    • He understood reality
    • He lived in reality
    • BUT:
    • -He understood the power of alternatives
    • -He developed his own alternatives
    • -He evolved within his alternatives
    • -He became bi-cultural in profound ways
    • -He grew young and prospered
    • -He changed our collective future
  • 13. Now, John will now provide “Gray Area” and “Sweet Spot” examples of how to grow young and prosper through chaordics - today and in future!
