How To Find Your Niche....That Eureka Moment.
How do you find your niche?
It hit me like a bolt from the blue. I had written a number of articles, around 80 I seem to remember. Off the cuff articles of varying types. How to articles, poems, general interest stuff that sort of thing. You always here around the internet and various circles that ''you have to find your niche''. '' Keywords, SEO, more keywords, more SEO, '' you have to find your niche!''
'For goodness sakes', I could hear myself say when reading this stuff. All I want to do is write about things which interest me! All the same I do believe in listening to what people have done before me and I love to hear about their struggle to success. That said, I think deep down I was struggling to find '' my niche''
'Eureka' I found it! I had written a number of so called inspirational hubs and the response I had got was very encouraging. Mmm, I thought, could this be my niche. Positivity, self help, coaching has always been of interest to me.
How can an aspiring novice writer like me possibly encourage others to take me seriously though? That is the old me talking. The person who was always pulling himself down and constantly giving himself a hard time about bad decisions he had taken in the past.
I found it!
What happens when you find your purpose?
When you find your purpose you never look back. I thought that my purpose here was to help people become successful before me. In a way that is true, but when you find out what your real purpose is your writing takes on a whole new meaning. Yes I want to help people become successful at writing for Hub Pages but I also want to achieve set goals for myself regarding my own writing. Writing in a niche will allow me to do this. A niche which is never short of substance and ideas. You see everybody is always searching for information. Information which will ultimately make them successful. Successful if they follow a particular plan. Successful if they do ABC and get results.
This is now my higher purpose if you like. Teaching people an ABC plan to get them where they want to go through the internet. Of course I am still learning myself. We never give up learning. I don't believe I will ever have all the answers. What I will have is the experience of actually doing what I am doing and being able to pass on my knowledge.
Rome wasn't built in a day.
How many times have you heard this, I wonder? True though it is. Anything worth having is worth waiting for. Doing something bit by bit will benefit you in the long run. Be patient and work consistently everyday and you will get where you want to go. Review your goals and targets daily and make adjustments and changes as necessary, you will be stronger for it.
My best advice has got to be to find your niche and your purpose and everything else will be taken care of. Knowing this will allow you to concentrate on getting there no matter how long it takes.
Having a plan will only help and get you there quicker.
Where do you go now?
If you are like me then you will go in the direction you feel most comfortable going. I now feel most comfortable writing inspirational, positive hubs and articles. It seems to be what people are looking for. If I can help just one person to become successful as a result of my writing then I feel that it will be a job well done.
If you look back at various events and historical people, they all had a purpose. Prime Ministers and Presidents, they all have a purpose in life. You too have to find your purpose to propel you forward into the unknown. A great adventure is the way that I see it. A journey to which there is no end or final destination.
You must go in the direction where you are currently getting the most success. It may not be the purpose you had intended but you must not fight it. Listen to your intuition and take action to achieve what it is you are looking for.
It's a fantastic day!
When I finally found out my real purpose and my niche, it was a fantastic day and I don't think I have ever looked back since. Yes I will write other things to distract me for a while, yes I will waste time on Facebook and Google+ and I will not always be as productive as I should be. None of that matters when you have found what you do best. What matters is that you are true to yourself and you stick with your instincts and continue to write in the niche that you do your best work in. The main reason for this is that it will show in your articles and you will never be short of subject matter if you write about what you do best.
Sounds simple? That is because it IS!
