Here are the most common ways to check if you are an alpha-male!
Last week we did a very controversial article about Beta-Males which garnered a lot of hate because we pointed out some truths people are not comfortable hearing. This week we’ll taking a look at the other side of the coin, at Alpha-Males.
Alpha-Males are the dominant pieces in the puzzle of everyday life, they are the change makers, the ones who shape reality to their own expectations, we used to call them Aluxers here on this website.
This article is not centered around the strongest guy at the gym or the Casanova who gets all the ladies, but instead we’re looking for someone who’s winning the race against himself. The same values apply to women, but we titled the article like this because based on our analytics you are more likely to be male than female when reading this. – and no.. we didn’t assume your gender snowflake, we base everything on data.
We believe most of you have what it takes to become an alpha but not many of you will get there and that’s ok as well.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to re-evaluate where you are in life and see if there are aspects of your existence which can be improved.
If you don’t feel like reading, here’s the video version of the article:
With that said, let’s see how close you come. Here are the 15 Signs You’re an Alpha-Male
Number 1: You are really happy with your life
Without being pleased with your existence you can’t win at life.
This is reflected in everything you do and everyone around him notices that. The alpha male looks and feels alive, he enjoys living. For him life is an adventure and he’s taking it in one second at a time.
The way he’s designed his lifestyle is mysterious and even foreign to most people, but it gets him the best results.
If you are an alpha male, you enjoy your everyday life, you don’t look forward to the weekend and you don’t feel tired on Monday, because you’re life is so well structured that these common worries do not apply to you.
Congratulation if you relate to this first point on the list.
Number 2: You feel in control of your life
Not only is the alpha-male pleased with his reality, he is actively shaping it to fit his desires and needs.
As an alpha, you are in control of almost every aspect of your life, if something happens, it’s because you made it happen.
Something about your reality is bugging you? You get if fixed right away!
You are taking action in all aspects of your life and it feels amazing to have this type of control.
Even when things don’t go according to plan, you are in control of the way you react to these events and seek to get the best result out of every situation.
Number 3: You get things done
Unlike the rest, when you say you’re going to do something you get it done.
A true alpha doesn’t go back on his word and is well known in his environment for making things happen.
He’s strategic with his time, ressources & willpower, focusing on what’s important to him and those he cares about.
He is very result oriented, as an Aluxer, he is well aware that talk is cheap so he lets his work speak for itself.
Number 4: You take care of those around you
An alpha is the leader of his pack and looks out for its members.
It’s not enough for an Alpha that he wins, but he’s actively looking to share the success with those who are in his inner circle.
He mentors others and helps them be successful in order to take care of even more, that’s how his network increases.
His inner circle is made out of valuable individuals which all work together in order to increase everyone else’s value.
Among them, the Alpha stands out as an example for the rest.
Number 5: You’re winning the high-risk high-reward game
If you’re an alpha-male you don’t play it safe, you’re not here to satisfy your needs on the breadcrumbs of others, instead you want the entire pie for yourself.
That’s why alphas go for high-risk high-reward ventures, they’d rather risk it all than play it safe.
Life is filled with challenges and everyone has their own level of risk which they are willing to take, that’s why most people will never get rich, they are so afraid of taking risks that they would rather settle for mediocrity.
If you look around the world, alphas stand out as titans of industries, as movement leaders, as change agents where they had to put everything on the line to get themselves in that position.
These people are an inspiration for any upcoming alpha.

Number 6: You don’t need other people’s approval
Living your life based on someone else’s expectations is just another form of slavery!
As an alpha male you are aware of who you really are, what your life should be like and you have the ability to put yourself in check.
Most people rely on others for feedback on how well they are doing, while the alphas rely only on data, because it’s objective. People will always be biased, they will always have agendas, but numbers don’t lie.
The only approval you need in life is that of yourself, be happy with who you are and seek to be the best version of yourself possible. You don’t need people to like you, because you’re on a different journey than they are.
Number 7: People want to be around you
A clear sign that you’re on the right track is that you are attracting people towards you.
Alpha males inspire confidence and success, two traits that make others gravitate to you. Everybody wants to be on the winning side and they enjoy being part of the group.
They want to know you personally, they want to be your friend because they believe that associating with you will improve their own lives.
Run the experiment backwards, who would you like to hang out with? Any celebrities? Any billionaires? What would your life be like if you were part of that “squad”?
That’s how you know you’re an alpha, you will be that someone for others.
Number 8: People know who you are when you walk into a room
This has to do with how you’ve been positioning yourself throughout your life and career.
Any alpha male is himself a brand, people know of him, they know who he is and know what he stands for.
You’ve probably heard this before, but a clear indication of success is:
Work hard enough until you no longer have to introduce yourself!
A personal brand is such an incredible tool to have at your disposal which will open doors for you that are closed to others.
If your personal brand is not created by your design, you will be left with whatever the world thinks it is.
Number 9: You control your emotions
A running theme throughout this article is being in control of as many aspects of your life as possible and emotions are one of those things that seem not that important but could make or break a person.
Alpha males have a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence, they control their own emotions and are able to read the emotional state of others and act accordingly.
While average people are rattled by external factors and alpha will maintain his cool, rationalize the situation and act in the best interest of his goals.
This doesn’t mean that you are cold and never show your emotions, it means that you understand the value of your feelings and don’t let them control you.
Number 10: You inspire others
You don’t do that through your words, but through your actions.
People might forget what you tell them, but the results of your actions speak louder than anything you can tell them.
Walk the walk! Don’t just talk the talk.
Be consistent in your work, maintain focus and people will take notice. Those who themselves aspire to similar goals will see the hard work that you put in and will be inspired by it. They see your struggles, your motivations and how you overcome obstacles thrown your way and they’ll take that with them in their own journeys.

Number 11: You take care of the way you present yourself
Alpha-males don’t look like slobs, they take care of themselves and the way the world perceives them.
If you want the world to take you seriously you better take yourself seriously first.
Lose the beer belly, get yourself a proper haircut and buy appropriate clothes. Have you noticed who take care of their image always stand out in a crowd? That’s the power of understanding that people judge a book by its cover.
Take a look at yourself in the mirror and see if there are things to be improved, imagine you’re meeting that person for the first time today, what would you think about yourself.
Be the type of person you would like to meet.
Number 12: People want to be you
Even your haters would secretly want to trade places with you!
This is because you are living at a higher level than everybody else is. Your life is better than those around you and you are aware of that.Your partner is hot, you’re making new friends, visiting new places, things are going well for you.
While some people will be jealous of your lifestyle others will be inspired by it and work hard to get their own. Don’t be the jealous type.
Number 13: You dominate your environment
Whatever it is that you are doing you are well known as the person who’s making a killing at it.
You understand the game, the rules and you’re winning; nobody is even close.
While beta-males tend to compete between each other, the alpha male is waaaay waaay in the lead, dominating. Competition is for losers, alphas choose to completely dominate.
Our favorite examples for this happen in high-end sports where you have prime athletes like Michael Phelps or Serena Williams completely dominating their field, while everybody else is left fighting for second place.
Who do you want to be in life? Do you even know who is the second fastest swimmer in the world?
Number 14: You are authentic
In today’s world everything is a copy of another copy. Trends come and go and everybody looks, talks, behaves the same way. The only way to stand out is to know who you are and be that person.
Let the world adjust to who you are not the other way around!
A great example here on YouTube is Casey Neistat [Nice-tat], who combined most of the items we’ve mentioned on this list to create a new genre of content. It doesn’t matter if you agree with us or not, but Casey made Vlogging Mainstream and it all happened by his design.
His style stood out sooo much in an area where people were all doing the same thing that it blew him up to super-stardom.
People missed the most important lesson in Casey’s trajectory, the part of being authentic, instead, they just copy and pasted his style hoping to get the same results.
Authenticity is a premium these days, so if you manage to find yours value it.
Number 15: You don’t turn the other cheek
Alpha males do not let other walk all over them. If someone barks, you bite, so they think twice before they bark again!
This means you have to exercise your power and play your position. If you don’t people will come after what you have built for yourself.
Notice how we don’t endorse this as being an offensive strategy, but one that should keep your haters at a distance.
In the words of Howard Stark:
The best weapon is the one you never have to fire!
But if you do have to fire it, you only have to fire once, so they never come after you again.
