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. These five things can sabotage your dreams: A Lack of Self-Belief When you don't believe in yourself, you are putting a lid over the great ideas that you have.

3 Ways Women Can Unlock Their Potential

By Awunli Eghosasere  This is the transcribed and updated version of the talk I gave in commemoration of women's day. As a woman, in today's world, we have lesser obstacles to combat on our path in comparison to what women who came before us faced in their journey to making the most of their lives. For example, Milevia Maric, a woman who lived in the 20th century and the first wife of Albert Einstein encountered  gender bias that led her life down the path of many misfortunes. She was a talented physicist and mathematician but the world didn’t hear her name. We only heard about the feats of Albert Einstein, her husband. However, recent research has revealed that she contributed to the "theory of relativity" that garnered him much fame in society. Their marriage didn't work out and they got divorced. Afterwards, she became a shadow of herself for the rest of her life. There was no dime or achievement to her name. Had her potential been unlocked, perha

And having taken that step, it became increasingly difficult to find another job.  Surviving on a single income source was not sustainable and sometimes she felt her life was wasting away as she couldn’t find a platform to fufill her career ambitions, she had disclosed. Many women in society are facing a similar situation. They are unable to find work when they move to a new city to begin a new chapter with their spouses. Often times, resources and job opportunities are limited in their new location.  In addition, women may not be able to go to another city if an opportunity opens up for them to pursue their career ambitions. Because, the societal and cultural norm is that a woman follows her husband to wherever he gets a job and not the other way round.  Howeve

HOW TO NAVIGATE A LOSS OF IDENTITY DURING A TRANSITION

  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
