Be Awesome – Episode #019

Money can’t buy you awesomeness.  Awesomeness is priceless.  Wal-Mart doesn’t sell it, it comes from within.You can be a part of something awesome, but that doesn’t automatically make YOU awesome.  Joining an awesome fraternity/sorority doesn’t make you cool or awesome!  Yes, you may be around cool/awesome people but that doesn’t make you official.  Being rich doesn’t make you awesome either.  It just makes you a rich “whatever” kind of person you are.  Being awesome is kinda like being happy.  The poor can be happy and the unattractive can be happy.  That was my politically correct way of saying “ugly”.  Your either born awesome or you must work at becoming awesome.

To wear the crown you must be well-rounded, kind, generous, fun to be around, and inspirational.  The way to be awesome is to take a look inside yourself and work on those things that are holding you back from awesomeness.  Surrounding yourself with people you consider awesome is a good way to become awesome.  After all, you’re only as good as the company you keep.  Food for thought.

We all know awesome people.  You can just look at someone and instantly know if they fall into the category.  Certain celebrities are excellent examples of awesome people.  Will Smith just seems like an awesome person to be around all the time. Will Ferrell is another person that seems amazingly awesome 24/7.  John Legend, Tina Fey, Bono (from U2) seems to be awesome individuals.  I googled “Most Awesome People in the World” and Esquire’s list of “Best People” came up.  These lists are NOT synonymous.  Just because you’re the best doesn’t make you awesome.  Every now and then someone will do something that makes us say, “That’s awesome”.  An occasional awesome deed doesn’t make you awesome. Some people seem cool half of the time, but the title of awesome is one that must be worn all day & every day.  Below, I’ve mentioned names we all know.  Let me know if they meet the criteria of AWESOME!
