You want it all. Awesome friends, killer grades, a stellar reputation,
mega bucks, maybe even a boy to think you’re as amazing as you really are.
Well, here’s our cinchy guide on how to get it all (and more) this year. And
you know what? It’s pretty darn easy.
Be honest. Because no one
likes a kiss-up.
Lose the filler. “Like,” “um”
and “you know” are garbage that your mouth spews when your brain is coming up
with something else to say. Instead of saying them, take a slow breath instead.
Much more mature.
Forget feeling self-conscious. Trust
us, you’ll have way more fun rocking on with your silly self.
Speak up. Especially when
you’re the new girl (or there’s a new girl looking for a friend).
Challenge yourself. Playing
it safe is easy, but taking risks can be mega rewarding.
Ditch the drama. Your gals
are trash talking again? Check out—it’s not worth your time or energy.
Go solo. Join clubs, start a
business, explore a new interest—do the things the person you want to be would
Say no. Overloading your
schedule will make you feel overtaxed and resentful. You’ll do a better job on
everything if you limit yourself.
Listen to what others have to
say. Zip those lips and just listen. It will make other people feel valued—and
make you seem like the interested person you are.
Have a signature. From a
scent to a hairstyle to a sign-off, be 100-percent Y-O-U.
How are you gonna rock 2014?
