Stop playing status games!
Status is your ranking in the social ecosystem.
Who is number one? Who is number two? Who cares?!
There are several problems with status games… Here are two of them:
- Who decides on your ranking?
- To be the winner, there has to be a loser.
Quit wasting your life playing status games. They are a vanity metric and they militate against the true meaning of success (true success doesn’t create losers).
One Possible Definition of Success:
Help enough people get what they want, and you’ll end up getting what you want.
The Typical Success Journey:
Part 1: When first starting out on the journey towards success, most people try to win status games because they think they will be a catalyst for them.
Part 2: Then, at some point, you realize that the only catalyst to the destination of success is to help others be successful.
Part 3: When you finally find the destination of success, you want to help a lot of people find the destination, too.
Conclusion: The more successful you become, the more you seek to help others be successful, and the more successful you become…
Final Thought: Skip the status part and just go help people.
