The Authenticity Challenge


E69: The Authenticity Challenge – Alex Terranova


In the journey of life we all start in different places, and we’ve all got different goals and motivations. Do you know what yours are? Or, are you like so many others who have goals, but for some reason keep hitting roadblocks in the journey? Join Alex and Steven today as they discuss the power of authenticity, setting “anchors”, and the real secret behind making exceptional progress.


  1. Aim for fulfillment, not just the “next” thing
  2. Put “support structures” in place to help you overcome your excuses
  3. Success isn’t about money. Money is good, but it doesn’t equal success (or fulfilment)
  4. Set “progress” goals for yourself so you have stepping stones
