Be the best you you can be and make yourself proud. You can't force anyone else to be proud of you but chances are, if you be proud of yourself, others will be proud of you too.

I think the best way to make someone proud is by being happy yourself. Setting goals for your life and archive them, doing things that make you feel happy and archived. When someone who loves you sees how far you've come and how happy you are they can't help it but be proud!

Make them proud by showing them that they can trust you and that your responsible. Do your best at things and if you fail at least you did it to the maximum you were capable of. Show them that you love them and that you are going to be a good citizen in the world.

By leading by example. You can make an individual proud by acting or doing things that you can be proud of.

I'm sure that person is already proud of you. That's one thing about loving someone, you'll both admire each other. Just continue doing nice things for each other, and making each other feel good, and they'll look back on the relationship with fond memories one day.

By making me proud of myself. If you love yourself, your loved ones should be proud of you. If not, then they do not deserve your love.

You can give your loved one praises, compliments and even compliment them on their hard work or accomplishments they've done up to now.

You can make a love one proud, by not waiting for special occasions to tell them how much you appreciate and love them :) It also helps to keep communication up, so that expectations in any relation are clear. That way you can know what you need to do to make for e.g your parents proud. It is easier to make someone proud, when you aren't spending a large amount of time guessing, what the expectations are!

Be yourself! Every one is different, every one is unique - being yourself will be enough to make any one proud.

Aim to Be Yourself and they will be proud that you are being you. If they love you then they will be proud of whatever happens because they love you.

Personally, I think by being happy,doing what you love and are passionate, laughing and enjoying yourself.

Some people you can never make proud it's just the way THEIR personality is. Although, just try to be the best person you can be and the own that truly care about you will see that. Focus on your school work and or career and be nice whenever possible.

Mainly you make people proud, when you succeed at doing something you really wanna do. Make others proud, by doing something that makes you proud.

By being self content and assured. Being self aware will guide us to better behaviour, which establishes admiration.

Focus on your strengths, and think of ways to act that bring them out. Do what makes you awesome! As wonderful as it is to try to make our loved ones proud, we also have to make ourselves proud. And often, that means being true to our own strengths and our own happiness. You are the one who deserves to be proud of yourself the most.

By doing what makes you happy, be honest with yourself and others. Follow your own path and even if you find out it was not right, at least you had the courage to try.

Do something that you would be proud of them doing. You could help them with something, do your best at work or in school, give them something you made by yourself like a cake or a nice drawing.

I'm sure your loved one is already proud. You could do something that he or she loves or know you love

You should talk to them and tell them how you feel. No use hiding away your emotions, you will feel better talking to them about this and maybe they will have a good answer for you. I'm sure you already make them proud!

If it is important for you to make a loved one proud (i am not sure whether you are talking about you, them or your child?) then at first, find out what makes them proud. Then you can, if it is about profoundness on you and it is reasonable, work on what makes them proud of you. If it is about them being proud on them self, encourage them and motivate them to do things which make them proud of themselves. If it is about your or their children and it is reasonable, you can do something to motivate them to do stuff which makes your loved one proud of them, but not over push children as it can return later in negative way as a boomerang.

It is almost impossible to please everyone in your life, this includes your loved ones. People in your live will be genuinely proud of you if they know what drives you and what is important to you. Only then can they celebrate your achievements with you. If their expectations do not align with your goals then it will be hard to do. Having an open conversation with your loved ones to make sure you are on the same page would be the first step. And even if it proves hard to get your loved ones onboard, being proud of yourself is the most important thing.
