If you want to write Success Stories that’s good. You’ve already got your intentions in mind for writing. You want people to read your book, or to look at your website, or your blog.
While there are successful books and websites out there, most people will never reach those heights. Not because they are not good writers or because they do not know what they are doing. But because their success has been in their own minds. And that’s where the story starts.
The Success Story like an epic poem that the reader will relate to. You don’t need to build characters and flesh them out and make the characters more than just initials. You need to tell the story in short, compelling paragraphs. Give the reader a reason to stop reading and move onto something else. Writing a Success Story isn’t difficult. You do it by constantly thinking about the success that you want to achieve. The number one way to do this is to imagine your goal in the here and now.
What is success to you? What do you enjoy doing? When you start to think about yourself as a business owner, entrepreneur, or a person that just wants to help others, you begin to picture yourself in that place. You become more comfortable with your success story because you feel more confident about your success.
Now, the next step is to figure out what is success to me. How does success apply to me? Where am I in my life right now? What parts of my life am I enjoying? And finally, what part is my failure?
Think about the things that are important to you. Once you have your answer to these questions, you can begin to build your story around it. This will enable you to build a Success Story that you can take with you on the road to success.
Famous successful people (people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oprah, etc.) are really living a Success Story. These people live their lives in service to others, work hard, and then come home to be with their families. People who seem to be failing at it are actually struggling with the whole concept of being successful. Instead of working hard, they give up. And instead of spending time with their family, they prefer to hang out with their friends and entertain themselves.
You see, most people who are successful are there because they’re willing to put in the time and effort to get there. They already have a purpose in life and they are using it to create their story. They are not thinking about what they want to be but they are thinking about what they want to do.
A good success story is a story that encourages you to live a better life. It inspires you to be the best that you can be. You are a better person because of it.
So write your Success Story. Write it for yourself and then write it for your future self. Then you will see what success means to you.
