Becoming one of the most known people inside your school isn’t really hard task. Shaping your image is the most essential step to becoming popular, and depending on how much time and effort you are willing to push into forming and creating your image it could take less than time then you believe, and the benefits could be amazing.
As stated before, in order to gain popularity you have to shape your image. This is an important step because people always want to be around someone who has a good image, and the first step to doing this is to be friendly. Friendliness is a major feature allures people to want to come and be your friend or get to know you. You do not only have to be nice to other students but to others groups such as teachers and staff, because if you are nice to them they can offer you favors that could increase your image overwhelmingly, thus making yourself look more popular.
Secondly, in shaping your image you have to have the right physical appearance. Nobody wants to hang around someone whose clothes are torn or looks like they’ve been wearing the same shoes for two years, nor do they want to hang around a person who is overweight because it is not an attractive quality. So for this step it might take extra effort. Bring yourself to the gym once in a while, lift some weights, and stay in shape. Also go out and buy yourself some new clothes. Everyone likes a person that always has fresh new clothes.
Third, you have to act like you’re popular, and when I say this I don’t mean acting like a jerk to everyone but just have the swagger of a popular person even if you aren’t. It will allow people to believe you are more popular if you do things such as stand straight and tall because it allows for a more commanding effect. Do not sway as you walk because it will make you look goofy and like a fool. Have authority in your voice as you speak, and lastly don’t speak nonsense. People who talk garbage are never respected, but if you have wise insightful things to say it will add to your image that you are one to be respected and trusted.
Lastly play a sport or join an extracurricular activity. The more you stay after school, you develop connections with other student allowing them to want to hang out with you more and build better connections with you. The more connections that you develop the more benefits you can receive and in the end making you look popular.
All in all, if you follow these steps correctly you can easily make it to being one of the most popular people in your school with minimal effort. The amount of benefits that one can gain from being popular in their school is limitless and in the end feeling popular is a good feeling and achievement.
