Sometimes, it can seem like hard work generating new, fresh content for your blog. Writers block sets in and we agonise about what to write.

Next time you feel stuck, try this exercise for some inspiration. You  may even find you have enough material to launch a new business, or niche website!

Ask yourself this question….

What is the most challenging thing you’ve ever overcome?

Dig deep. Think about all the obstacles you’ve overcome in your life. This is not easy to do and especially as we usually try to focus on the positives in our lives, but bear with me for a moment.

Have you overcome cancer, bullying, losing your hair, failing an exam, the end of a relationship, or had to live with dyslexia, aspergers, abuse, physical disability?

Pick the biggest obstacle on your list and think about how you’ve overcome that challenge. What did you do to cope with it, heal it or resolve the problem?

The chances are you feel strongly and passionately about what you’ve overcome. Can you write it down and share it with others?

Because, whatever you’ve overcome, other people are struggling with. They will be searching for information on how they too can overcome their challenges, and will welcome advice and help from someone that understands their predicament.

So, perhaps this is the time to start that blog, write that book (or ebook), or record some videos helping others overcome a challenge that you have already succeeded with.
