“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

1. what's in it for the reader/listener/viewer?
2. How can you give generously in exchange for their time and attention?
3. Does your content create an emotional reaction?
4. Is it specific?
5. What is nobody talking about i relation to your topic?
The secret ingredient
The devil recently needed funds for hell renovations. (And yes, renovations can be hell). So he decided to auction some torture tools on eBay.
A journalist sent to interview him asked about a little tool that happened to be the most expensive one.
"Ah, my favorite", the devil said.
"What is it?"
"It's a wedge. It keeps the door of hopelessness open so humans never get to discover how to get what they want. They get disheartened even before starting. You know how humans would stop themselves with questions like: "who am I to do this? This is impossible for me. Somebody else has already tried. What if it doesn't work for me? I'm not worth it". All that kills the most essential part of getting good at whatever you want to do: hope. If there is no hope, why even try."
For change and impact, we need hope.
I'm not talking about motivation, optimism, positive thinking or false hope.
I'm talking about real hope that your reader can get good at whatever it is and can get wherever they want to go.
Note - Your content doesn't have to repeat variations of "you got this" to create hope. It doesn't even need to explicitly use the word "hope".
