Finding Your Niche
Don’t center your focus on the end achievement,
Know it while digging for its root.
Find what drives you towards it,
Introspection is a vital key.
Accept whatever leads you away and towards,
Discover what it means to you.
Understand how it speaks to and through you,
Own the experience to share with others.
When searching for your niche in the world, self-acceptance and self-understanding are vital keys to earn. Sessions of introspection are necessary to dig for and recognize your roots. It’s a process of knowing in the not-knowing while in an experience shared by all.
On the journey, there will be situations that lead you away and towards your destination. It’s the milestone to not let perfection be an enemy of greatness. It’s embracing who you are and not replicating the success of others. Self-recognition is a habit to keep while becoming more of yourself.
Finding your niche is the opportunity to create a physical and mental environment with a level of intention that hasn’t been thought of before. It’s being able to focus while displaying the attributes that show the best version of who you are. It’s a gradual realization of the best version of who you are in action and thought. Understanding how your journey speaks to you offers you the freedom to share yourself with others.
