According to Harvard professor Dr. Luana Marques, there is one sneaky habit that holds every single person back – and no one knows what it is.

When she reveals the habit that holds you back, your first reaction will be to stop and think.

And as you listen to her explain it and give you examples, you’ll be shocked that you’ve never before seen it in yourself or heard anyone else point it out to you… until now.

You’re not the only one.

I didn’t know about this habit until I was introduced to Dr. Marques’ work.

What you learn today will change how you think about success, influence, mindset, and even anxiety and procrastination.

This sneaky habit has been holding you back and you didn’t even realize how pervasive it is in your life.

It’s not self-doubt. It’s not fear. It’s something even deeper.

I want you to listen, because she’s the world’s leading expert on the topic, and this is one of those episodes that will make you never look at life the same again.
