Simple Hacks to Be High Status

leviticusrich thumbnail - become high status

I want to share something with you.

I grew up not liking myself much.

I was overweight.

I had bad anxiety.

I couldn’t talk to girls even if my life depended on it.

And everyone intimidated me.

I was the definition of Low Status.

But I wanted to change things.

In college, I wanted to reinvent myself.

I found my opportunity to do so in the weirdest possible way…

By getting kicked out of college.


During these periods of time, I’d work random jobs and try to improve myself.

I’d eventually learn how to fix what I saw as flaws.

I was strengthening weak chains so to speak.

As I mentioned in my previous email: The Only Thing Required in College...and life (which you should totally read if you haven’t)...

I started a business to help students.

And I discovered that the ONLY thing that matters as a student and in life is Status.

Now, in this short article, I want to give you the steps on how to develop Status.

Before I get into it, Status is best defined as Traits about people that cannot be faked.

Most people get status wrong.

They think their boss is high status.

Sure, he or she may be high status relative to their employees.

But once they leave the job, no one gives a fuck about them.

And status isn’t really about money.

I’m sure if you met Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, you wouldn’t care that much unless you were personally a fan of theirs.

To be honest, you probably wouldn’t even really notice them in a crowd unless someone else pointed them out.

Status is not the car you drive and it’s not necessarily the clothes you wear.

Status comes down to mannerisms and habits that cannot be faked.

True status is a part of who you are.

The next few emails will go into what you can do to develop your status.

And while this email is already long, keep reading.

I’m going to share with you one of the easiest and fastest ways to develop status overnight below.

One of the best displays of high status is your Body Language.

This sounds simple…

But it’s not.

Right now, look at the people around you.

I bet the majority have bad body language.

Hands in their pockets…



Arms covering their bodies and making them look small…

Shoulders forward…

These are all indicators of low status.

These are indicators of people not worth noticing and not worth remembering.

Understand that status plays a major part in life.

If you’re a man or woman, your status will help the opposite sex notice you.

If you’d like to persuade a teacher to give you a better grade or a boss to give you a raise, your displayed status will help immensely.


In order to get an instant boost in status, do the following.

  1. Stand up straight with your shoulders back

  2. Walk slowly and with purpose wherever you are

  3. Look ahead when walking

  4. Keep your hands out of your pockets at all times. If you absolutely need to put your hands in your pocket, you’re limited to one thumb in your pocket on only one hand

  5. When speaking, use your hands to gesture in a slow and controlled manner

  6. Try not to cross your arms. And if you do cross your arms in conversation, be sure to lean in a little to convey interest

Doing these 6 things alone will make you appear far more high status than everyone else.

And perception is reality.

So by appearing high status, you’ll become high status.

Give these tips a shot and let me know how others perceive you.
