FIVE THINGS THAT CAN STOP YOU FROM ACHIEVING YOUR DREAMS.

                   Photo by Clarke Sanders/Unsplash.com BY JULIE IBOK It’s sometimes a sad truth that majority of women give up on their dreams in life. Sometimes it happens early and at other times, it may happen late. It happens early, when as a little girl you were told by your parents that whatever you are aiming at in life is impossible to reach. It happens later, when at an older age, instead of trying to change, you decide to remain the same way. It’s a sad thing when a dream dies. And even worse when it does too soon. To keep from letting your dreams die, ask those around you what’s the last creative thing they have seen you do. Their response may help you see the gaps in your life and spur you into action.

  Photo: Ruth Echem Zubairu/Facebook  Ruth Echem Zubairu is an online visibility expert. She is the founder of AVC NG where she works as a consultant, a corporate trainer, coach and a speaker.  Prior to this time, Ruth and her spouse had moved to a new city. As a new mom of two toodlers under two years, Ruth struggled with a loss of identity. She desired for other ways to express herself other than being vested in domestic chores all day long. She wanted to do more and be more. She longed to have adult conversations and always found she took out her frustrations on her spouse.  At a point in time, Ruth discovered she wasn't fair to her spouse at those moments she unbundled her frustrations on him because he had also gotten his share of challenges at work.  This realization led Ruth to a place of discovery which she has coined as the '5 A’s for positive transitioning'. Ruth says transitioning means different things to different people. It could mean investing funds in a busi
