If you’re not Michael Ross with a photographic memory and unbeatable skills at law, the chances are that you will not get noticed very often. Maybe perhaps even Mike Ross wouldn’t get noticed if it weren’t for an equally competent Harvey Specter to discover him.
Was that too real for you? Well, it better be. Be it success in your workspace, in your family life, or as an individual, it all boils down to whether you are seen or not, whether people notice you or not!
Be the inspiration!
But while many find it difficult to stand out from all the monotony for even once in their lives, some people live their entire lives as illumination for others.
Being handsomely rugged is not the only thing. No! Getting noticed is not just about making it big and becoming famous or even about wearing the right outfits as a model. It is merely about getting those adoring looks more than anyone else (wink).
Consistency is the key. If you continue to be yourself and continue to get the little things right, getting noticed is no big deal. So, for all you male models out there looking to get noticed today, be it for your promotion, for your love or any other thing, here is what we have for you:
Dress to kill
Please, not literally, just with your looks would work too! If you’re not already bored listening to this, here it is again: dress to impress. Just getting up in the morning and walking to work in that shabby old shirt and worn out plated trousers is not going to cut it.
Why? Isn’t it somewhat shallow to judge someone on how they dress? While we may want to sympathize with you over your laziness to dress aptly, we surely do! The fact is that your dressing and your posture work together to influence other people’s judgment of you, be it consciously or unconsciously. And we aren’t just bluffing on this one, and the research by Research gate proves it.
So, when you get up to go to the gym, make sure you have the right attire for maximum effort, and when you go for an interview, make sure you have the right suit to impress.
But if you thought dressing is all about what you wear, it really isn’t. Equally important is how you smell. And smelling good is not just about getting noticed, but also about your own moods and performance. Research by Scientific American clearly shows scents affect these two.
If you get it right every time, we guarantee you are going to get noticed.
Getting noticed might not be as tricky if you do not draw the line somewhere. Getting noticed is not the only priority; getting noticed for the right reasons is. That is why you should learn to adapt to situations. That is what we mean by context.
But that is not all that context is about. Context is also about understanding where you are and what makes a difference in that surrounding. Your position, for instance, as a CEO, will dictate what you should speak out on and what you shouldn’t. If you are a guy that loves the gym, understand that your gym theories will not do much in a book club.
It sounds simple; it is not. So, if you find yourself thinking twice before talking on a topic, it is always great to not talk about it.
Build your Personality
If there is one feature that will get you noticed immediately, particularly among women, it is your personality. And we do not say this lightly. While most men are perceived to be tough and aggressive with no regard for feelings, having a personality really breaks that norm.
We know your next question: How does one even develop a personality? And what also is a good personality?
Well, that is highly subjective. There are several diverse types of personalities and several different tests to explore that personality. Still, the fact of the matter is that there is a threshold for what you could call great personalities.
And while several different character traits might contribute to such a threshold, empathy is one that is the most weighted. And research shows that empathy comes from reading. So, pick up those books and get reading.
Put on Nice Shoes
As a man, you don’t just have to care about wearing the right pouch underwear. One of the first things that anyone will ever compliment you on is your choice of shoes.
But wait, that’s not just about shoes, is it? Of course not. There is more. Research by Psychology Today shows that you are judged on by others based on the shoes that you wear. So, if you were trying to do anything, as you know, get noticed, you must have shoes that stand out.
But you know what stands out the most in a man? His willingness to learn and invest in his own self. And if you think it does not show, believe us, it does.
It shows when you shine with your work in your office, it shows when you look great because you are fit, and it shows when you take on challenges head-on. So, being self-motivated and valuing yourself is a trait that will always bring out people to notice you.
Getting noticed as a male model may not always be easy. Getting noticed will often be something that you find yourself trying too hard to do. It is at these moments that you must remind yourself not to try too hard.
As long as you stay true to yourself and keep going with the good work, we guarantee you will be in people’s good books.
