An alpha female is a resilient and majestic woman. She can often be threatening to those around her and isn't scared to ask for what she desires. She's killing it in her profession and has a solid group of friends to depend on. But despite that, here are six things an alpha female must stop doing starting this year.
1. Stop allowing doubt rule your decision
You know what you’re doing, so stop thinking you don’t. You won’t always have the answers or be perfect all the time, but that doesn’t mean you’re unable to make smart choices. Let go of hesitation, fear, and self-pity. Start listening to your gut.
2. Stop surrounding yourself with negative and narcissistic people
People who choose to only concentrate on what they don’t have, what isn’t right, or what’s missing are in a frequent state of hollowness. Don’t let yourself be drawn into that. Instead of surrounding yourself with people who are selfish or wrapped in pessimism, rise above.
3. Stop gauging your success or worthiness in comparison everyone around you
Your value is not founded upon anyone but yourself. Just because somebody may be living a dissimilar life than you, or be ‘further along’ on their path doesn’t mean you’re dwindling behind. Your journey isn’t going to look similar to anyone else’s, and that’s okay. Thus should, you stop comparing.
4. Stop nourishing self-hate by depending on everyone else’s view in shaping your own

Someone may seem to have your best securities in mind, but they don’t know you. Even the people who are closest to you or those who love you don’t always recognize the beating of your heart. Stop allowing yourself to be led by everyone else’s viewpoints and ideas. Choose your own track and follow it boldly.
5. Stop waiting for the right person, the right career, and right opportunity to fall in your lap.

Life won’t hand you all the things you desire. You have to exert an effort for the things you want and you have to push yourself. You have to keep your faith even when everyone around you hesitates. Don’t wait for the ‘perfect’ thing to come to you—chase it. Make yourself busy with your passions that you aren’t worried about love in the first place.
6. Stop thinking you are less empowered and strong than you actually are

You’re extremely strong and you must not forget that. When life gets rough when you feel beaten, when everything falls apart hold tight to that self-assured mindset. You have to overcome a lot of things and you still have room to build and develop.
