I talk a great deal about being an alpha male, and how being alpha is almost always a good thing to do. But sometimes you can go too far with it. It’s rare, since the vast majority of today’s modern men need to go way, way more alpha than they currently are. But there are rare instances where it goes too far…and exhibit A is Charlie Sheen. Watching these recent interviews with him, I was glued to the screen. I strongly recommend watching his full Today Show and 20/20 interviews…they’re massively entertaining, as well as interesting.
On the good side, the hopelessly insane Charlie Sheen is off-the-chart confident, extremely intelligent, and doesn’t give a shit. All quintessential elements of an alpha male. No wonder he bags mad pussy and women throw themselves at him with abandon (and marry him with abandon, despite the fact these women know damn well he’s incapable of monogamy or remaining non-violent). But he’s also completely psychotic, moving so far past alpha he’s entered the realm of unstoppable monster, a rhinoceros on cocaine, a speedboat with no rudder. “Tiger’s blood”, “Adonis DNA”, and “rock star from Mars”. Oh yeah, Charlie. Absolutely.
Watching Charlie Sheen (and all these deluded women in his life) over the last several years has been sad, tragic, interesting, and hugely entertaining. He’s probably the best example of taking alpha too far I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s going to be fun to watch until he finally kills himself. Because, as he said, “Dying is for amateurs!”.
