It’s not easy to set a world record. There are many steps. If you want to set a new record, it has to be completely different from any other world record. If you want to break a record, you have to look at the Guinness database and see if you have what it takes to break it. Either way, you have to be persistent, dedicated, and have an amazing skill.
First, you need to decide on a record to set or break. The record must be measurable, breakable, standardizable, verifiable, based on one variable, and you have to be the best in the world. Next, you have to apply to Guinness World Records and wait to receive guidelines. This could take up to 12 weeks. There are many reasons you could be rejected, so be sure to look at their website carefully. After that, you will need to look at the Guide to Evidence to make sure your world record attempt is verifiable. You also need to practice a ton.
Next, decide on a place, time and date to try and break or set a record. You will need a photographer and videographer to film your attempt. Finally, you submit your evidence and required documents. If you do break the record, they will give you a Guinness World Record certificate. If not, keep trying!
