I find the concept that anyone can just become an alpha male over-night, pretty ridiculous. There's a ton of articles on the net about "how to be an alpha male" and other bs but the truth is real leaders are born that way. in the sense that they are born with the talent to be pack leaders, then grew up spending a large portion of their lives actually being leaders and acquired the experience of being an alpha male.
I have seen some people around me read some articles on the net about being alpha males, becomes a bit dellusional then attempts to suddenly become the leader of their friendship group, then get shot down and dismissed because they spent their entire lives following orders and getting bossed around, and don't actually have any leadership abilities.
For example, I grew up being the leader of my friends, not because I always felt like being the boss, but because most people simply don't have any initiative. If I wanted to do something or go somewhere, I have to pretty much do it myself or give someone the command to do it. You see examples of this all the time, a group of friends catches up for dinner, but nobody knows where to go eat and the entire group wastes a ton of time deciding until someone puts his foot down. What I'm trying to say is that alpha males are the way they are in their adulthood because they spent their entire childhood/teenagehood leading people around because the others don't have the initiative and alpha male mindset. As a result of me leading all my friends since I was a kid, it's become second nature now for me to continue being a leader in adulthood. I have seen a friend of mine read about alpha male concepts on the internet, then he tries to become more bossy and it's actually quite humorous to see him (an uncharismatic geeky kid) try to dominate others. It gets a bit annoying sometimes but the alpha of the group can easily put him back in place through experience lol.
- Adult alpha males become leaders because they are born with the talent to lead, and they obtained experience as leaders through leading others for their whole life. Therefore it is only natural that they are alpha because they have refined the art of leading through innate nature and decades of experience.
- Random beta male cannot just read some articles on the net and overthrow real alpha males overnight, or even in the time of a few months and years. Because it's unnatural
