How to find a niche within yourself. Unusual technique!

Last Update: March 13, 2014

This may seem pointless to you at first but the deeper you look the more you may find out.

If you are struggling to find a passion or niche for something, here is an unusual technique I came across quite some years ago.

See yourself in the time where you were between 7 and 14 years old. What was your passion then? (They say this is what you should proberbly have done all your life).

What might that have been? (Airplanes = pilot)

Mad about ..., collected ..., wrote ..., drawing..., dancing ..., acting..., stamps..., collecter cards..., a sport..., and so on.

Give yourself a break with pen and paper and the brew,(drink), of your choice and get those juices flowing! If you still have parents, ask their opinion of your behaviour or creativity etc during those years?

The next step is making sure you are not being too broad about the subject, think of it as a more specialised subject, product, genre, etc.

Then hit the keyword search and away you go.

I hope this may help some of you crack "that thing"!

Best wishes

Please "follow me" and "like/(or not)" and "comment" on my blog post/s.

(Also Facebook icon at top of blog page would be superrrr!)

Have a great day!

Very good ideas on finding a niche. I've been having a problem with a finding a good niche. I believe it's due to the fact that, like everybody else starting out, are trying to find that gem that nobody else has.

Exactly right - but if one does the classes, they will soon feel the motivation building inside - the rest will follow! - and of course, reach out for help when it is needed!

Thanx Gusti
That is my style - even when I talk to someone I tend to call a "spade" a "spade".
