There are so many ways you can live a better life, a healthier life, a happier life or a more successful life, and there are thousands of advice columns directing you exactly how.

You can be successful or healthy all you want, but if you’re not awesome, what’s the point? Read on to find out 15 ways you can be more awesome.


Laugh More

Being awesome means laughing. The most fun, most awesome people there are laugh a lot. The more you laugh, the more you enjoy life and the more people enjoy being around you.


Don’t Take it Personally

Not everything is about you all the time. Sometimes it’s just about something or someone else, and when you learn to stop taking things personally, you’ll be a lot better for it.


Be a Friend

One of the best ways to be a more awesome person is to be a better friend. Help, listen, advise or just be there for the people you love the most.


Be Honest

There’s a big difference between being honest and being a you-know-what who says what she wants to hurt others while telling herself she’s honest to feel better. You can be perfectly honest while still being kind, and that makes you pretty great.


Be Silly

Sometimes you just have to be a little silly and let your inner child out to play. Whether you want to run through the sprinklers or play an intense game of Go Fish instead of poker, just be silly.


Be Imperfect

The most awesome people are the ones who know they’re not perfect and embrace their flaws. Who cares if you don’t like the same things as anyone else or you’re not as good at something as others? Embrace it and love it.


Play With Kids

When kids think you’re great, it’s because you are. Take the time to get down on the floor. Build a castle in the sand or a tower out of blocks and enjoy the simplicity of playing with little people who think you are the best person they’ve ever met.


Be Dependable

You can be the most fun person on the planet and be far from great if you’re not dependable. Keep your word. Be on time. Don’t let people down.


Have Expectations

When you make clear that you expect certain things of certain people, it makes you pretty awesome. It also makes people want to live up to your expectations, which leads to fewer disappointments and more fulfilling relationships.


Be Thoughtful

Send the flowers, buy the card or surprise a friend with a chocolate bar just because you felt like that person needed it or you remembered their birthday. For any reason, just be thoughtful.


Be Kind

One of the easiest ways to be a great person is to simply be kind and compassionate. Treat others as you wish to be treated.


Be Fun

You don’t have to be the life of the party, but you also shouldn’t be the party-pooper. Have fun and let loose while staying true to yourself.

Try New Things

Awesome people are the kind of people who think trying new things is mandatory. You don’t have to go jumping out of planes or anything drastic; just try something new from time to time.

Scare Yourself

You can immediately make yourself more awesome by doing something every single day that scares you. Whether it’s talking to someone that intimidates you, such as the president of your company or standing up to someone who isn’t being nice, you should do one thing every day that scares you.


Be Awesome

Seems simple, right? Well, it is. Just be you and that’s awesome enough.
