This website is clearly under construction. A work in progress. Just. Like. Me. What, you too?
If we took you, the you you are right now, and we took out all the stuff that really wasn't you, the stuff that was never you, just something you thought you had to be.
What would be left? What would the real stuff look like? Because that's the secret sauce. The real you. How far is the gap between who you are and who you should have been? How close are you to who you thought you'd be?
How close are you to the dreams you had as a kid? How close are you to the dreams you have now? What's on your mind? In this input only world (consume, consume, next!), what's your output (give, give, legacy)?
What will be left when you leave this place? What's the residue? Are you leaving it a better place? Do we have it all wrong? The things we are chasing. Stressing about. Growing older for. Do we have it all wrong?
And what's it look like, when you are at your most beautiful?
There's a lot of gibberish Latin here, no? Don't worry, I promise things will get better. Starting with this site. Soon.
Until then, know this: If there's a word to define me (and I've been looking for this word for a long time, to distill my life into it's essential spirit), it's actualization.
I've been a lawyer, economic developer, and leader. Trying on a thousand vocations. Always seeking growth, challenge, and fire. Adding. Subtracting. Lighting it all up to start again amongst the ashes.
To remember the first principles. To get back to the core.
I play the long game now. Concentrating on the eternals. I'm a dad, husband, and entrepreneur. And I know me. It took a while. I'm Alex Chung. I write. I lift. I grow. And I'm trying, Ringo, I'm trying real hard, to be the shepherd. All in. All the time. Actualization.
