The first step is to be confident and the step to follow is to accept yourself:
Confidence is a key trait so be confident for whatever you do and about who you are. But for this you will have to accept yourself first! Try to be yourself! Never try to copy someone else because you will never get attention in this way! Do not change yourself for others; this is one of the biggest mistakes that people endeavoring to stand out make. Do not find another’s personality in you but try to find your own identity! Yes the thing that you are lacking is not someone else's reflection but harmony and peacefulness within your individuality. Try to be pleasant and be yourself and you will stand out!
Be approachable and friendly:
Never be shy; make a difference by being approachable in the first place. Try to be friendly with everyone around you and be a good listener. Remember if you stay quiet like a wall flower in a gathering then you will never be noticed!
Blossom your sense of humor:
Bring some sense of humor in you and try to stay happy and relaxed when you are in a gathering. If you stay very serious or tensed up then you are certainly making no difference!
You should know when to talk and what to talk:
Be intelligent and talk intelligent and be noticed! Yes, if you are intelligent and know when to talk and what to talk about, then you are certainly making a difference. You should talk when it’s appropriate and if you happen to fall in an argument with someone then do not forget to respect others opinion as well.
Try to be kind:
Learn to be kind with everyone around you. Remember, this is what you want back as a result!
