Picking Your Triumph Story
Consider where in your niche you are today or in your personal life. What obstacles did you overcome or what milestones did you surpass? Dig out the details and consider what keys or steps to the story make it informative and benefit others.
Alternately, you could share someone else’s triumphs by relating them to your niche. When you get inspired by someone else’s triumph, take note of the scenario so you can write about it later. The key to writing about another’s triumphs is to make sure it’s originally presented by bringing a new angle to the story if it’s something that has already been written about.
Also, (in both scenarios) consider how the story is relevant to your niche and your reader. You can tweak the story to include other lessons, tips, and more, but remember: the goal of telling a triumph story is to send the message to your reader that anything is possible.
