I have learned a secret that I want to share with you.
The greatest discovery I have made writing this blog is you.
As I write about my own stories and try to inspire you to live a better story of your own, I have come to realize that many of you already are. Some of you have written me and told me about the journey that either you or someone you know is on.
And your stories are amazing.
I have learned that the world is full of people who are Secretly Incredible. People like you.
These secrets are too amazing to let them remain that way. I have been inspired so much by your stories, that I want to share them with everyone else.
I want to tell everyone your secret. I want the world to know your story. And I want to help you share it with them.
Starting next week, every Friday I plan to spotlight the story of a person who is Secretly Incredible.
But I need your help finding these stories. I need you to tell me about the incredible story that either you or someone you know is living.
When I highlight your story on the blog, I plan on leaving links to your own website and social media connections, so that as many people as possible can learn more about you.
From your submissions, I will select 20 to tell the world about. The contest will remain open until I select the last one. Up until then feel free to submit as many names and stories as you want.
At the end, I will put the stories together and publish them in a book. Yes. a real book with you and your story in it.
Remember, the more people you share this contest with, the better the stories will be. Please tell everyone you know.
To enter fill out the form below. Include your name, email address, and the person you want to nominate. Then in 200 words or less give me a description of yourself or the person you are nominating and what makes the story so incredible.
I will notify winners by email. Since the contest will last for up to 20 weeks, you may receive an email from me up to 4 months from now. If you do not receive an email, assume that I did not choose your story.
By entering, you are agreeing to allow me to publicly publish your story. I will not publish the story without notifying you or without your explicit consent.
