Once upon a time… everything starts as a story.
What’s inside this story for you? Well… let me be brief.
There is hope.
Hope that you will change your life no matter when you want to do it.
Hope that you can do anything that you want to, with all of your heart.
Hope that when you decide what you want… when you meet your internal truth, the Universe hears you and starts to act towards fulfilling your dreams. You suddenly find yourself into a sea of coincidences and synchronicities which target only one point… your real desire.
If I could do it, you can do it too!
A long time ago, but not so long ago, a man and a woman had met. They fell in love. It was love at first sight. Two mature people succeeded to meet finally after almost half a century of searching and waiting. Suddenly all their beliefs and habits had changed. They had to. He was living on one continent of this planet while she was living on another. One of them had to move, and they had decided that she will be the one.
But… what to do? What will she do for work? She was not the type to stay at home and spend most of her time in the kitchen. At her age, who would hire her on a new continent, in a new country, and in a new society? She had a baggage full of diplomas in many domains, but the new couple was realistic. Suddenly an idea hit their minds. She’ll become a writer. Yes, she loves to write even if up to that moment she never thought that she would ever make a living from writing.
But… anything is possible when you truly want to do it.
This man and this woman started from zero, as a team. None of them ever had an interest in this domain until that moment.
This was probably their luck. Starting from zero can be a great adventure.
Maybe, you already guessed it… the female character from the above story is me.
A new amazing and exciting period had just begun.
Let’s keep this story short though.
After publishing two books and still working on five others; after learning how to maintain and write for three personal websites and having a regular column on another one… I… yes, it’s about me here, and it’s my honor and pleasure to share this story with my readers; after doing all of these things… I finally understood the exact thing that I wanted to focus on. It took me a year and a half to decide this.
For you, as someone who also wants to make a living from your writing but perhaps still unable to find your niche… for you, I have good news. Don’t stress yourself. Let your heart decide and give it the freedom to do it in its own time. When your heart finally announces you, this will be the best solution to any and all questions that you’ve ever had.
Believe me… I was there, and I’ve done it! You only have to be serious in chasing your desire as a writer/blogger and the rest will come.
During all these times, I met wonderful people. Some of them became close friends. I will not mention them here, and they know who they are.
But… I do want to mention two special friends who changed my future. Or maybe the future was already written, and they only helped me see it more clearly. Who knows? Who would ever know what is the real answer to this question?
The Arrows… Sarah & Kevin Arrow.
Many of you already know them. For those who were not so lucky to meet them until now, do yourself a favor and try to. I can’t say enough words to express my gratitude to Sarah & Kevin, and I will not try to describe their personalities because I have a feeling that human words can’t do it too accurately. Moreover, I will let you have the pleasure to discover all their qualities.
Our first meeting occurred one year ago. It was by virtue of the “30 Day Blogging Challenge” which they proposed to bloggers who wanted to enter into the “game”. I did it, and… it was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my career and my life.
Let me explain why I am so grateful to them.
I am that kind of a person who knows many things, who’s studied a lot, but also whom can never focus on only one subject. It’s who I am, and I love myself as I am. Because of this personal style, it was very hard for me to decide what my niche was going to be. That’s because I can’t write only about one subject. It’s somewhat boring for me. To feel happiness, my mind needs to jump freely between many subjects.
Moreover, I believe that the knowledge I’ve gained up until my current age can be useful to many people… and even if only one person on this planet will benefit from what I’ve found in nearly 40 years of hard studies, then I know I am on the right track by writing about it.
Well… not being able to decide what my niche was going to be, it made it somewhat difficult to attract clients and make a good living from my writing. Thus, I’ve greatly enjoyed my writing time and the main income coming from book sales. It continued this way until one day… when… a miracle happened, and a question hit me like an arrow hits its bull’s-eye. “Why don’t you become a content writer?”
You guessed it. The Arrows launched the tempting arrow.
My mind started to boil over, and soon a real volcano erupted in both my conscious and subconscious minds. For me, it was a challenge, and whenever I hear the word challenge, I can’t run away… I have to face it. 🙂 Soon, I understood that I finally found my niche.
Another learning period had begun… my heart was deep into it, and this helped my mind grasp the information more easily.
Now I can say… I am a proud and happy content-writer!
Maybe Sarah & Kevin never knew what they brought into my life with their brilliant idea… but I will tell them now…
The content writing is my only chance to have a challenging niche that will never let me feel bored, not even for one second. That’s because I am researching and writing about so many domains! Exactly what I needed but couldn’t see it for myself.
From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU, Sarah & Kevin Arrow!
