Are Alpha Females Happier Than Other Women?

success1When anyone asks me what I want out of life, I say: to have a successful life.

I don’t say to be “this” or to be “that”.   But to be successful in everything I do and in things I haven’t yet imagined.

When you see friends around you advancing to the next stage in a swift, effortless manner, others getting promoted, or , just seeming more productive, you wonder how they do it, or when it will be your turn. Or perhaps, you’ve been doing all you can, but still not getting as far as you’d like.

I interviewed hundreds of women as a published author for St. Martins press and have been a guest on major shows like CNN, ABC NEWS 20/20, the CBS Early Show and writer for magazines like Glamour and Black Enterprise. While meeting successful women from all walks of life, I learned that they had a secret.

The secret is… the most successful women I have met had a formula no one else knew about, or a structured way of making things happen, and not waiting for them. They didn’t take more time to get things done, they just applied more energy. What would your life look like if you did that and it propelled you to the next level of your life? It could be that new home, husband, career, baby or anything that has been slipping through your fingers like water!

Not just any kind of life, but one rich with fulfillment, excitement, wonder, and security.   That’s the life of the most successful women have created for themselves.   Madonna, Oprah, Josephine Baker, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, Coco Chanel, Martha Stewart, Mary J. Blige, etc. these are all women who overcame distraction and adversity to rise to the top of their game. They may have had a mentor, or a vision, even before they had a concrete plan. One thing all these women had in common was that they are all alpha females.  Unafraid and unapologetic.

They live from their strongest self, their alpha self. Based on my own research, alpha females are happier, are more likely to have fulfilling relationships with their partners and are more successful in their careers. The problem is, very few women are born alphas.

The great thing is that an alpha female can be made!  Fill out below to get this free report and

    thanks @maryann & everyone else (contributors, commentators, etc) I truly enjoy this blog & you all!! xoxo

    @Jub, I totally understand. I used to live in Florida, but I liked it. I just didn’t give it a chance to grow on me. It can be isolating since most of your time is spent in a car. However, it is perfect for outdoor adventure–the beach, the open air malls, the bookstores, etc. I don’t know about Orlando. I lived in Miami. But really, we are HOME wherever we are. I learned that when I moved to Miami, I was still me, still prone to certain feelings. So I dealt with that first.

    Then, find groups or meetups that have automatic events that you don’t have to plan and think about. Try for starters. It will help move some energy around!

    Saw your blog, good stuff!

    Wow, this post is very true.

    I used to be that woman, who made everything she wanted happen just by putting some energy into it. But it seems like my move to Florida (or as I like to call it “Hell on Earth”) has sapped my mojo in that area. I’m recommitting to being focused on accomplishing the things that I want, and overcoming whatever Florida is doing to my vibrational energy.

    Wow, good way to put it! Yeah, I would say they are or anybody who is unusually more successful than others in life.

    @THC I agree too many women are angry for no good reason and don’t think there is enough love or happiness to go around! Maryann, I signed up for it! Would be interesting to see the details.

  6. Ahhh, this is a GREAT post!

    I’m so attracted to both women and men who are genuinely happy people. Arrogance and unpleasant behavior holds a negative energy that’s usually contagious, so I stay away from people like that.

    Have you ever been to a party and saw someone light up a room with charisma and charm? That’s success right there. Not some uptight bitch sitting in the corner with a chip on her shoulder.
