Be the Man: How to Be an Alpha Male

Being an alpha male is all about putting yourself in a position to live the life that you have always wanted to. It means choosing your own destiny and being a leader that is in control of himself and his environment as a whole.

By learning how to be an alpha male, you'll gain control over your life and what you want from it.

Read on for the tips that will help you become the man that you've always wanted to be.

How to Be an Alpha Male

So how can you be an alpha male?

In essence, being an alpha male is all about dominance -- not over anyone else, but over yourself.

Every man has his own definition on what alpha means, but every bit of control you exhibit in your life only comes through self-discipline and cultivation. Here are some rules of thumb that will help you gain more control in your life as an alpha male:

1. Realize That You're a Winner and Begin Cultivating That Inner Belief System

Being an alpha male begins between your ears.

When you develop a mindstate for success and confidence, you will begin to believe in yourself and act accordingly.

Whether this means going after the career you've always wanted, positioning yourself to travel and see the world, attract the women that you like and win big with business and investments -- it all begins with your inner belief system.

Make a list of the things that you like about yourself and learn to start with this internal compass, rather than what you lack. State some daily affirmations and internalize this state of mind, as you carry it into every other part of your life.

2. Read, Learn and Develop Your Knowledge and Personal Philosophy

Contrary to popular belief, being an alpha male doesn't mean being a meathead.

Do away with your old beliefs about masculinity and dedicate yourself to honing your mind as well as your body. Digest as much as you can about everything from health and medicine to spirituality, philosophy, memoirs from greats, science, politics, and so much more.

Rather than simply reading and taking in information, use it to help develop and hone your personal philosophy.

3. Hit the Gym and Start Working Out Regularly

Right now, some 25 percent of men 30 and over suffer from low testosterone.

A big reason for this is that men aren't as physically active as they used to be. Since most of our jobs today take place indoors and in front of computers, it is easy to begin living a bit of a sedentary lifestyle.

Do yourself a favor and buy a gym membership, or grab a set of kettlebells and start doing your own workouts. Make exercise a regular part of your life and take part in it every day.

4. Fix Your Nutrition

Working out is just one piece of the puzzle -- you also have to pay attention to what you eat.

The quickest and easiest way to ruin a great workout plan is to follow it up with burgers, fries, pizza, and milkshakes. Instead, make sure that you are eating quality whole foods from clean food sources, and that your diet is as balanced and healthy as possible.

The cleaner you eat, the easier it will be for your body to process. This is a must for both your mental and physical health.

5. Stock Up On Supplements For Testosterone, Bloodflow and Overall Health

Do everything that you can to shop for supplements and products that will help you feel like your strongest alpha male self. No matter what you take, it should be a product that helps to boost your testosterone and your sex drive as a whole.

Make sure to do your research to learn about what is inside of the supplement stack and how it can help you.

Look into the ingredients of each product so that you know exactly what you are putting into your body.

6. Live By Your Personal Code

While people see alpha males as people who speak assertively and with confidence, and who act decisively, the truth of the matter is that it all boils down to your code.

It's a lot easier to act the part when you are living it. Understand your mission in life and what you want from it, and set hard boundaries about anything that gets in the way or causes you to break your code.

This will allow you to command respect and get results from every part of your life. Once you figure out your mission and are ready to dedicate your life to it, put it above everything and prioritize
