personal narrative essay on a goal?

I need to write a personal narrative essay. I decided to write one on achieving the goal of my national lifeguard certification. Don't really know where to start or what to include in the essay. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

    I would start with a few sentences describing the test. Something like "I sat on the side of the pool, my feet dangling in the water and my heart racing. This was it. It all hinged on the next few minutes." Then the next paragraph would describe the beginning of the journey. When did you decide on this goal? Why? Next would be describing the steps to lifeguard certification. Write about how you achieved each step. Final paragraph would be describing the end of the test - when you found out you reached your goal.
