Status Anxiety is the social condition caused by comparing ourselves to those around us. It's measuring how we're doing in terms of possessions, appearance and job titles etc resulting in status anxiety. It's no coincidence the question you get asked when you first meet someone is 'what do you do?'
This status anxiety can cause us to make decisions with our time and money that compromise what we really value in order to be 'successful'.
We’re not making light of anxiety but drawing attention to the potential affect of this condition which can leave us poorer.
