Make a list of all the people in your life, and place yourself in that pecking order. Make sure to include people you haven't met as well, such as the President of the United States, Billy Bob Thornton, or even Metallica. Make sure you include your boss, your mom and dad, others in your family, and your circle of friends. Rank yourself in terms of their status in the pecking order, and make a note of why you put them above or below you in status.
When I did this exercise, I noted that the people I ranked above me were only there because of the granting of some kind of official authority. I honestly don't believe there are many men that would be a better man than me, unless they have a higher quality of character and a more noble ability to lead.
