Do you come on too strong?

Do you ever feel that you come on too strong? Or, perhaps you have a dear friend who is just a bit too pushy. It could be that some one’s "Alpha Bitch" is out of control!

Taming Your Alpha Bitch: How to Be Fierce and Feminine (and Get Everything You Want!) by Rebecca Grado and Christy Whitman may be just the book you need to get a handle on all the difficult Alpha women in your life – including yourself. 

Grado is an experienced psychotherapist, and Whitman is a certified "Law of Attraction" life coach. The book leans heavily on the principles found in the popular book and film, The Law of Attraction. It offers strategies for dealing with negative behavior. The authors have also included numerous quizzes that can help readers pinpoint self-sabotaging Alpha Bitch behavior. Taming Your Alpha Bitch is a quick read that offers practical tips.
Here is some advice from the authors:
 
You may not realize it, but the habits and attitudes that have helped you achieve success to date, may be holding you back from creating your greatest desires — including your ideal body.
 
Most women today believe that to get ahead they have to have a tough, forceful, nose-to-the-grindstone approach to life. In addition, while there may be some outer gains to these hyper-intense ways, the reality is that this constant state of pressure wreaks havoc on our bodies.
 
Being, what the authors affectionately refer to as an Alpha Bitch puts us in a constant state of stress, and this can actually lead to weight gain. How? When the constant, crazy demands we put on ourselves stress us out, and our cortisol levels rise, slowing our metabolisms. As if slow metabolisms aren’t bad enough, when we feel depleted, anxious, or overwhelmed (the typical feelings that arise from an Alpha Bitch attitude) many of us seek fatty or sugary foods for energy. Instead of eating foods that nourish our bodies, our negative emotions prompt us to reach out for "comfort foods" to ease the pain.
 
What most women do not realize is that the underlying beliefs that drive the Alpha-Bitch behaviors are not based in confidence or self-assuredness, but rather insecurity and insufficiency. These underlying beliefs — that there is not enough, or that we are not enough – lead us to push ourselves to extremes, creating undue stress on our bodies.
 
Living from the mindset of the Alpha Bitch, takes us away from our true source of power, and ultimately determines the results we reap, including the health and weight of our bodies.
 
Taming Your Alpha Bitch: How to be Fierce and Feminine (and Get Everything You Want!) will show you how to create a life filled with balance, abundance, and well-being. It will help you achieve the success, happiness, and fulfillment you seek.
