A declaration is something that is announced, avowed, or proclaimed.
When an individual makes a declaration, it’s a marker.
The declaration marks the end one chapter and marks the beginning of a new chapter … especially if it’s done positively and explicitly.
A declaration can free you from your past – it can propel you toward a new future.
By definition, declarations must be declared. They must be said out loud. Others must hear your declaration. Declarations are not thoughts or silent ideas.
A few months ago in a post, I declared myself a former Forrest Gump impersonator.
This declaration freed me to pursue my speaking career in way that wasn’t possible when I still thought of myself as a Forrest Gump impersonator. It liberated me.
That declaration proved most useful for changing my own mindset. It had more to do about my own thinking than what others thought of me.
And here’s the ironically simple part … it just needed to be stated.
What silent idea are you currently not sharing?
What future change in your life needs to be declared?
What’s stopping you from making that declaration?
