Oprah, Beyonce, J.K. Rowling... Common factor? They’re 21st century alpha women! Alpha-women are born warriors, who fight for their rights and earn their place in this world. You may have met one, you may idol one - hey, you may even be one! Here are 10 things they do differently to set them apart.


1. They love their life

Love your life, every single part of it. Alpha women know that they are responsible for their own happiness. They don’t rely on anything or anyone to make their lives anymore extraordinary. They live in the moment, they do what makes them happy, and above all - they don’t try and please anyone but themselves.


2. They don’t make excuses

We’re all guilty of making excuses. Although, most of the time those excuses get in the way of making any real-time decisions (to gym, or not to gym?). An alpha women will have none of that. They know what they want and they don’t let any excuses get in the way. Mind over matter? Absolutely.


3. They love the skin they’re in

Real talk: there will always be someone younger, prettier, smarter and thinner than you. Alpha women don’t let this affect them in any shape or form. Why? It’s life! We’re all created differently, and that’s what makes us unique. Alpha women don’t sweat things they can’t change. They are damn proud of their appearance and they’re happy with who they have become.


4. They believe in themselves

Confidence, perseverance and belief: the recipe for success. Alpha women believe in themselves, they know what they have to do to reach their goal. And they won’t give up until they do.


5. They dress the part

Whether it’s their handbag, shoes, manicure or even friendship circle - alpha women have an image to uphold. They take pride in their appearance and they couldn’t care less what others think.


6. They know when to walk away

Whether it’s their personal or business life, an alpha women knows her limits. If an alpha woman feels uncomfortable or disrespected, she won’t hesitate to do what is necessary. In short, she’s no push over.

7. They continually challenge themselves

Success is not a matter of always winning, but a matter of pushing yourself to do better and be better. Alpha women are always learning, pushing the limits and thirsty for more. Whether it’s working on a business plan or simply learning a new recipe, a successful woman always challenges herself to stay hungry and expand her knowledge to learn as much as possible.


8. They take risks

With great risks, come great rewards. Alpha women know not to make reckless decisions, but how to take calculated risks. They take chances others aren’t willing to take to get ahead in their career and beyond.


“When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.” - Ellen DeGeneres.


9. They don’t let a relationship define them

Single, in a relationship, divorced? Who cares. Alpha women don’t let their relationship status define them. They are 100% comfortable being exactly who they are and when they find that special someone to share it with, they don’t let it dictate their every move.


10. They have the eye of the tiger

Katy Perry gets it, they’ve got the eye of the tiger. Alpha women don’t waste time wishing, hoping and praying - they go out and do whatever it takes to get what they want. Sure, an inevitable part of taking leaps in their career is falling down sometimes - but an alpha woman learns from her mistakes and keeps fighting.
