What exactly is the “Alpha Mentality”?
I want you to think of a time in your life where you felt the true weight of this world without knowing how long you will be able to bear it. Everything began to hurt and your mind began to panic. A lot of the time when we are going through these trials – it feels like the obstacle in front of us is never ending. And we don’t even know where to begin to tackle it all. The weight of the world truly feels like it’s on our shoulders.
I don’t know about you, but these are the times in my life where I truly appreciate what this life has to offer. Without the bad, we never truly appreciate the beauty in life that surrounds us every day. Some days seem so cloudy and we stray off our path. I believe strength comes from our life’s hardest trials. It’s what builds us, and molds us to be the individuals we are right now.
The Alpha Mentality is bred through your hardships, through trials that God puts you through – not because he wants to make you feel negative or to “take” anything away from you. I believe every trial we face and everything we are put through – we are put through because God knows we can handle it. I don’t believe our lives ever really become easier. Hell, I believe life gets harder and harder every day we live, and every year we live through. But the difference between us then, and us now, is that we are stronger than we were yesterday, whether you truly feel that way or not.
Now.. back to that time in your life where you felt the weight of the world on your shoulders:
The person who you used to be in that time thought it was probably the hardest test God has put you through. You probably questioned with all of your might “WHY… why does this have to happen to me?”
The person you are in this moment, right now, could have probably handled that situation with so much more resilience than you probably even thought you had in that younger version of yourself. All of those hardships you’ve been through, all the pain you’ve felt in your life that you “couldn’t handle”, all of that relates to your strengths. The strength you found in those dark times, the clarity you found when things were cloudy, and the flame that you felt when you stopped feeling so God damned tired of feeling so fucking tired and helpless – THAT is your Alpha Mentality.
The Alpha Mentality is bred from all of our fears and heartaches – because without it we wouldn’t be the strong minded individuals that we are today.
Steel forges steel. This Avg to Alpha movement and this pack that we have now, is a way for us to sharpen each other. To motivate each other. To spread a better mentality. A better way to see things – not in the darkness that clouds so many minds in this world; but to find that fire within ourselves to keep trucking along. Left foot. Right foot. And sometimes we don’t know where the hell we’re going. But we’re going. And we’ll get there. And we’ll get through this. And we will come out more of an Alpha than we ever thought we could be.
Whatever hardship you are facing or will face; I just want you always remember one thing:
While we are suffering, it is difficult to truly see the end to a dark tunnel. But time does not stop. All you have to do is keep moving forward. Because no matter what, at the end of the day, we are still here. Even after all we’ve endured, we are still here – and with this movement we can spread this Alpha Mentality. You are stronger than you will ever know, and sometimes it takes a reminder from a like minded individual to remind you that you ARE a bad ass mother fucker. You CAN handle this, and you WILL get through it.
Embrace the suck.. and through the ashes you will rise so much higher than you ever thought possible.
You already have an Alpha Mentality. Now you just have to remind yourself of that.
