- Step 1
First determine your motivations for wanting to be popular. Ask yourself if your desire for popularity stems from low self-esteem or shame. If it does, then work first and foremost on your self esteem and personal worth.
- Step 2
Be friendly to everyone, even people that other people think are weird or different. If you yourself are weird or different, realize that everyone is weird in their own way. Become involved in school activities and make yourself more visible to the general school population.
- Step 3
Locate a talent or special skill that you have. Whether your skill is telling jokes, drawing, singing, playing soccer or knitting, showcase your skill in a humble way. Affiliate yourself with all groups and learn how to mesh well with anyone by using good listening skills and sincerity.
- Step 4
Distinguish yourself amongst your teachers as a good student. Volunteer to help with classroom or school activities that will help you to become more focal to other students. Cultivate a personal style that you feel goes well with your personality.
- Step 5
Be yourself and have fun. Maintain your strong sense of self and individuality yet get along harmoniously with most everyone. Join school clubs, sporting teams and student government to establish yourself as someone who makes a difference at your middle school and to set you apart from the average student.
