According to Jason Surfrapp, the author of “Creativity for Sale“, 90% of people are afraid to ask for things, true or not? I don’t know but the fact is that we don’t get things what we don’t ask for – including the hike in your salary, your sales or even a date. But asking simply about the things what we want is not enough. For me, it needs some awesomeness.
Yes, you heard it right. Being awesome in your field makes things better and you can get what you can ask for (mostly).
How to become an awesome person?
First of all, you have to understand that being awesome is never considered as looking “physically beautiful”. It never depend upon your physical personality, but upon your mental personality. Looking beautiful or being handsome might workout temporarily, but not every time or not in every situation. So, what are the important things can decide the criteria for having awesomeness.
My honest answer is “I don’t know” but I can broadly say about 3 important things which I experienced in my life…..Creativity, Confidence and Effort (There might be other things but for me, these are the most important).
You might have seen beauty competitions like “Miss World and Miss Universe”etc., there are hundreds of beautiful and handsome ladies compete with each other but finally only three ladies will be on the stage with crowns on their heads, the one with more creativity, the one with more confidence and the one who put more effort and finally one and only person grabs the title who is ‘AWESOME”. But don’t tell me that we are not in a beauty competition but we know that we are in a competitive world and let us take a look.
Creativity: When it comes to our profession, like selling things, or giving a presentation or being in a competition, we know there are many others also there in a competition with us. So your product or presentation or yourself has a competition. Someone, somewhere already sells your product or gives a similar presentation and that will make you feel confident but it also needs some creativity. For me, there is no “Some Creativity”, because creativity never has a limit and it depends upon your perception. Being creative by choosing a unique way of presentation can makes you to stands out from the crowd.
I think you know “lady Gaga” very well. You might have heard her albums but she is more famous for her creative appearances than her music itself.
Confidence: Be confident…. or try to pretend it. Because, confidence is the key role in your success. When it comes to relations, relations between family members, friends, lovers, employees and customers…. confidence is the key, which can make things easy to handle. The more you work to build your confidence and the more practice you put in, the more results you will see.
Effort: You will agree that no one will get success with out an effort…..right? Because no one has ever put in an insane amount of effort for something and not gotten some value out of it. Be enthusiastic, because….
“Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and with out it nothing great was ever achieved”. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
The more you are enthusiastic, the more effort you put in a right way, the better you will get at it.
“We all have dreams. But, in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful amount of determination, dedication, self-discipline and EFFORT“. – Jesse Owens
“Everyone thinks I am genetically blessed with a good body. I want to show people the real picture. I want to share my story and tell people that they too can change their lives. Ten weeks ago, I was terribly unfit and now I look like this (pointing to the fabulous picture on the right above).” – Hrithik Roshan.
There might be other aspects for being an awesome person like having honesty, intelligence and sense of humor but all these can also be achieved by above 3 things.
Do you agree with me?
Here is your challenge: decide to be awesome in one of your abilities or skills, (weather it may be writing, dancing, acting or blogging etc.) and do it in a creative, confident way that shows effort. THEN REPEAT IT.
