“. . . If only you will knock, the door will open.” Matthew 7:8 TLB

Here are seven ways to find your niche.

First, get out of your comfort zone.

Second, what are you good at and what do you enjoy?

Passion

What is my secret ambition?

What activities give me satisfaction?

What excites me about life?

What are my hobbies? What you love to do for pleasure will usually reveal your God-given gifts.

Talent

What do I get complimented on?

Where have I excelled in the past?

Where have I been successful?

What are some of my strengths?

Destiny

What was I born to do?

What does God want me to do?

What are my unique opportunities?

Where can I make a difference?

Third, don’t over think it.

“If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself.  In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” Proverbs 3:4-6 TLB

Fourth, the biggest chance you’ll ever take. . .is not taking a chance at all.

“Are you a slave? Don’t let that worry you—but if you get a chance to be free, take it.” 1 Corinthians 7:21 NLT

Fifth, today is the perfect day to start.

“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” Ecclesiastes 11:4 TLB

Sixth, free your mind from fear of failure.

“In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).” Ephesians 3:12 AMP

Seventh, forward march.

“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Quit praying and get the people moving! Forward, march!” Exodus 14:15 TLB
