into the coffee shop. You order your fancy latte for $5. You sit down. A few minutes go by and nobody brings it to you. You go to the counter and they say, “I’m sorry, we’re busy. We’ll bring right to you.” You sit down a few more minutes while you still said, “Thank you.”

You’re walking out of the coffee shop and it’s raining out. Somebody holds the door open for you, you say, “Thank you.” You are walking out of the coffee shop. It’s raining out. Somebody slams the door on you, you say, “Thank you.” You’re in traffic. You’re late for an appointment. Somebody cuts you off, you say, “Thank you.” In the middle of the night, you stub on your toe and it hurts. You say, “Thank you.” To Harmonize And Network Kindness. Keep Inspiring Noble Deeds and I can’t think of anybody that I can think of that inspires noble deeds that I want to share you with than Josh Cary. Josh, please say hello to 351,270 people around the world.

Ambassador, what an entrance. What a dialogue. I’ve learned more from you in these several minutes than I’ve learned in high school and college combined. No joke. Thank you for doing what you do for educating, leading and showing us how it’s done. We could only all be so lucky to grab a portion of who you are, what you do and what you have to give. I’m honored, thrilled, happy and joyous to be right here in this very moment. Thank you.

Thank you. I must say, Josh is an experienced theater man. He was able to read what my sainted mother has sent down to him from heaven perfectly. You expressed it well. Thank you for doing that. I wanted to give a brief introduction. Time is short. I want Josh to give his full being to all of you reading. Remember, they care about you. That’s why they tuned in, Josh. It’s not about you. It’s not about me. It’s about you. He is the Cofounder of PodMax. He’s the host of The Hidden Entrepreneur Show, which is a great show. He is a mentor and a coach for people who want to learn about on-air brands.

He’s an entrepreneur. He has many years, not of experience, but of experience layered on because he entered the theater at the age of nineteen, emerged from that as a full-fledge thespian. He went into the ability to share with others. That’s what we’re going to talk about. We’re going to go to something right away because we talked about the FU word and that’s something that you work with a lot, Josh. I know you don’t say it in public, but he has something called F That Noise. I assume that F stands for fun, but you’re going to tell us and unpack it and talk to us about what is F That Noise and why should anybody be listening to noise?

JOL Josh Cary | Hidden Entrepreneur

Hidden Entrepreneur: When you sit with your emotions, you can start to see what’s causing it to arise in your body.

 

As we know, noise is a variety of things. For me, it was all of that self-talk in my head that kept me down and back. You referenced The Hidden Entrepreneur. I’ll connect the dots for you. I am The Hidden Entrepreneur now because I spent many years of my life hiding. I would show up in every situation, hiding all of my talents, all of my skill, ability. Everything that I was capable of doing would remain hidden. Why? A few reasons, I didn’t want to rock the boat. I didn’t want to have you not like me. I was out desperately seeking approval. I wanted validation and I thought this was the way to get it.

You might know that I learned early on that if somebody displays some worth, value, something great, where somebody could say, “That’s good. Good job, man,” that might instill a sense of insecurity in somebody else who feels invalidated in their own world. What I realized can happen is if I do something valuable, I might shine a light on your insecurities, make you feel uncomfortable, and you might retaliate against me. I got that early on. Back in those days, I didn’t have enough strength, power, and courage to stand up for myself, so I didn’t.

I thought, “I’m going to play small my whole life and hope I could find validation and there’ll be one person out in this magnificent world that will still see something great in me and give me the permission and the protection. Even hearing myself say it, I’m so thankful to have gotten myself out of this place for decades of that seeking this external validation, struggling, a lot of anger, depression, confusion. It wasn’t good. F That Noise became my mantra for what I wound up doing, how to quiet all that noise in our head. I see you’re big on acronyms. That’s what NOISE is. It’s an acronym for how you can take yourself from where you are to where you need to be in a more joyous life. If you want me to break down each one, I’m happy to do so.

That’s number one. Number two, we are joyful and triumphant that you’re here sharing with us because you have delineated the universal experience in a matter of a few minutes. Unfortunately, most people are raised unwittingly by parents, other friends, sometimes even friends who mean well, but usually they don’t. They mean. They left off the well. In my world, people ask me all the time, “Barry Shore, is there anything that you don’t like?” I’m in love, living on vibrant energy and we want to hear noise. We want to hear the acronym for noise. I say, “I hate mean people.” It doesn’t work, but I’m going to give you one thing. I want you to go deep dive into noise because we’re going to go immerse ourselves in it so we can emerge from it and soar.

You mentioned self-talk. We won’t go into it long because this is what I do, but self-talk to me, and you’ll see it in the book that you have and that 10,000 people are now reading and using called The JOY of LIVING: How to Slay Stress and Be Happy. It’s this remarkable acronym that stands for the following. Self-taught stands for that you are a soul experiencing life fully, always teaching love and kindness to yourself, but you have to learn how to do that for us. The way we got to learn to do that is by NOISE. Josh, start walking us through please.

F That Noise, the letters all stand for a different thing that I’ll outline that all have to do with your emotions. This is what it’s about, getting a grasp on your emotions. Much of what we do day in and day out is a habitual, often unconscious or subconscious reaction to something. We wake up. We repeat the same set of emotions without even realizing it. While we realize, “Why am I so angry?” It’s already happened. You feel like you can’t do anything about it. The cycle continues. What I’ve learned to do is to understand what’s happening, what’s been happening and what needs to happen to take myself successfully to the other side. When I’m going through all this realize that it has to do with emotion. The first thing I need you to do is think about the one predominant emotion that usually identifies your day.

We have a handful, but which one would you say? For me, there was a lot of anger. For you, it could be confusion, jealousy, despair, loneliness. Whatever it is, identify that one emotion. Now we go to the end. The first is you need to name the emotion. What is it? Identify it. Get comfortable with it. Call it by name, say hello to it, call it out. What is it? Now we can start to go through the process. You’ve now named it. Congratulations. It’s time for you to own the emotion. Guess what? It’s yours. Congratulations. It’s a brand-new emotion. It’s yours alone.

Do you know what that does? This gives you the power and the ability. This allows you to take responsibility for every single thing that has happened and is happening in your life, which means you can change it, so own that emotion. You are going to identify with it. You’re going to take it on. For a moment, you’re going to say, “I am. I am angry, in despair, jealous, confused, lonely.” Whatever it is, own and identify that emotion. I am. You start to feel it. The reason for this is when we go over to the S, this doesn’t have to be a month-long project or even weeks. Whatever it is, you want to now sit with the emotion.

You can make choices, or you can make excuses. Click To Tweet

This means you are going to sit with it, allow it, feel it, accept it in because now you’re going to start to identify when does this emotion happen? When does it arise and come into your life? Remember what I said, “So much of our day is habitual.” We experienced so many of the same emotions without even realizing it, giving it a second thought, we tune in and then we’re like, “I’m so angry, annoyed, upset.” We don’t even realize how or when it happened, but we realize it’s been stewing and happening. When you sit with it, you can start to see what’s causing it to arise in your body. Is it around a certain time of day, person, topic, theme, something? What is causing it? It’s a sense of self-awareness.

With that high note, as we’re sitting there at the edge of our seats, waiting for the E to come into existence, I’d like to say two things. Josh is such a wondrous giving being, but you gave me such insight, Josh. You use the word habitual, and now people say it all over the world. I never realized that the middle part of habitual is what you’re talking about. It’s a bitch. Habitual, get rid of that. What came to me right away was that great song by The Temptations. I second that emotion. Josh, what does E stand for?

E is the punchline of the entire thing. Once all these other elements are put into place, you will graduate seamlessly to the E, which is you will evolve into the person that you have always been capable of being. It’s not changing, becoming, adjusting. You’ve always been capable of this person. You will miraculously evolve right into that person as I have done. “The proof is in the pudding,” as they say. It’s all possible.

The proof is in the butterfly because that’s who you are. The point is that what you discussed is that the natural evolution that we all see. Everybody knows what a caterpillar is. The caterpillar is fuzzy, but it’s not that nice. It crawls around and you can squish it. That’s not who you are. Who you are is the butterfly inside, that beautiful monarch with flapping wings that makes a difference. Everybody looks at it and says, “That’s who you are.” You will evolve naturally when you choose Josh’s program. The genius of the program is it works. You got to be two things. One other thing here, RWA. If you rearrange those letters, you’ll think, “war.” You could all say, “Raw,” but he’s telling us to be ready, willing and able. Josh, tell us about ready, willing and able.

Many years doing a lot of work to hide, that is the work. You have to work on that because our natural ability is to soar, come out, find the joy, but we’re scared out of our minds to do so. I’ve been nothing but scared to do that. When I made these conscious efforts to say, “I’m better than this. I’m more capable than this. I’ve always been capable of this,” it’s all a choice. What we’re talking about here is being ready, willing, and able is nothing more than an ability and an awareness to make choices. You can make choices or excuses. You have to know that whatever you do, whatever is happening, is a choice.

Some people resist that, “I don’t know, they did this, I couldn’t, I want it but,” excuses. You have a choice in every single moment literally in your life. Being ready, willing, and able is simply the acknowledgment and the awareness that the power and control are within you. It’s your responsibility. That’s how your world goes around. Everything on the outside world that we experience is nothing more than the reflection of what is going on the inside. If you want anything to change on the outside, you must first begin on the inside. Be ready, willing, able to acknowledge, accept and be aware, AAA for you right there, that it is your choice to do, have, be.

To be or not to be, that is the question, Josh. Since you are a thespian, you know the words. Let’s take a look at something that Josh has been articulating so well. It’s important that you learn about what he has to offer. It’s key. What he’s mentioning are the six most important words that any human being could ever learn, utilize, internalize and leverage. In my book, The JOY of LIVING, and these six words are choice, not chance, determines your destiny. I’ll give you a classic example if I may, Josh, from my own life.

After 144 days in the hospital, they’re now discharging me because insurance won’t pay anymore. The bill is over $1 million. It’s money. Bringing me home, I’m a quad, and they have to do something special in my house, a special hospital bed and such like that. As I’m leaving, the doctors, in their finite, very close wisdom, say to me, “Mr. Shore, you’re a quadriplegic. You probably can never walk again, but we have certain things that we can help you with and make your day better.” You’ve got to understand, I’m already decades into evolving. Am I listening to them? No. Am I arguing with them? No. They can say whatever they want because my internal world is a reflection of me.

JOL Josh Cary | Hidden Entrepreneur

Hidden Entrepreneur: Being ready, willing, and able is nothing more than an ability and an awareness to make choices.

 

I made a decision at that point to utilize something I had been thinking about while I was in the hospital. I think you’ll like this and you’ll share it with other people. That is the following. This goes to anybody who has any diagnosis. Almost everybody on the planet has some. Diagnosis is not destiny. Choice, not chance, determines your destination. As Josh has been sharing with us, ready, willing and able. It’s an inside job. When it’s an inside job, that means it’s up to you. One of the acronyms for JOY is Journey Of You. That’s what joy is about.

The reason I say accept the awkward is because we are all awkward. We are all not only a reflection of each other and one and the same. We are all experiencing the same set of emotions, the same things out here. We’re at different places, but when you are alone in your room, world, or house, we are all the exact same crazy awkward. We’re weird physical beings. We get comfort in crazy, odd, weird things that we think we’re the only ones who do. What does that do? That triggers a sense of disconnection, shame, embarrassment like, “That’s weird.” You start judging it. We’re all the same.

Once you could acknowledge and accept that you’re awkward, I’m awkward. You’re weird. I’m weird. That doesn’t even mean anything. We’re all trying our best. Even if you see, or you think you see people who are ahead of you or more successful, what does that even mean? You know it’s not the case. Everything is a perception. It’s your own imagination. It’s the meaning that you provide it. Change the meaning or not, but don’t give it some credence that doesn’t exist that you made up to begin with.

This is all made up. This moment doesn’t even exist. I’m making it up as I go along. Who knows what it is? What does it mean? What it’s about? It doesn’t matter. This is all about being self-aware. That’s the core of it. Understand what becoming and being self-aware is about without judgment. Believe me, I was, and in some cases still am, the most awkward, anxious person. Over a few years, this microphone I credit for saving my life. I have a keynote talk titled How Podcasting Saved My Life. That’s not hyperbole because it did.

Long story short, I didn’t realize that showing up behind the mic as a guest and certainly as a show host and helping others perfect and do the same, I gained confidence that I didn’t know was part of the package. I’m like, “This is amazing confidence. Confidence, here we go.” That’s why I doubled down on this medium and started doing more of it on both sides of the mic and then started screaming from the mountaintops, teaching and training others to do the same. I’m like, “You’re a little insecure. You’re finding confusion on self-worth, self-value, self-esteem, come over here. Let me help you adjust what you have to say in your head, that noise and get it out through the mic. Do you want to do it as a host? Let’s talk. Do you want to do it as a guest? Let’s talk.”

It’s communication. It’s expression. There’s a boatload of confidence that is here waiting for you. That’s my passion. That’s my mission. That’s what I do all because of my two adoring children, a daughter and a son, who have shown me that life is much better when you’re not angry. I’ll share a quick little story of how that transition happened. I was at my peak, one of my lowest points. I was playing Candyland with my children and I happened to win. Believe me, if I could have let them win, I will. Candyland is one of those games that you spin and whoever wins, wins.

I happened to win, barely paying attention and something in that moment broke me down. I got choked up. I start tearing and crying. My daughter, who couldn’t have been more than three at that time, she says, “Daddy, why are you crying? You won.” I realized that what was happening was in that moment, it all came crashing down that I have been the child in that circle. I was the child in the group here and I was the one with work to do. I made the point from that day forward to do the work and do whatever it took to stop showing up that way. I didn’t want them to continue to see a father who was not doing what he was capable of doing.

The essence of the human being happens in moments of Candyland and exactly what Josh said. That’s why I want you to re-read this and want you to share it because we all have defining moments. They do usually revolve around playing. There’s a great phrase that I’ve been working on using and sharing with lots of people that I interact with. We all know the word place. Everybody has a place. Sometimes you call your home even the place where you go to. What’s the difference between a place and a palace? Everybody can conjure up a palace. We have people from India think the Taj Mahal, even though it’s a mausoleum, or you think the Versailles or the Newport Beach in Rhode Island, the great mansion is a palace.

Everything is just a perception. It's just the meaning that you provide it. Click To Tweet

The only difference between a place and a palace is one letter, A. That A stands for whatever you’re talking about right now, Josh. It’s awareness. When you have awareness, your place becomes your palace. It doesn’t matter if it’s 300 square feet or 300,000 square feet. It doesn’t matter if you have billions that you have net worth or you have no money. It doesn’t matter. You have 24 hours in a day. You’re human. You’re able to go out and express joy, happiness, peace and love.

People are loving this, Josh, because it’s so real. You’re making this so real because that’s the genius of life. Life is to be lived. LIFE is called Living Inspirationally For Eternity. That’s what we’re doing right now. You’re talking about the microphone helped save your life. What that microphone is doing is not only amplifying your voice and allowing you to bring this message, its mission to hundreds of thousands, and God-willing, millions of people around the planet.

In addition to that, do you know what it’s doing? It’s here forever because these sessions are being recorded. God willing, people reading this a decade, two decades, a century from now and say, “They were so backward that they had to use microphones. They didn’t use telepathy.” What’s the difference? They’re listening to the same thing about the human condition, the ability to evolve. You look at that word evolve. The last four letters of that word have the word love in it because that’s what evolving is about. The ability to love and let go, living on vibrant energy. Josh, I am saying thank you.

Everybody, use those two most powerful words in the English language three times a day, consciously and conscientiously. That’s what he’s been talking about. When you do things consciously, when you named the emotion consciously and you own it, identify it and sit with it. Sit is also a great word because we know that in your life because you told us shift happens. It happens to be that a lot of people can’t pronounce that F. They drop it and think the other stuff. It’s a shift. Be prepared for the shift and love it. Josh Cary, you’re wonderful and amazing. I love you. I’m going to ask you a couple of things. Number one, will you come back again?

Anytime.

JOL Josh Cary | Hidden Entrepreneur

Hidden Entrepreneur: Everything on the outside world that we experience is nothing more than the reflection of what is going on inside. If you want anything to change on that outside, you must first begin on the inside.

 

Number two. I’m going to give you a hug in front of 354,822 people around the world. Are you ready for it? As soon as I tell you what hug stands for, though, are you ready?

I’m right here.

HUG stands for Harmonizing Unlimited Giving. Here we go.

I love you, Barry.

Josh Cary, thank you ever so much. Everybody, you have tuned in consciously and conscientiously because you care the most in the entire world about you. That’s great because when you’re the best you possible, you make the world a better place. You build bridges of harmony, create more joy, happiness, peace, love, and the result of you being the best you is you’ll be happier, healthier and wealthier. Who doesn’t want that?

Remember, we live by the three fundamentals of life. Number one, life. Your life has a purpose. Number two, when you live a purpose-driven life, you can go mad. In this case, MAD is a wonderful acronym, Make A Difference. You made a purpose-driven life. You make a difference in the world. Your thoughts, speech, actions are all aligned and good.

You think in good. You speak in good. You act in good. You now become a conduit of good, a cog, become a child of God. The third is to unlock the power and the secrets of everyday words in terms such as WWW, What a Wonderful World. If you see that, Barry Shore is singing to you, What a Wonderful World. You got to smile because SMILE stands for Seeing Miracles In Life Every day, or as my niece says, “Seeing Miracles In Everyday Life.” They’re so sensitive. They understand real life. What they’re doing is creating the kind world they want to live in, CREATE, Causing Rethinking Enabling All to Excel.

As Josh said to us, rethink. F The Noise. FUNN. Tell the world FUNN. You’ve got to add that because it’s fun. It’s the pathway to joy. F The Noise, learn how to do it. Utilize the two most powerful words in the English language three times a day, consciously and conscientiously, thank you, to harmonize and network kindness. Josh, thank you so much for being here. We’re going to leave everybody with a blessing. Our blessing is go forth, live exuberantly, spread the seeds of joy, happiness, peace and love.
