It’s November and Thanksgiving break isn’t too far off. You likely entered the school year with a lot of promise. You were going to get good grades, make a starting position on a sports team, and finally hook up with your crush. But, maybe now all you have to show for your lofty goals is two Ds, sitting on the bench every game, and crushing loneliness.
If you haven’t reached all (or any) of your goals from the start of the school year, you’re not alone. In fact, in most cases , people don’t reach many of their goals. Some guys and girls never reach a goal!
If you are lonely and unpopular, it’s not the end of the world. Is your year already wasted? Well, it depends. If you’re just going to give up and accept that you’re just always going to be unpopular, then yes, your year is probably down the tubes!
However, if you are committed to being popular and happy, then it’s never too late to start being successful. Your year isn’t wasted as long as you are working towards goals. Your first step is to come up with a few goals or if you’ve already done this, take a second look at them.
A few good goals to be more popular are: lose weight, get in shape, become more assertive, try out for a sports team, be more outgoing, and anything else that makes you better looking, more confident, and more social.
Next, resolve to achieve those goals. While it might be easier to have a two month head start in August, better to start in November than never. Get help with the goals and seek help if necessary. We have a lot of advice on this site and a book coming out.
So, your year isn’t wasted. But, start trying to be more popular today.
