The man who chases two rabbits catches none. Discovering your niche is one of the harder parts for anyone. There might be thousands of ideas running in your head right now but it is important to focus on one niche. The grass is green where you water it, not on the other side. From this context, I hope you can make out the importance of having one niche. If you go deep in one niche and find out there is a market need for it and most importantly, it aligns with your thoughts, you’re almost near to finding your niche goal. Imagine calling everyone in a crowd gathering, if you’re calling everyone no one will bother, Call specific people and they will respond. This is the reason having a specific Niche and getting the response of people is important. Your Niche is out there and you have to just pick it and move forward. If you specialize in one thing the productivity will increase.
New Niche is born every day, New needs are discovered every day. As you spend years specializing in one niche, it will become harder & harder for someone else to catch up with you. Imagine if you specialize in one niche for 30 years, there will be no one or it will be very hard for the others to come up to your level. You can also mix & match skills which are called skill Stacking to come up with a unique combination of skills.
Curiosity is the driving force of learning a new subject and a skill. The force is pure and unadulterated in childhood. You need to have fun finding your niche. Think about what made you curious to know about when you were in your childhood days. Your niche has to be connected with your inner force which you had from your childhood. You will do something more only if you enjoy doing it. You will develop mastery in something with time only if you do it. This will lead to a higher level of mastery. A feedback loop that cannot be stopped. The more you are connected with your inner force, the happier you will be in your life. “BECOME WHO YOU ARE BY LEARNING WHO YOU ARE”(Pindar, Ancient Greek Poet) It is a lifelong process.
