An alpha female is the epitome of class. Knowing who she is and what she wants, we all have her living inside. We simply need to choose to let her out.
You would be hard-pressed to find an adult who doesn’t know what an alpha male is, but not many people know that there is also an alpha female. Since women are not expected to be assertive, or to command things from those around them, it may sound slightly intimidating.
But being the alpha female is a good thing. When you are the alpha female, people admire you. Even better, they want to be you. What is it about an alpha female that makes her so elusive, desired, and just plain outstanding?
Alpha females possess the very best qualities of her species. Being able to turn on her wily charm at will, she usually has people falling around her to just get a glimpse, be her friend, or to date her. Seemingly something you are born with, anyone with the desire, can become an alpha female. It is about how you feel about yourself and the person you choose to be to those around you.
15 characteristics of the alpha female
If you are looking to unleash your inner roar, here are the 15 characteristics that an alpha female possesses.
#1 They are self-assured. An alpha female is someone who knows who she is and isn’t afraid to be herself. Most of us have two faces, one we show to the world, and one we keep hidden. The key to being an alpha female is to meld those two beings into one.
Although sounding difficult, it is really about seeing those things which you may consider weaknesses about you and consider the fact that they are really positives. For instance, you may be a highly sensitive individual and try hard to hide your feelings. Instead of keeping them hidden, use those sensitive qualities to be empathetic and treat people with respect. [Read: 18 ways to have high self-esteem and start winning at life]
#2 They accept who they are. Along the same lines, don’t make excuses for who you are, be proud of your personality and the things you offer to people. If you are constantly thinking you aren’t good enough, it shows to the people around you.
It is hard to convince people to like you when you don’t quite like yourself. Similar to being a salesman who doesn’t believe in the product they sell, success is going to be difficult.
#3 They know what they want. The key to being an alpha female is that there are no mincing words. She says what she wants, and she wants what she says. Very few people in life both know what they want and the road that they need to take to get there. Being put together, an alpha female has a plan, is ready to execute it, and continues to grow with each new day.
#4 They don’t sweat the small stuff. Women are creatures of habit. We spend a whole lot of time worrying about one thing or another. An alpha female prioritizes what is important in life and what is not. Unlike most of us, she doesn’t waste time worrying about things that may or may not happen. Instead she focuses on those things well within her control.
We all know worrying is a useless waste of our mind power, gaining control over it is something that not everyone can do. [Read: How to stop overthinking: 11 strategies for more peace]
#5 They are attractive to others. An alpha female doesn’t have to be a 10. Although probably not a two, it isn’t really about her looks as much as it is about the way she carries herself and presents herself to the world.
