Identifying Your Passion
“Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost.”—Anonymous
Passion plays a vital role in the activities we are engaged in our daily lives. The identification and development of a niche market is heavily related with your passion. It has been said by many people and experts, that instead of finding a niche market with a sole reason to make money, instead identify the niche that you are most passionate about. This will automatically increase your chances of success in the long run. There is a very strong logic behind this statement. When you are passionate for something in your life, it is obvious that you will give the maximum time, energy and cost to that particular thing. The other daily activities would take the back stage in your life. Your entire focus and dedication would be on achieving the objective you are very passionate about.
The same is the case for the niche market, your passion would enable you to devote your maximum time, energy and cost in identifying and analysing the important variables that will lead you to success in that niche market. Similarly, if you are searching a particular niche on the internet, your passion would force you to pull together the research for a significant website, then be able to generate substantial traffic of users and make considerable revenue for your business from customers. When your passionate objective is being accomplished, it gives you heaps of joy and happiness. While on the contrary, if you do not show interest in the topic you are studying, there is a less chance that you will arrive at the desired goal of a successful outcome. In the case of an online niche, you will be unwilling and unenthusiastic to continue the work on your website and will devote less than the required time in monitoring and maintaining the website or blog. If you have genuine and considerable passion, then the outcome will match your true expectations.
The most important thing that you should take into consideration during the process of researching the niche market is your preference expertise and comfort in the subject. It is certain that a person who is proficient in “creating websites” for instance will be fully aware of the ins and outs of that particular niche market or any other topic he is engaged in. It is the level of interest and commitment that increases the amount of creativity shown in the work. Once the interest is there, the task becomes simple and spontaneous to you. On top of this, it avoids the biggest barrier that most people find and that is the creation of original and innovative ideas and thoughts. When you are passionate about the niche subject, the task of regular input and updates from your side will prove to be easier. This is of course only possible if your interest and passion continues with consistency in doing the work. You will be in a stronger position to be creative and more effective in your tasks.
So in conclusion, the most important thing here is the level of passion behind any work you do in your life.
