No matter the size of the roof on our heads, the comfy bed, the "luxuries" of our life, being a teenager in 2021, is hard.
Handling unrealistic expectations, constant comparison, peer pressure, bad influences, sometimes can become a bit too heavy of a burden on a pre-adult to carry.
With this article, I want to help you become a true Alpha Teen:
Try/Give your best at everything you do: We all have strong areas in life, a sport, a subject, but being "alpha"? That comes with greatness, and greatness can only be achieved if you give your best at everything you do (even if they bear no fruit).
Stick up for the little guy: Everybody knows that kid at school, he isn't necessarily "cool", or maybe he's a bit weird, awkward, poor etc. Stick up for him, say hello, don't let others pick on him. Always know, that your actions can impact him in a gigantic way, and bring some light into his dark life.
Listen to your parents: They've got your best interest in mind, just don't go to them for fashion advice.
Embrace education: There is nothing more "Alpha" than knowledge. Acquire some, Spread some, Repeat. Remember this quote from a construction worker "An education is never too heavy to carry from a ditch"
Stay away from drugs, alcohol, smoke of any kind: Does nothing but damage, makes you take nothing but bad decisions.
Peer Pressure is not a thing: The "alpha" teen doesn't give in to peer pressure, he does what is right.
A good person: Being "alpha" isn't about being a jerk to everyone, it comes down to being respected and not feared.
