It’s a new year, and the resolutions you make will have a direct impact on your beta male status. Now’s the time for every beta male out there to start making changes to be just a little bit better in 2016.

What resolutions can you make?

Let’s take a look at nine important resolutions we suggest that every beta male makes after reading this article!

Resolution #1 – Turn Off Your Inner Critic

Beta males are usually not confident and unwilling to listen to other people. They often criticize themselves as well as others, and this leads to a pessimistic mindset.

Therefore, you need to turn off your inner critic as soon as possible! You need to take charge of your negative emotions and start rewarding yourself for even small things you accomplish.

Pay attention: Although it will take some time, you need to make this first (and most important) step if you want to become an alpha version of yourself!

Resolution #2 – Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Do you know what our comfort zone allows? It allows us to be weak! You need to get outside of your comfort zone and do something that you normally wouldn’t do.

This can be anything from:

  • Skydiving
  • Mountain climbing
  • Talking to a stranger
  • Going on vacation alone
  • Doing anything that scares you

Keep in mind: Experience things that you would normally shy away from just because they make you feel “uncomfortable!”

Resolution #3 – Improve Your Eating Habits & The Quality of Your Food

Beta males need to be the epitome of health. You need to change your eating habits and improve them. You also want to increase the quality of your food.

This doesn’t mean that you have to dine on lobster and caviar, but it does mean that you should be:

  • Aware of the food you eat
  • Eating food that nourishes the body
  • Eating food that is not processed

Pay attention: If you’re going to be someone that people look up to, you need to have health on your side – and this starts with the food that you eat.

Resolution #4 – Get Stronger & Shed Some Fat

Naturally, after you begin to eat healthy, you should be more focused on getting stronger and shedding some body fat. This doesn’t have to be anything drastic, but it will lead to you looking your absolute best.

You can choose to do anything:

  • Run daily
  • Play tennis, soccer, football (anything that gets your heart rate up)
  • HIIT exercises

If you’re the type of person that struggles to find a routine, it’s best to start with full body workouts to lose weight. This means that you’ll be working your entire body three or four times per week to bolster your fat burning potential.

Pay attention: After you start burning fat, you can go to a five-day plan, where you work each body part two times per week. Just make sure that you challenge yourself, and use heavy weight to gain muscle!

Resolution #5 – Adopt a Specific Style of Clothing

You need to put the sweatpants away and adopt a specific style of clothing. If you want to be successful, wear clothes that successful people would wear.

You should think of:

  • Fancy button-down shirts
  • Suits
  • Ties

Keep in mind: If you dress the part, you’ll start to feel more confident and able to reach your goals.

Resolution #6 – Read Inspiring Books

People need to read more books. You read that right – read books. Inspiring books will help you reach your goals, and they will teach you a lot along the way.

A good list of inspiring books to read this year include:

  • The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho
  • The Brief, Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
  • You Are Here: Discovering the Magic of the Present Moment from Thich Nhat Hanh

Pay attention: And you’ll find that there are also business inspirational books or motivational books available, too! It doesn’t matter the subject. Just read something that inspires you to change.

Resolution #7 – Work on Your Talking Skills

Are you the type of person that likes to mumble? This is something that makes you seem not confident and sure of your actions.

You need to work on your talking skills, and this includes:

  • Making eye contact
  • Annunciating your words clearly
  • Slowing down your speech
  • Being confident
  • Standing straight

Pay attention: If you master the art of talking, you’ll find that you’ll reach success in everything you do. Whether you are in the business world or talking to your dream girl, you need to speak with confidence.

Resolution #8 – Mimic The Behavior of Alpha Males from Movies, TV Shows & Books

Alpha males are all around us in movies, television shows, and books. While you may not be able to ride on a white horse, you can mimic the behavior of these characters. We’re not talking about Brad Pitt in Fight Club – no beating up people for money.

Instead, you want to look at people that you can mimic legally:

  • Frank Underwood
  • Danny Ocean
  • James Bond
  • Vincent Hanna
  • Neil McCauley
  • Hitch

Keep in mind: Just look up a couple of these names, and watch these movies or TV shows for yourself. Take note of how these characters behave, and how they ooze confidence with each and every step they take.

Just mimic these behaviors, and you’ll find that you are now the alpha male!

Resolution #9 – Be More Social & Talk to Different People to Build Self-Esteem

The final step is to be social and talk to different people. It’s a big world, and you need to step outside of your bounds to start making friends.

Just try these tips:

  • Network with people in other countries, cities or states.
  • Start to talk to people that you would normally pass on the street.
  • Be more social, and start building your self-esteem in the process.

Look at what Humans of New York do on their Facebook page. Going up to random people and asking them about their lives has taught people the world of knowledge, but it takes social activity and a lot of courage.

Start small, and you’ll build your self-esteem over time while making new friends!
