I received an email from one of my readers asking: What is the ideal alpha male physique? I appreciate that this guy was looking for benchmarks to use as personal fitness goals, but it’s very important to understand that being alpha isn’t a look, it’s a mindset.
For most people, the decision to give someone a second chance or not is made by the feelings they have when the moment presents itself. Feelings are very dangerous things, and, devoid of logic, can make a disaster of your life very quickly. Like everything else in the universe, the decision to give someone a second chance or not has an equation that it works off of. You’re about to learn second chance mathematics.
Newcomers to the gym don’t understand the difference between the goals of lifting weight vs. getting stronger. Successful men not only understand the difference but also how to apply this as a powerful metaphor for life in general.
There is a direct and very strong relationship between your brain and the type of music you listen to. Your preference of beats per minute indicates your intelligence level, while the lyrics you listen to have a hypnotic effect as they influence your thinking and behavior at an unconscious level.
At what point did society begin using this expression as a motivator? Instead of encouraging success, the saying is only a way for children to feel good, win or lose, no matter what they actually do. It has become a poison in our society, preventing people from gaining self-sufficiency. It may seem innocent enough when applied to a third-grade dodge-ball game, but it’s not so innocent when it causes children to grow up believing that it applies in the real world, where it does not.

Society is like a chain. Over time, society has learned that it is only as strong as its weakest links, the people. Put too much stress on the chain, the weakest links break, and society falls apart. So, the rules were created to protect the weak links and make sure that the chain doesn’t fall apart.
My philosophy is simple, make reality your bitch. I’ve heard it said that life is what happens to you while you’re waiting for your plans to work out. What a waste of a life to spend it waiting for things to work out. I would much rather spend my time making reality my bitch.
I found myself on Wikipedia, researching the patterns for codependency, when I made a most interesting discovery. As an Alpha Male Life Coach, I basically teach the opposite of codependency. I teach inner-dependency (better known as independence). Here’s where I took an interesting leap in logic. If a codependent person meets everyone else’s needs at the exclusion of their own, wouldn’t the opposite of this be a person who meets their needs to the exclusion of everyone else’s? I had a huge problem with that conclusion because I don’t consider being independent to go hand in hand with being a narcissist, a sociopath, or simply just not caring about others.
