So, you’re an alpha personality. Congratulations. A lot of people don’t like to admit that they are alphas because people assume that means you are aggressive and bossy.
That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Here are 10 things alphas do that they don’t realize, but should pay attention to so they can embrace their awesome personalities and shine even brighter!
1) You Cut to the Chase
As an alpha, you don’t waste time, words or effort trying to get your point across — you get right to the nitty gritty of what you are trying to say and people will either love you for it or hate you for it; but you don’t care.
You don’t leave any room for ambiguity and you leave your audience knowing exactly where they stand with you, and vice versa.
2) You Buy Into People’s Actions, Not Their Words
When someone says they will help you move, you expect them to show up and be ready to move your stuff.
You put a lot of stock in what people do, rather than what they say they will do; because you are the kind of person who shows up when you say you’ll be there, you expect the same from others.
3) You Can Go it Alone
You are comfortable doing your own thing; you don’t suffer from the fear of missing out and that gives you tons of freedom to do with your time what you will.
You don’t need to be on social media all day checking everyone’s updates. You can stay home on a Friday night instead of going to the party everyone is going to. You are cool in your own skin.
4) You Do What You Say You’ll Do
If a friend asks you for help and you say yes, you show up and give it your all. You don’t get distracted by the other things you need to do that day. You commit and the job gets done.
This applies to all areas of your life because you want to be the kind of person who does what they said they will do.
5) You Have a Small Circle of Friends
Because you are comfortable in your own skin, spending time with yourself, and expect people to do what they say they will do, you have a small circle of friends who believe in the same things and you can all trust each other to be there for one another.
You don’t need 400 Facebook friends and a little black book filled with tons of names. You just need your tribe and you are good to go.
6) You Like Your Own Company
Even if there is a better offer on the table, you like spending time with yourself. Reading your favorite books, driving alone in your car, spending a Sunday afternoon in bed watching Netflix. You don’t need anyone to have a good time.
7) You are Low Maintenance
Beach hair? You don’t care. You don’t spend time or money worrying about the latest trends, best gadgets and hottest clubs; you know what you like and want and don’t need all that other fluff in your life.
8) You Know How to Occupy Your Time
You don’t get bored. Ever. You have a list of goals and things you want to achieve and if you happen to find some spare time, you can be found working on those goals.
You don’t worry about timelines and how long it will take you to reach those goals because you know that the learning happens in the journey, and you are working on your best self.
9) People’s Opinions Don’t Matter to You
You play by your own rules and don’t let society tell you how it’s done. You march to the beat of your own drum and don’t get caught up in what others are saying about you. You know that what others are saying about you is none of your business!
Besides, you are too busy being awesome to care what others are thinking about you.
10) You are Your Own Soul Mate
As an alpha, you might have found it difficult to find that one true love, but you know it’s cool because alphas are their own best friends and soul mates.
You are all you’ll ever need and you don’t need a partner to help you realize your potential. Until you find someone who gets you for who you are, you are perfectly content to hang with your badass self.
