Have You Found Your Niche?

Written by Idede Oseyande

Your Niche Is Vacant!

As a child, we would look at each other’s palms and compare the lines and the designs. We find it difficult to believe that every person on earth has a distinct and different design on their palm. Over time, with scientific confirmations, we were forced to face reality, or perhaps, the truth, about the distinctness of our palms as individuals.

As we acted in ignorance years back when we were little children, that is how so many young people, and sadly, adults inclusive, are acting ignorantly today with respect to finding their niches and filling it.
This has created an inferiority complex in the lives of some, caused depression and bitterness in others, and created a void of unhappiness, emptiness, and worthlessness in many.

Just last week, I stumbled on a short video on social media, that mimicked the fear police officers now have for a Nigerian, popularly called @Segalink. This is because Mr #Awosanya ‘Segun, (@Segalink), has over the years filled that niche, by standing up for victims of police brutality.
Despite the largeness of that niche, he is doing his very best.

The crux of the matter is this. Niches vary in different fields of human endeavours, and the creator in his divine wisdom also wired us to fit into these niches in various capacities.
Unfortunately, we tend to cluster around those that have identified their inches and have filled or filling it. While we celebrate or envy them, admire or vilify them, we leave our niches empty.

The painful reality is that humanity suffers each time an individual leaves a niche empty. The solution you carry remains untapped, unexploited, and unutilised. Humanity is deprived of the awesomeness that lied fallow in you.

Be it business, social work, career, or even a personal life goal, it has to be in line with your niche to give you inner peace, satisfaction, and the greatness you deserve.

Don’t make the world suffer for your failure.
Find your niche, and fill it!
