You can have an impressive background and finely honed skills, but all the experience in the world might not be enough to overcome the 4 major fear blockers preventing you from taking the next big step in your career. What are the biggest roadblocks to overcoming fear and how do we drive around them, or straight through them, on the road to success?

Jacqueline T.D. Huynh arrived in the United States in 1975 as a Vietnamese refugee, her family carrying only the clothes on their back and the hope of the American dream. Since then, she has become a #1 Amazon best-selling author, radio personality, keynote speaker and trainer focusing on leadership development, dynamic communication and family foundation.

“Sometimes society really creates powerful things, and depending on what you want to do with it, you can create something more powerful or you can shrink from it.

“I used where I came from to show people that fear is with us. We can’t get rid of it, but we can use it to our advantage.”

“I think one of the biggest limiting beliefs that we all buy into is ‘you gotta work hard for your money’.”

“[Fear] means nothing until we give it meaning.”

“90 percent of success is mindset.”  

“We all know how to drive, we all know how to get somewhere, it’s just some people’s windshields are a lot cleaner than others.”
