Keith Engelhardt shares a short cast on “Status Anxiety”
Two great reads regarding the impact of the Status Ladder and Status Anxiety are:
Status Anxiety by Alain de Botton and
Inequalities in power, wealth, and status skew our perceptions of reality.
Income inequality is higher than ever with no sign of letting up. It’s making us unhappier and unhealthier and tearing apart the social fabric of our lives. The poor are suffering from both poverty and inequality, and even the affluent feel and act as though they’re poor.
And yet, there’s still some hope!
According to author Keith Payne, there are things we can do to mitigate the negative effects of living with inequality.
There are things we can do to mitigate the negative effects of living with inequality.
There are two key things we can do to combat inequality: One, reduce it. Two, exert more control over the way we compare ourselves to others. To achieve the first, we need wholesale political change. That means organizing, voting, and putting pressure on lawmakers to create new redistributive policies that not only raise the bottom rungs of the ladder, but also, crucially, lower the top one. That, of course, is a long-term project.
In the short term, you can learn to recognize when you’re in the throes of comparing yourself to others and consciously decide to choose your comparisons more wisely. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, for example, focus on what you do have. Or redirect your comparisons from other people to your own past – what is better about your life today than your life ten years ago?
Another change you can make is to your context; we tend to compare ourselves to the people around us. If your social milieu makes you feel inferior – get a new one! The most effective method though, is to take a few minutes to think about what you really value in life. Write down your answers. Are any of them about climbing a social ladder? Probably not. Consciously thinking about what really matters to us is an antidote to the unconscious default of looking to others to figure out how much we value ourselves.

Your Brain Shift Podcast Episode 6 (12/04/20)
Keith Engelhardt and Kevin McKinnon introduce the importance of culture for greater success, health and wellness, and fulfillment.
Culture definition: the customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social group. We have a continuum of cultures; our family of origin culture, racial and ethnic cultures, workplace cultures, societal and national cultures, even provincial and state or regional cultures. Each are containers that mold and makes us. There are cultures of inclusion, there are cultures of exclusion there are cultures of empowerment or oppression. Cultures that unit is or cultures that divide us. There are cultures based on common language. Cultures evolve; some more slowly than others.
Cultures at every level are environments and the according to Marshall Goldsmith the author of what got you here won’t get you there and the book Triggers, environments can be situational and most people go through life unaware of how our environments shape our behavior and our actions or influence our health wellness achievement and success or life fulfillment. Environments can shape us more than we shape them. Our environments are relentless triggers for how we behave or respond to the world. And he asserts if we don’t create and control our environment our environment creates and controls us and often as a result turns us into someone that we don’t even recognize.
