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.</
