Alpha vs. Beta: 20 years

Recently I saw some online comments with side-by-side pictures of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos then (1997) vs. now (2017), then being before alpha male and now on alpha male stats. What a difference aging powerfully makes ! Aging for some CEOs is a blessing, as life turns them from unremarkable, some might say sheep, to powerful men. Bezos is not the only case of  beta-turned-alpha. I also included here pictures of  Muhtar Kent, long standing CEO of Coca-Cola who stepped down last May and is still its Chairman.

What a difference 20 or some years makes in people's lives...If they can take it to the next level.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Most people that work in finance are soft as a cloud blanket. If you're soft, you're never gonna get anywhere.

What will your picture say in twenty years ? Or better yet, what statement do you make with your body now? You don't have to wear an Armani suit, just casual.

  1. I think of my body as my signature. I look much better now than I did 10 years then. Body statement: Nobody messes with me.

  2. Most people in finance are weaklings, softies. Pathetic. It's sad to see men cry when their girls didn't return their call.

    1. What you need is a rite of passage. Did mine. I peed on my gf after we shacked last night.

    2. I like your attitude. Let's hear from other alphas. Oh, ladies, do yourself a favor and get off this site before you get offended. This is now alpha male safe zone.

  3. Max said something about conquering your fears in a previous post. Conquering your fears is the way to become effective. I can testify I work with a bunch of luddites who shit in their pants if anyone even raises their voice at them. Pathetic.

  4. I think it is useful for a man to get into a physical fight one time or another. Get his ass kicked -within reason-. Office workers think they've "scored" if they got a like on FB or Twitter. The biggest downside with technology it's how it's shaped our lives, made our lives moronic and dull.

  5. Arthur, manhood is more than hard power. It's soft power also. Men have zero authority with women. Millennial men get more excited at eating out at different restaurants, for example, than their women do. They need to be "liked". Don't even know who the "sweetheart" is, is it the man or the woman ?

    1. They need counseling when "something goes wrong". They're men in title and body, not in fact. Dummies. Feelers. They even use girl words: OMG, "so true", "She's my bestie", "That is so me", "I can't believe...", "Creeps me out".

  6. The true test of manhood is hardship: going without food and sleep for certain periods. There are no substitutes for that.

  7. I think the feminization of men starts with the corporate mold up. As men become corporate mouthpieces, their individuality shrinks. They hold the line. Their parents tell them what to do. The wives tell them what to do. Going back to my central idea, their bosses now tell them what to do. It is a slow, methodical process of domestication.

  8. What is wrong with these people ? They think they just pump themselves up and wake up an Alpha next morning ? Maybe Max can give these numbnuts some tips. The softies just don't get it. This is a process that takes time, trial and error, a boatload of mistakes and losing, then losing some more.

  9. Fucktards can't learn anything unless the lesson takes 6 seconds or less.
