In our book, “Taming Your Alpha Bitch: How to Be Fierce and Feminine (and get everything you want!)” co-author Rebecca Grado and I show women that the habits and attitudes that have helped them succeed to date, may be holding them back from the incredible abundance and fulfillment they are seeking to achieve.
Women have gotten the message that in order to be successful and compete in a “man’s” world, they have to deny their femininity and adopt a dominating and aggressive manner. And yes, they have achieved a great deal of success through this forceful method, but they are also finding themselves feeling more stressed, overwhelmed, and on-edge than ever before.
There is no doubt that the masculine approach to success was a necessary step in the evolution of women--helping them break through glass ceilings and level playing fields. But in addition to the impressive professional breakthroughs this method has provided, it has also led to some pretty big emotional breakdowns.
Rebecca Grado and I wrote “Taming Your Alpha Bitch” as the solution to this ever-increasing problem. As a psychotherapist with over twenty five years of experience, and a life coach with over ten years, they have seen the struggles and limitations women face everyday when trying to “have it all.” Together they have identified four behaviors women often employ to get what they want, but in reality, these behaviors are holding them back from creating the greater prosperity and contentment they desire.
When women are acting forceful, controlling, competitive or disruptive they are not in alignment with their authenticity, and thereby not utilizing their full feminine power.
They are in fact, sabotaging their profession aspirations and personal relationships through these undermining methods. Thinking that a dominating, controlling, and competitive demeanor will further their goals, women often charge through life with a “take-no-prisoners” attitude. And although these behaviors may create a few short term gains, in the long run they deplete the resources necessary, and push away the support needed, for further advancement.
This tough, aggressive stance can only get women so far. In order to achieve all that they desire professionally and personally, women must shed the Alpha Bitch persona, and step into their full feminine power. (Make no mistake, this is not a throw back to the passive, submissive archetype that women have worked so hard to move beyond. Rebecca and I show women how to release the behaviors that no longer serve them, and harness their inherent feminine power.
“Taming Your Alpha Bitch: How to be Fierce and Feminine (and get everything you want!)” will show women how to take the next step in achieving the ultimate success, happiness, and fulfillment they are seeking.
