Why a Goal—or Even a Mission—Isn’t Enough to Get to the Top

Once you make your declaration, you’ll end up at the top.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Do you have a mission? A goal? A dream?

Look, those are all fine . . . but if you really want to get somewhere significant, if you want to end up at the top, if you want to be the Best, you need something with a little more weight to it.

That’s why I create declarations.

I’ve created four of them in my life. My kids create them. All my clients create them.

In fact, I think declarations are so powerful that they make up the first section of my upcoming book, There’s No Plan B for Your A-Game.

Why declarations?

Because the outcome is entirely predictable. Once you make your declaration, you’ll end up at the top.

Let’s get to work on yours now. It all starts in the video below.

Take Action:

There’s no time like the present. What do you want to be the best in the world at? Make your declaration in the comments below! Announcing it in public is the first step to making it real. Don’t forget to use the phrase “the Best” in yours!

One more thing . . .

I’m putting together an exclusive group on Facebook called the A-Lister Team. I’d love you to be a part of it.

When you join me, you’ll get all kinds of perks, like a FULL pre-release copy of my book, LIVE weekly content only for A-Listers, access to exclusive training opportunities—and more.
