Alpha Dog and Top Dog are two phrases we here quite often-phrases you might hear or use as part of your everyday life.

What is a top dog?  Someone who is better than someone else?  Interesting thought really…thinking “who is better than anyone else?”  So can we define that thought? Is it someone who has more skills, a better life, better looking or just more stuff?

So how do we get to the point where we may not feel good about ourselves?  Do we make unrealistic comparisons to other people around us or the people  in advertisements in magazines or television?  How do we get there?

Really, we allow ourselves to get there by allowing other things, people and events to have power over us.  We allow them to hurt us or hassle us.  We allow these things to control our minds, bodies, and emotions.

When we go through life, we tend to not become purposeful in our thoughts and actions.

Life controls us, instead of us controlling our lives.  This is a huge source of anxiety for many of us.

We have to take a breath.  We need to evaluate what is important and what is worthy of our time and our thoughts.

We need to stop feeling bad.  Stop letting the events around us cause us anxiety and give us “Augita”.  Life is short.  Too short to feel bad.  Too short to worry about what the so called “top dog” is up to.  So much of what we perceive is tempered with a huge dose of our own life experiences.

The only thing that is constant in life is change.  The perceived top dog today could below on the food chain tomorrow.  It is, what it is.

And  remember you decide what makes you happy or sad.  You decide what your attention to.  In the end, you decide how to live your life.  Just you.
