Alpha male behavior in nature
Watch how this alpha male corrects a young male, via calm and assertive body language. No sounds or irrational behavior.
The problem wasn't the excitement and fighting, but not knowing when to stop and act respectful.
We all need to learn how to manage our inner chaos and emotions and when to act calm, respectful, emphatic and likeable, which gives better odds for a safer, longer and more successful life, both spiritually and socially.
This is what competent alpha personalities does, they help young kids
- gain control of their inner chaos,
- acquire valuable skills,
- identify and challenge immature emotions and hidden potentials,
by responding calm, but assertive, when unwanted behavior occurs, to help them build a stable mind and make their troublesome and scary life a little easier.
