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.
