Known as the “Ambassador of JOY,” Barry Shore is a mental health activist, philanthropist, multi-patent holding entrepreneur, speaker, author, podcaster, and former quadriplegic who is now swimming around the world!

After a rare disease paralyzed Barry from the neck down, he created the JOY of LIVING Institute™ (a platform that teaches people to live in joy, no matter the situation), The Keep Smiling movement that has reached multiple celebrities and distributed millions of “Keep Smiling” cards worldwide, and Changebowl which is a philanthropic platform featured in Oprah’s Magazine.

Barry’s podcast, The JOY of LIVING, is heard globally by hundreds of thousands and has over three million downloads.

Here are the highlights of this episode:

Barry shared with us that the ideal people who are attracted to what he and his team does, are people who are sad; suffering from stress, anxiety, and mild depression. Stress is sucking the life of these people, and the 3 possible roots of their stress can either be family, finances, and fitness or health. They will continue to suffer if they don't know how to reduce, eliminate, and leverage. 

People tend to eat so much of the wrong food, they tend to drink too much, tend to be irritable, not able to have a restful sleep, and people tend to exercise less or they over exercise and they're stressing themselves out. People think joy is a byproduct of success. And once they come to recognize that joy is 'foundational' to success, it opens a floodgate of understanding on how to solve problems. JOY stands for "Journey Of You".

Barry got paralyzed; 144 days at the hospital, 4 years on a wheelchair, and a lot of obstacles he faced. Still, he is positive, just because of one word: SMILE - Seeing Miracles In Life Everyday. That's what he's sharing with the world now. 

Barry’s Valuable Free Action (VFA):

Learn to love 'dog poop'- it stands for "Doing Of Good, Power Of One Person". Service is the essence of business and the result is making money. So, when your mindset is doing good and you know you have the power of one person, then things will shift. Connect, network, and grow.

If you don't know how to reduce, eliminate, and leverage stress to your advantage, then you will continue to suffer" – Barry Shore
