1. Steve Urkel from Family Matters

Urkel has no qualms about being himself in public. He is unapologetic about being a nerd, and he'll do his goofy dances in his high-water pants. Wouldn't it be great to be as courageous has him? I bet you can do it.

3. Barney Stinson From How I Met Your Mother

If you don't know what awesome means, meet Barney Stinson. He's legen... legend-... wait for it... and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY! If you were as awesome as him, maybe you'd have the courage to talk to the ladies.

5. A. C. Slater from Saved By The Bell

Slater is the life of the party. When he enters the room, it's time to have fun. And who wouldn't want to have Slater's awesome friends at Bayside High? Zack and Kelly, I'm talking about you. / Via

The definition of DGAF is Bart Simpson. There's no holding back with him! He's got the courage to stand up to Principal Skinner, he talks to cute girls in his class, and he's not afraid to tell you to "eat my shorts."

8. Frank Reynolds from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Two words about Frank: No shame! And really, if you're confident and courageous in your own skin, shame is the last thing you're going to be thinking about.
