The alpha male in many species is considered the person with the highest rank, a leader. Often misinterpreted as the loudest or most-obnoxious person in the room, the title of an alpha male gets a bad rap. If we were apes, the alpha would be the biggest, strongest and most aggressive male in the group. As human beings however, the alpha is much more refined. He’s the cool and confident guy that commands attention. When he speaks, people listen. When he walks into a room, everyone notices. He is determined, ambitious and a natural born star. Not everyone can be an alpha, in fact, not everyone is meant to be. Here are a few traits however, to determine if you truly are an alpha.
Many people mistake this as being cocky. An alpha male is more refined than an egocentric guy. He understands himself, his strengths and weaknesses and what he needs to improve on. He is proud of who he is, yet humble not seeking praise or compliments. He exudes a true confidence of himself that women desire and men aspire to have.
An alpha male is someone who confronts his fears rather than running away from it. He is not afraid of taking risks or speaking up when needed. He goes after what he wants without a second thought of failure or regret.
Dedication to family, friends, work and health are all important to an alpha male. He takes responsibility for his own actions and doesn’t make excuses for himself. When something doesn’t go as planned, an alpha male is never afraid of owning up to his mistakes. He is also always ready and willing to defend himself, his family and loved ones.
When you look good, you feel good and an alpha male is someone that always takes pride in how he looks. He dresses to impress and is confident in his style. He knows how to stand out and look better than the guys around him.
An alpha male is someone who cares about his body. Having a great body doesn’t make you an alpha male, but it contributes to your overall health and well-being. He uses a combination of his style, confidence and physical health to look and feel the best he possibly can.
A thirst for knowledge is a trait that an alpha male truly displays. An alpha seeks power by improving his knowledge and developing new skills and abilities. He tries to always be at the top of his game. He doesn’t have to have a PHD, but he is always looking to improve and learn something new.
As the pressure and stress of the world presses down on our shoulders, an alpha male always finds a way to remain calm. He doesn’t show any signs of weakness by becoming panicking or worked-up. An alpha always finds a way to take control of the situation.
Chivalry isn’t dead and an alpha male knows how to treat and romance a lady. With a combination of his confidence and style, an alpha is never threatened; in fact women are drawn to him. He never looks desperate and really doesn’t have to try hard at all. He is someone worth knowing so you should get to know him. He is straightforward and goes after what he wants.
There is no substitute for hard work and despite all of his natural abilities an alpha does not shy away from hard work. He understands that success comes from hard work and he puts in the time necessary to be successful. He is dedicated but not obsessed with working and is admired by his peers for his desire and work ethic.
Most of all, an alpha male is a leader. He leads by example and inspires others to do better. He isn’t afraid of taking charge of a situation and is the one looked to when decisions need to be made. With a combination of his confidence, courage, calmness, intelligence and hardworking attitude, an alpha takes pride in opportunities to lead and does a damn good job at it.
A true alpha male is strong, humble and passionate about what’s important to him. He doesn’t pick fights or tries to be an alpha because it comes naturally to him. He is a born leader and is genuine in who he is. Not everyone is meant to be an alpha and not everyone can be. Despite of your status however, you should always strive to be the best man you can be.
