Alex Chung's book, Highest Success

I am Alex Chung.
Dad, husband, et al.

I used to be a hoarder of accomplishments. But I’m not what you’d call an overachieving Asian (sorry Mom and Dad). I mean, from a credentials standpoint, you could say I did alright. I own a Juris Doctorate in a frame somewhere (my reason to move to California). I’m a licensed attorney (the only way I could stay there). A nationally certified firearms instructor (just to see if I could). A published author (thanks for buying, fam). Corporate executive (I hate collared shirts). Entrepreneur (ever hear of the Internet? Gonna be big). Even a marketer (do you even brand, bro?).

Truth is, I was and am blessed, to have dream job after dream job, only to wake up realizing time and time again, they just were not for me.

Why?

Because I wasn’t being true. I hit my limit of growth in every past path because I was on them for the wrong reasons. Salaries. Car allowances. Expense accounts. Corner offices. Power. Titles. Titles. Titles (check out this business card, though). Sure, my parents were proud but I was breaking out in my 30s from wearing the wrong type of clothing (dress shirts make my neck itch).

So I got out. I konmaried it. Thanked it for its time and sent it on its way. Again and again. I got out. I got free. But then what?

Eventually, and it took a long time, I found my in.

My favorite titles are Dad and Husband. The realest me is the true me. Absent titles, and at my core, I’m just a Korean guy who lifts weights, believes in infinite progress, and puts his family first (not in that order). I’m a hustler from New York City, a dude from Northern California, and a man softened and hardened by the Midwest (and one memorable year in the South).

All of that to say, there is so much more say. How about you? What would you put here?

I wish I could tell you I have it all figured out, but I have to be real.

I can only tell you what I learned. My truths. I know my all-ins. And besides the obvious ones, I have a big dream called Actualization, and it is coming true. If you want to know more, keep on reading. If not, this is where we part.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
