The Easy Way to Find Your Niche’
I know what’s it’s like to feel clueless about what to do with my life, or where to begin. There are so many interesting things out there to get in to. But, none of us want to do things we’re not good at, or invest too much precious time doing things we don’t like. I found my niche, and while I can admit to being good at many things, I had to put my focus on one thing to reach success. All my great ideas and business fantasies wait their turn on my mental rolodex and written back-burner. I’ll get to each one of them in order of significance when the time is right.
After deciding which idea you’re going to commit to – the first boundary you’ll need to enforce is: : Accepting that you can’t do everything, and definitely not at once.
A Jack-of-All-Trades is a Master at none.
Part of the reason so many of us don’t reach our full potential is because we spread ourselves thin, over so many mundane tasks. We won’t get every task done, or be able to accomplish every fantasy we dream up, and we’re not supposed to either. By nature we’re compelled to organize, dispose of, and prioritize the things we really want to keep. When we go against this system we run into major conflict finding our niche’.
As humans, we can only operate at a certain capacity. When we go too far beyond that capacity we’re just spinning our own wheels. Spreading our mental and emotional resources in every direction not only makes it difficult to get things done, the things we do don’t turn out as good as they could be had we directed all of our energy on them independently . The more we do the less likely it is for us to walk into our purpose, or accomplish important goals.
When it comes to online business, creating your own virtual flow, or deciding how you want to present yourself in the abyss of Internet energetic field, it can be super challenging. This is especially true if you expose yourself to exorbitant virtual stimuli while trying to make this important decision for yourself. Cut everything off, take a chill pill and get ready to call up some friends and family for a brief but very useful chat.
I love this part, because while you don’t have to take their advice or tell them why you’re asking the question I’m going to share with you in this article – you can learn an awful lot about what the people closest to you think about your ability. You might be surprised, humbled, or fascinated by what they tell you, and I hope you also agree with what they tell you. You’re going to find out where you stand in the eyes of the people closest to you. If for some reason you absolutely disagree, that’s okay, too. All I recommend is for you to consider their honest feedback. An open mind really helps! Grab a sheet of paper.
- Step 1: Call 5 to 6 close friends and family members. Ask each of them what they think you are good at. Write those answers down.
- Step 2: Write down a list of 10 things (yes, you can find 10) that you think you are good at. Make sure at least 5 of them are things you enjoy a lot and can stand by emotionally; things that make you feel good.
- Step 3: Do a comparative analysis between what your friends and family think you’re good at, and your ideas about yourself.
- Step 4: Bring both lists together by matching ones that are the same or similar. Recount.
- Step 5: From what you have, pick out all of the ones you can do easily. Choose your top 3.
- Step 6: Using those 3, do some research and find out if there is a market for this skill, or talent.
- Step 7: Pick one. If any of the two remaining talents can reasonably be integrated with your final choice determine how you will use it. If it works add it, if it requires extra work put it on the back burner.
- Step 8: Get ready to PARTY. You’ve chosen a Niche’ that has the potential to take you far. This could be that thing that moves you along the path of your dreams. Success and financial transformation await you!
The hardest part of starting any business is deciding what to do, and that’s true for most people. Fear of failure is a major concern for most of us, or the simple fact that not all of us wake up and know we want to be the next draft pick into the NFL. Most people struggle with placing themselves in a field that is just right for them. This activity is exactly how I decided to bet on myself with A Dream LYFE project. You are your biggest and most important investment, more than your house or anything you own. Without you, none of this is possible, and it’s why you should celebrate this little milestones. These small feats come together with the others to make big success and accomplishment possible.
I read an article some time ago by Shanique Davis in Forbes Magazine where she’d created a custom acronym for PARTY that inspired me. Since then I’ve created one of my own for sharing small milestones. It goes like this…
P – Part with ineffective behaviors and Prepare for the Future.
A – Adapt to different environments.
R – Reach out to mentors who are already successful at what you’re doing.
T – Turn your experiences into lessons leaned from.
Y – Yearn to be a life-long learner who never settles.
