Adopt These 15 ‘Alpha Woman’ Traits To Stand Out From The Crowd

SimiNovember 12, 2018

10. Be Open to Love But Happy to Be Single

Recently there have been studies done on whether it is possible to be happy and single. These tests wanted to test if people could live fulfilled lives without needing a partner. These people are not necessarily abjectly opposed to relationships. They are satisfied with either being alone or being in a relationship, provided it is a good relationship. These people are not serial daters.

They don’t enter into relationships for the sake of being in one, but rather because they feel a connection with a person. On the flip side, some people need to be in a relationship. There is nothing wrong with this. They simply fit on a different side of the spectrum. They find more joy and fulfillment when they are in a relationship than when alone. This is their choice, and no one can judge them for that.

Strong alpha women are not like this. They are not hell-bent on being in a relationship, but they are also not opposed to them. They will happily enter a relationship if they feel there is a possibility of real happiness with the person. But a strong woman won’t accept a person just because they are around and willing. She has strict standards and is not likely to stray from them.

If this person doesn’t come along, she will be alone, and she will be perfectly okay with that. Instead, alpha women fill their lives with interesting people, new hobbies and an ever-growing collection of adventures and stories.

11. Take Advantage of Every Opportunity

It is not easy to put yourself out there. Taking risks can be a dangerous endeavor. You may end up getting hurt, disappointed and screwed over. But, are all bad experiences bad experiences or are they opportunities to learn something? By taking a leap of faith, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities.

Yes, the outcome could be bad, but it could also be ground-breaking and life-changing. It could show you a side of yourself you never knew and open the world up right beneath your feet. It is easy to stick to your comfort zone. After all, it is called the comfort zone for a reason. But, there is no real chance for growth there.

A new experience doesn’t come from staying home. Downtime is important, but it should not be all the time. You should live your life, not just exist. People are here for you to meet and new experiences are waiting for you. But for some, taking a chance is too terrifying.

For an alpha woman, it is an absolute necessity. They thrive on the thrill of taking chances, doing new things and seizing each opportunity that comes their way. Strong alpha women don’t dwell on the norm and the mundane. They try new things, constantly. For this reason, these women are wildly versatile beings.

They can talk about almost any topic and can find something enjoyable at any venue. They are not wallflowers. They enter a room and strive to make it the best night of their life. Opportunities are not wasted on strong women because they are always open to trying something new.

12. Practice Self-Improvement

Body positivity has been a much-debated topic in recent years. Its sole aim is to repair some of the damage that the media has done. It is this same media that bred a generation of men and women who hate their bodies. They have taught these people to be blind to the beauty of others. Rather, they strive to look like the air-brushed models in the tabloids and on TV.

The people in these images are either not real or have undergone lifestyle changes that border on the masochistic. These people must nip, tuck, diet and apply products to resemble society’s accepted version of beauty. The second consequence of this brain-washing is that some women think their worth lies solely in their looks. This type of woman things she doesn’t need to be intelligent if she is attractive.

And, if she is intelligent, then she is not attractive. Countless women still play dumb in an attempt to pander to the fragile masculinities they come into contact with daily. These women hide their intellect and instead focus on sculpting their bodies and faces to feel accepted by the media and society.

However, strong alpha women don’t do that. A strong woman has no problem with displaying her physical and mental prowess. What’s more, she never stops working on herself. She is always improving because she wants to. It makes her feel confident, beautiful and intelligent.

A strong woman doesn’t let her mind and body degrade or waste away. But, she also won’t let society dictate how and why she should do it. An alpha woman always wants to look her best. But most of all, she wants to be the best possible version of herself.

13. Know When to Walk Away

It is not easy to walk away from a bad relationship, whether it’s a spouse, family, friends or co-workers. There is an attachment and emotions wrapped up in this relationship that a person will be unwilling to let go. It is hard to move on, that’s plain and simple. People dwell in these situations for several reasons.

Some people don’t believe they deserve better. So, if they walk away now, they will never find anything else, let alone something better. But some people are eternally hopeful. These people don’t give up because they have hope that things will get better. They believe people will change and love them the way they deserve to be loved.

There are even some people who stay out of obligation. These people stick around and put up with abuse because they feel they have no other choice. They don’t believe it is within their rights to ask for more or walk out. However, admitting and acknowledging your worth is the first step to take. Once you can be honest with yourself and realize you deserve better, you can walk away.

After you successfully walk away, you will no longer accept the abuse and subpar treatment. You can go out and seek better. You can finally cut the chains that have locked you in emotional torment.

This is the only way strong alpha women know how to live. They will not stay in a bad relationship, no matter who it is. Be it family, friends, co-workers or partners, a strong woman knows what she deserves, and she expects it. She won’t allow anyone to mistreat or mishandle her.

14. Always Unashamedly Be Yourself

Expectations often govern people’s actions. These expectations can come from many different sources. For example, your friends, family, teachers, bosses and spouses all have certain expectations. Even society expects you to be a certain person and behave in a certain way. But these expectations rarely coincide with what an individual wants for themselves.

Yet people still listen to them. They do what these people think is best for them. They think the way they say we should and say what is only acceptable to them. Sometimes people do this because trusting themselves is terrifying. What if you make a mistake? What if you upset or alienate people by being an individual with thoughts and desires of your own?

But strong alpha women have the confidence to be themselves. They have enough faith in their abilities and intelligence to make the best possible decisions. They say what they need to say and do what they need to do. An alpha woman has trust in her abilities, too. Even when the world is telling her she is wrong, she will dig in her heels and stand her ground.

It is these strong women who change the world. They show the world there is an alternate way to do things. Alpha women are always themselves. They are not what people want them to be, because they don’t know how to play the part.

15. Be Proactive

Hesitation and doubt can be powerful forces. When there is the option to either act or remain stationary, many people will choose to stay where they are. They do this because “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” They would rather accept their current situation because at least they know how to deal with it. They avoid making a choice to move where there may be unknown terrors and dangers.

This is caution and it can be useful. Humans are built to survive, no matter the odds. This means that caution is ingrained in your DNA. Why take the chance when the outcome is unclear? Why take the risk when the result could be horrible?

These people survive, but do are they living life to the fullest? Do they experience life with all its treasures and pains? Or, should they maintain the middle ground where less bad and good things can happen? Strong alpha women take the chance. When given the choice between standing still and taking a risk, they take the risk.

Strong women are not necessarily haphazard risk-takers, though. They don’t go into things completely blind. When they see a new possibility, they examine it. They weigh the pros and cons and decide on a course of action. A strong woman would rather deal with the possible bad consequences than live with the regret of not doing something. Regrets haunt alpha women.

Do you see yourself in any of these traits of strong alpha women? Perhaps you found a trait you want to develop more in yourself on this list. Just remember, to be a strong alpha woman, you need to nurture your self-confidence, self-esteem and appreciate all that life has to offer. It’s that simple.
