Beta Male Habits Need Breaking
• Hands in Pockets or Behind Back
• Looking at the Floor
• Not Making Eye Contact
To begin adapting Alpha Male habits, begin looking at your confidence level. If it is not high, you will need to
practice your physical changes often (a sort of fake it till you make it approach). Begin with your lower body and
work your way up from there.
• Wide Stance
Whether you are sitting with one leg crossed or standing up, you must always have a wide stance. This means over
exaggerate the crossed leg to be really widely crossed rather than slightly crossed.
• Take up Space
Lean way back with your hands behind your head in order to take up space with crossed legs. Otherwise, if you
are standing, position yourself so you take up as much room as possible. The idea is to look as though you own the
room and anything in or near your space is within your control. Don’t worry about looking ridiculous. Practice
alone or in public where no one will recognize you until you feel comfortable and relaxed in this position.
• Keep Your Body Parts Exposed
The goal is to accentuate the fact that you are a man by not covering, cowering or hiding your masculine parts.

most enduring parts in the room. Never cross yourself or hide as this would indicate a weakness in your
• Long Strides
Another trick in how to display the body language of an Alpha Male is to take nice long strides which are not

will stand still as you wish.
• Relaxed Hands, Palms Up
If you are fidgeting with your fingers or wasting energy by moving around for no real reason, you are simply
indicating an uncomfortable disposition and nervousness. Keep your palms relaxed and in front of you or behind your
head. This gives a sense of openness which translates into confidence.
• Shoulders Back, Chest Out
Just like a prancing rooster prowls his hen house, you should keep your chest out and shoulders back as though
you own everything. Don’t worry if you don’t feel it, eventually, you will bring yourself into this position and it
will be relaxed and comfortable rather than trying too hard. Having your chest out indicates strength and also
exposes your heart. Having an open heart means you have nothing to hide and you are not afraid of anything.
• Delegation Gestures
Learn how to display the body language of an alpha male by behaving like someone who runs meetings is waited on
and can direct the world. If you want a drink, don’t wait impishly at the bar for the bar tender to eventually come
over, rather put your hand up and wave them over like you are the biggest V.I.P in the room.
Gesture for the check rather than ask nicely for it. Hail a taxi with authority rather than timidity. Using
strong hand gestures which are assured and aggressive will insure you are paid attention to and people will assume
you ARE someone important.
By utilizing all these body language secrets, you can develop into a successful leader as well as the guy who
gets all the girls!
