We are all endowed by our Creator with the essential rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Actualization.

Ash and Appa

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

Man, I thought I had it all figured out.

As an attorney practicing law in Menlo Park. As VP of an international martial arts brand. Even as director of an economic development nonprofit. However, somewhere along my journey of progress, I hit a limit. A plateau of mediocrity.

Why? Because my life was all about me.

I only started to grow again when I dropped the self in self-actualization and focused on making the actualization part a reality.

If you are after transcendental growth, you have to start thinking and acting bigger. Much, much bigger. If you believe life is more than a series of snapshots people unironically call social media moments, and that it is far more than the pursuit of happiness (because we just ain't happy with happy), then you are one of us.

I am building a brotherhood, or humanhood, upon the foundation of realizing our individual and collective potential. After all, there are greater ways to validate our lives, to show the world we are in fact real, than having a check mark by our names. So the question becomes, as all questions do:

How real do you want to be?

The meaning of life is our actualization of it. It is the story of reaching our own maximum potential and ultimately transcending it with our contributions to others. It is about being better and giving back. Where are you on this journey and how can I help?

The Long Game

Be your best.
Get even better.
Give it all away.

This is my word: Actualization. The word that defines me. It defines you, too. It's about getting better and better every day and way. About turning potential you into kinetic You. It's all here:
