  1. What problem do you solve?
    • Helping people make epic choices to have that epic life they’ve always dreamed of.
  2. What three questions will you answer for our listeners?
    1. How one small step can make a huge difference in the long term.
    2. What 2 magic words will dramatically boost your success.
    3. What the 97/3 rule is.

Show Notes:

  • When we have epic plans and desires, we can keep from being overwhelmed by making that first step
  • Take steps and create structure and everything becomes easier
  • Two magic words are “not yet”. It contains hope and optimism. Not yet shows you are on the way.
  • “No” is a lot more mentally defeating than “Not Yet.” 
  • Zander was on an epic journey to become a licensed counselor and it was interrupted by the pandemic. It gave him time to reflect and realize that everything begins with a first step and then another.
  • Zander is also a proponent of being structured. It makes everything easier.
  • Zander believes that 97% of our day is good and maybe 3% isn’t. We need to not focus so much on the 3%.
  • In baseball, hall of fame athletes have a batting average of somewhere in the 300s. This is getting it right a third of the time. We usually get it right more than 1/3 of the time in our lives.
  • Keep things in perspective. If the majority of your day is good you should be focusing on that.
  • Don’t ignore all the good things going on.
  • Enjoy the journey.

Zander Sprague’s Recharge Round
