How to be awesome - easy ways to boost your awesomeness
I think I'm awesome. Some might disagree with me, but I still think I'm awesome, and that's all that matters. If you stumbled upon this article/hub is because you have probably asked yourself "how can I be awesome?" or "Do I have what it takes to be awesome?". And here I am, typing away in my keyboard, telling you that you are, indeed, awesome. If you don't feel that way right this moment, let me tell you, you have everything you need to be awesome.
What is awesome?
Much like the word "success", "awesome" has different meanings for everyone. For example, I think Kurt Vonnegut is awesome because he knows how to get strong messages across while being entertaining. Yet, some people despise his writings and some even find them boring. But as long as I think he's awesome, it doesn't matter what others might think.
What I'm trying to tell you is that you set up the definition of awesome. The moment you start letting someone else define it for you, you stop being awesome and you become one of the flock.
We are all born with a sense of awesomeness. Sadly, as we grow older, we tend to let others tell us what awesome is, and if we don't fit the description of what they want from us, then we are put down and made to feel ashamed of who we are.
Reclaim your awesomeness! Go back and find your definition of awesomeness. You will notice it is still there...
Who do you admire? Why do you admire them? That may be your definition for awesome.
Being awesome is being true to who you are. It means not concealing yourself for fear of being embarrasing or inadequate. It means being proud of who you are, which takes me to my second point...
Being awesome requires some work
Once you have your definition of awesomeness set, get to work! Awesomeness includes working on your belief of what is awesome and doing things that will make you proud of yourself to keep your self-esteem up high. Here's a secret: awesomeness fuels on high self-esteem. If your self esteem is low, you will starve your awesomeness and it will die. Keep your self-esteem high by doing things that you can take pride on.
So let's say you think Jimmy Hendrix is awesome because he was a great (awesome) guitar player. And your definition of awesomeness revolves around music. Then, get working! Learn to play the guitar, or if you already play it, improve your techniques or compose some crazy songs. Do something that will make you proud of yourself. This will increase your awesomeness a notch.
Awesome is a way of living
Awesome is how you perceive yourself. The perception you have of yourself will be the perception others have of you. So if you think you're worthless, others will see you as such. But if you think you're awesome, people will see your confidence and, chances are, they will also think you're awesome.
The main point is that awesomeness is in you. Others can only see what you perceive. Don't think that some are born awesome and some are born average. Everyone can be awesome! You have what it takes, now go get to work!
