You see it time and time again in just about every industry on earth. The ones that attain the greatest amount of success and find themselves at the top of the totem pole for the longest amount of time seem to be natural born leaders.

They are the innovators, the marketers, the managers, the guys running the whole show and taking control of every aspect of the game. It is their alpha personality that allows them to use the human instinct to lead to their utmost advantage, carrying them and their business to greatness as a result.

The backbone of any business is its versatile team that has an answer to any problem that may arise. That team is comprised of people who believe in their leader and his or her intentions, which is why they are pouring their blood sweat and tears to make one person’s dream come true.

A team that is solely motivated by the next paycheck is doomed to fail, as it is the leader’s purpose that truly drives them to work their hardest.

This team propels the company forward and is primarily responsible for its success, but that team cannot function without the right person at their forefront. That person is the alpha leader, who inspires the team to complete any task to the best of their abilities, day in and day out.

Never in the history of humanity has a successful business emerged without an alpha leader. These leaders are feared and loved at the same time, intimidating yet respectable to everyone on board. A beta personality is too nice, unable to take advantage of authority or lead by example.

Only the alpha can connect with a team as a companion and superior alike, which provides these workers with the necessary amount of motivation and comfort constantly to perform as if their job was on the line.

The alpha leader drives his team to surpass their limits, to act as if they are the most resourceful and hard working team on the planet. When you look at Apple and their success, one of the main reasons was because Steve Jobs, their alpha leader, propelled the backbone to become the most clever and efficient team of workers around.

It wasn’t about the money to them, it was about following Steve’s dream and being inspired by his ideas and vision for the future. That is what comes with being an alpha.

Here are the 10 reasons why your alpha personality will bring you the success you actually want.

10. You Can Control You

The biggest trouble that many leaders have is the fact that they don’t have any self discipline and can’t control their impulses or emotions. As an alpha leader, you can control yourself and understand where your boundaries are. Your charm, charisma and ability to take over any room that you walk into will give you the power you need to boost your confidence in your own self-control at all times.

9. You are Competitive

It is almost impossible to speak the word “alpha” without thinking of competition. We as alphas are always competing, even if it is a simple game of cards or getting a new pair of shoes faster than someone else. We love being winners and our ambition to always be winning is what forbids us from quitting or giving someone else the upper hand.

8. You are Ambitious

Ambition is necessary for anyone who wants be above-average in this world. Alphas want to shape the world as they see fit and take control over the way a certain aspect of it operates instead of just living in it and doing someone else’s bidding.

Your alpha personality makes you want to do more than most other people because you are so focused on creating a better life for yourself and a better world for you to live in.

7. You Have a Can-Do Attitude

The difference between those that succeed and those that don’t is their attitude. The alpha personality allows you to handle anything that is thrown your way because you are solution driven, not someone who just sits there and complains.

6. You Dominate in Social Circles

Everyone knows that the oldest rule of business is your net worth is equal to your network. Having the ability to fit into different social circles and network with them always gives you the upper hand in the business world. Social circles allow you to make connections and form alliances with people that you wouldn’t have met in the environments you traditionally find yourself in.

5. You are Confident

Without confidence there is no drive or ambition, and those who have no courage never amount to anything because they don’t believe it is possible for them to rise above the competition to success.

Confidence is only beneficial, because telling yourself you can’t do something is ultimately untrue and in no way conducive to accomplishing your goal. The alpha leader is confident at all times, no matter what he or she is faced with.

4. You Possess Charm and Charisma

People want to be a part of your success because you are just so appealing, warm and inspiring. Your charm and charisma is what allows you to get along with anyone and make them feel comfortable believing in your ideals. Your ability to be able to be loved by others is what allows them to follow your dreams and want the same things out of life that you do.

3. You are Enterprising

So many people love complaining about their problems and waiting for them to solve themselves, but then there are the alphas who enjoy the test of solving a problem. They thrive on testing their intellect and making it grow by running into more and more complicated situations.

2. You are a Leader

People naturally want to follow others with alpha personalities. When others are following your lead, they will work harder to contribute to your success knowing that their own success is dependent on you and your plan.

Inspiration doesn’t just entail telling people what to do. Leaders are trusted, valued and even idolized by their team. You need to set an example of the type of worker and person they should aspire to be.

1. You are Strong Willed

To have all the aforementioned qualities, you need to be strong willed and thick-skinned. Times are going to get tough and not everything is going to work out in your favor but it’s how you deal with it and grow from it that builds your legacy. Strong willed leaders give off the image and reputation they want to be remembered for at all times.

Being an alpha is what propels success and takes any dream and turns it into a reality. Be elite, be an alpha.
