3 Ways to Improve Your Alpha Status, Starting Tomorrow
Often each arena in life has Alpha males who stand head and shoulders above the crowd in their ability to take the lead and arrest everyone’s attention.
Alpha males show up everywhere from politics to sports.
Alpha males are leaders. They aren’t back seat drivers but rather are up in the driver’s seat of life, leading the charge.
Many alpha males naturally gravitate toward the military and/or law enforcement. They even show up and stand out in many physical endeavours, team sports and other similar ventures.
So – where to YOU fall?
Well, there is typically one alpha male in a group, and then there is everyone else. That includes “beta males” wannabes, and everything in-between.
Odds are you are in the other group. That is because by definition there aren’t too many alpha males.
Don’t despair – you don’t have to remain stuck in the slow lane. You can make some changes that can start to change you into the alpha type.
Here are three tips you can observe, and start putting into action, right away to help you achieve Alpha status:
1 – Altitude and Room Control
Controlling a room and being strategic in how you position yourself is likely the most important factor in how you will be received in a social setting.
When positioning yourself in a room first and foremost you never want to have your back exposed. This is an unacceptable vulnerability both tactically and socially.
Also, an Alpha knows that an elevated position is the most strategically effective for controlling a room and he will work for a position which affords him a view of the area.
So, upon entry an Alpha will scan the room for an elevated position in order to gain the tactical advantage. Second, he will scan the exits and know the safest most effective point of exit should the situation arise. This is particularly important when an Alpha is in public with his family. He is responsible for their protection and well being and must be able to protect them at all costs. This is a vital threat assessment that all Alpha males do.
2 – Posture Power
One of the most prominent manners in which the alpha male differs from others is his posture. An alpha male has better posture than the typical guy. He carries himself, his body, somewhat differently than the average guy.
There is no slumping with the alpha male – he is upright and engaged in anything and everything across the board.
Another added bonus – although most guys don’t realize it, posture provides a way to instantly improve the body by 15 percent or more. Forget all those hyped diets or exotic supplements or secret training routines – posture is the quickest way to change the body. And it can be done immediately – right now you can improve your body by 15 percent merely by improving your posture. There isn’t anything else that works immediately as does changing your posture.
One way to simply recognize how far you have to go is to stand with your back against the wall, chin up, and put a book on your head. Step out and keep your body upright enough to keep the book where it is. This is a simple drill to get the feel of how real upright posture feels like.
3 – Attention
What an Alpha male intrinsically understands about gaining the attention of others is to be attentive. Or said another way, to be interesting be interested. You need to shift your mindset to truly become the focal point of a room.
An Alpha male recognizes the needs of others who are longing to be heard so he will turn his gaze and meet the eyes of the other who is talking. This is particularly
important when it is someone whom you are interested in meeting.
To sum up, alpha status is not merely muscle factor, or brute power. There are a lot of muscular brutes who are beta males or wannabes. Alpha Status comes as much from an inner factor as it does the physical. The alpha male puts himself in prime position almost effortlessly and effectively. But he is doing certain things that give him an advantage and an edge in anything he engaged in. You can use these tips in today’s article as you wish to get to become an Alpha!
