I would argue that having an alpha male in a group, be it a nation or a group of peers, is actually a natural and beneficial thing to us human beings. Having one strong figure who is feared as much as he is beloved, who is well-educated, wise , strong and brave, who can rally his people behind him in times of crises, and protect their freedom and well being in times of peace is a thing that comes naturally to us humans. All nations strive for a great leader, all people have the cult of the great ruler, no matter your political opinion we all have in our mind the one person who best represents our interests, and whose rule we would gladly accept.
When a man spends time with himself, he comes to know and appreciate himself more. When meeting a new acquaintance, we often undervalue them because we know so little about them, once we sit one-to-one with that person, and we get to know them a little better, their true value and virtue is revealed to us, and they might even become so dear to us that we may call them friends, thus this also happens to ourselves, the less time we spend alone with our own self and our own thoughts, the less we value ourselves, and by spending time alone we get to know ourselves better and to see and judge our own virtues and sins to our own standards, thus we become more dear to ourselves and our own inner-self becomes our friend.
Walking is the most important activity we as men can introduce into our lives in order to become the best men we can be. There is no simpler way to improve the state of your mind, or the quality of your life than taking a nice long walk outside.
There is a trait that every man needs to master, in order to call himself a man. A trait so important that not having it can cause low self-esteem, doubt, lack of confidence, or even the lack of that feeling of being a man which men get when we are in our full masculine potential. This trait, or rather a skill which can, though through great difficulty, be learned, is how to control your frame. Frame control is one of the first thing I would urge young man to learn as they begin their life journey into masculinity and adulthood. It's such a basic skill relating to the masculine virtues and being the best man you can be, that many other important skills and traits would be almost impossible to master without previously mastering this skill. Not being able to control one's frame can also be damaging to a man's mindset, since being thrown out of your frame can cause significant negative effects on your sense of confidence.
