Barry’s Nuggets Of Wisdom:

“curiosity is the great equalizer”

“When we look at the game of selling, how effective we are at being curious has a massive impact on the process”

how often do we ask our spouse, how we are doing, compared to their ideal, how would they describe our behavior, what are the things they would like us to see better and more effective at”

“the only way to achieve greatness in any area of your life, you have to break through your limiting beliefs”

“size has no indication of internal peace of mind and competence”

“one needs to take that first step, one needs to have that faith, of can you do this, it isn’t about do I know how, it’s just I need to get started, and I need to be curious to go figure out who knows what I need to know, how do I learn about it, what does that look like”

“the strategy that a parent uses when a child is young, if that strategy doesn’t evolve with that childs strategy of life, there’s conflict”

“God gave you two ears and a mouth for a reason, use them”

“would you rather be right or would you rather be rich, would you rather be right or would you rather be happy, would you rather be right or would you rather be in relationship”

“if you’re digging a hole, stop digging”

the magic of life is how do you create space and let greatness happen”


Barry’s Impact: Wants to be remembered as a great parent, spouse and friend, and getting a person to think a thought they never thought before.
