We all know that one woman – the one that everybody looks to, in awe, mesmerized by her amazing ability to succeed at everything she does. When she walks into a room, she does so with confidence, her head held high and a fire in her eyes.
Urban Dictionary defines an ‘Alpha Female’ as: “a dominant female in a group. She dates as many males as she wants, is strong and confident, and a hard worker as well as often busy. She is usually sarcastic because she’s powerful and playful. Alpha Females are intelligent, intellectual problem solvers; and though being an alpha female is more of a state of mind than a physicality, an alpha understands that dressing up or sexy increases her power in society, so she does it.”
These women are the go-getters, the women that are always up for a challenge and rarely intimidated. They are your bosses, your mentors and your teachers. Alpha females are true bada$$es, possessing a number of characteristics: They are assertive, competitive and sometimes controlling, taking the lead in every project they pursue, however, according to Psychology Today, they are also born ‘healthier, more energetic and more resilient.’
When the going gets tough, these are the women you want in your corner, ready to fight for and with you against all odds.
Do you find that people often refer to you as someone who goes for what she wants, refusing to back down? To people compliment you on your tenacity and dedication? Do you believe that you fit the definition of an Alpha Female?
