finding your nicheHas anyone ever asked you if you have discovered your niche? Since I was very young, I knew that one day I would be using my talents to help others in life feel better about themselves. The path that I took was far different than what I envisioned but the outcome has been fabulous!

Once you realize what your niche is, it is like being a child who first learns how to link the alphabet together to form words. It is an awesome feeling finally being able to unfold the treasure that you have had available to you all along but were not quite sure what it all meant or how to successfully use it.

The same holds true to those of you who have struggled throughout your life because of missed opportunities. You work hard day in and day out; and by the end of the year, you look back and wonder where all your money has gone, where the time has gone or perhaps why things keep happening to you over and over again. I promise that misfortune is not out to get you. What is happening, however, is the fact that you have locked away your niche and are not using it to your best potentiality. A good example of that is in one of my past clients. As the proverbial “starving artist”, he had worked retail management jobs for the better part of his life until he wanted to make a full-time career out of his “hobby,” that is, of painting beautiful structures on canvas. “I want to be a renowned artist like Michelangelo or Picasso,” he said. His satisfaction came from the recognition of his artwork. By the time he completed my one-on-one lifestyle coaching program, he had discovered his niche and re-discovered his passion. He was ready to take his ability to the next level, but it was not nearly what he thought it would be. Let’s call him Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith decided to take night classes to finish his degree in the arts and became a teacher where he now teaches architecture and landscaping. Not only is he recognized for the great work that he does with these young adults in the community, he also gets to show others how to facilitate their own gifts to create their own useful works of art as they enliven their lives.

There are countless others, who have turned one, two and even more numerous gifts into something useful, joyful and gratifying in their lives. Like Mr. Smith, they possess a unique niche but have neither discovered their gifts, nor have they sought otherbalance of life avenues to further their prospects with those gifts. But I can say that it is never too late to start a new venture on your journey toward your greatest joy. Sometimes individuals become so focused on an idea that they do not see other paths they can take to fulfill their life’s dreams. This also applies to acquiring things and even people in our lives. Maybe we are trying so hard to make sure that our present life works that we miss the bigger picture of exploring other possibilities that are more fulfilling.

I know people who are trying so hard to meet the love of their life that they lose sight of what might just be right around the corner for them. From this moment on, I do not want you to focus so much on trying to get everything at once, or just get one thing – rather, I want you to say to yourself: “Everything is as it should be.” Remember, all things happen in life to help us to grow emotionally, mentally, spiritually and even professionally. When you learn to let go and let God steer your way, or simply allow the flow of the Universal Energy to enlighten your path, you unexpectedly will discover the niche you were intended to enjoy in order to fulfill your life’s journey.

I have a great deal of information and articles on my website that will help you grow and fulfill your highest best good. Don’t waste another day doing something that is low energy as it causes you to miss your fullest. Make the time to find your niche and enjoy the richness for your life today.
