In the animal kingdom, the alpha eats her share first while everyone else gets to pick the leftovers.
This question of status is also important for people.
What kind of status does this job or paycheck bring? Or the car I drive? Or this relationship?
What does the number of likes on my Facebook post or my Twitter followers say about my status in the cyber community?
Every move we make is about raising or lowering our status.
You’ll have an easier time getting people enrolled in the work you do if you can lift their status.
