Stand out from other people

Sometimes, you'll get noticed for just being yourself, if you have a unique way of doing things or a unique way of looking at the world. The key is to go your own way and be just who you are. You shouldn't change how you do things just because you do them in a unique or odd way.

  • Break away from stereotypes. If you love to skateboard, find your own unique tricks. Instead of going for a typical "skater" look, find your own flair.

Audition for a reality show.

Another way people become famous is by going on reality shows. You don't necessarily need the talent to get on a reality show, though in some cases, you'll need one, such as with singing shows. Look on the shows' websites to find out where and when you can audition.

  • Generally, it helps to be enthusiastic when you audition, particularly about the show.
  • Keep in mind, on reality competition shows, the judges may be tough or mean. Don't take it too personally, though. It's a part of the show.

Be generous in a unique way

While this may seem counter-intuitive, some people become famous by doing something for other people in a really unusual way. It could be making a large donation, but you could also just raise money in some way that's out of the ordinary.

  • For instance, one man, Si Burgher had famously long eyebrows, nearly 3 inches (7.6 cm)! When friends suggested he let people shave them off to raise money for charity, he agreed and became famous in his hometown of Bloomfield, Indiana.
  • For example, you could make it your goal to bake and sell a million brownies to raise money for a cause.

Work on a world record

Another way you might become famous is by breaking a world record. Read through the world records, and figure out if you could work on one to break.

  • Keep in mind, your world record will likely need to be verified by a Guinness Book of World Record's official. Plus, to truly get famous this way, you need to pick a record that people care about, rather than just any record.

Post a silly video

In a social media-driven world, you can win 5 minutes of fame by posting a goofy video that takes the internet by storm. It doesn't have to be anything terribly difficult. It just has to be engaging and entertaining. It can involve something as simple as your cat doing something funny.[4]

  • You might post a video of you playing a funny song on your instrument, or doing something funny in a public place. Get creative, and make sure you're having fun! If you're enjoying yourself, your audience is more likely to like the video!

Pick a talent

If you're naturally talented at something, that's a good place to start. However, the talent you pick should also be something you enjoy. You're going to spend many, many hours working on this talent, so if you don't enjoy it, you're going to be miserable. Plus, people can tell when passion drives your talent or skill, and it will be easier to become famous.

  • Think about artistic careers like music, acting, writing, or painting. Keep in mind, though, you'll have to sell yourself in any of these fields and build a name for yourself.
