My suggestion - follow the story curve, tell a story about yourself!
Start with a compelling introduction. Say who you are and hint at what you’re trying to achieve.
- Break the routine
Talk about a personal moment in your life – an incident that changed everything.
Talk about your challenges, mini victories, and then more challenges.
Let your conflict show – talk about what has always stopped you from achieving your goals and how you finally overcame (or want to overcome) that hurdle.
- New routine
Talk about the future you imagine for yourself and share the new routine you’ve always dreamed of having. Bring out how much contrast there is between your old and your new routines.
