Hey there! I’m Wing and welcome to my website. I see you have an interest in succeeding at athletics. You may also be here for advice on succeeding in life as well. That’s good, that’s real good *Hodge Twins voice 🙂 Then you’re at the right place. But before I get into what you’ll find here, let me tell you a bit about myself so we’re not strangers, ight?
My family moved to the States from Hong Kong when I was 9 years old. As of 2016, I’m 26, working a full-time job, living with my parents in a less than 900 sq. ft. apartment, and trying to save up enough money to live the life I want.
Even at a young age, I was never involved in athletics. Throughout my high school and my college years, I never really played sports, although I did workout quite regularly.
I worked with my father doing manual labor during my college years to pay for my sister’s college tuition. Working part time with my father while trying to maintain a decent GPA during junior year of engineering school wasn’t the most fun; but was definitely the most eye-opening experience in many different ways.
My dad taught me a lot through his experiences as a contractor in Hong Kong. Being the sole breadwinner of the family, my father was bearing all the financial burdens. Although he did well in Hong Kong, his lack of fluency of the English language reduced his job choices to that of manual labor.
He taught me the life lessons that he learned through his years of experience. Lessons about how to achieve what you want in life; about how to succeed at what you’ve put your mind to; about how to draw that motivation to keep you going.
The culture that my father was immersed in as a child was an eye-opener for me. It helped me see how much more difficult the circumstances were for him to accomplish his goals. Having grown up in Communist China, he escaped to Hong Kong under some of the harshest conditions.
However, we’re in the US now. The living situation is better than it was when my father was a kid. Even China is doing way better now than it was decades ago.
But that is no reason for people today to not have that same drive to succeed in life.
I see a lot of people with potential to do almost anything. Yet, they are unhappy, scared to try, unmotivated, bored, or just stuck in a mundane routine that takes them further and further away from their goals. For 3 years, I’ve been following that routine. But no more, I said to myself early 2016. I will pursue my dream of living the life I want and being who I really want to be.
So I started physical training, not the 2 or 3 times a week visit to the gym. Serious physical training every day before and after my full-time desk job. Slowly but surely, I started to see how much correlation physical training has with life’s principles. It was almost everyday that I was gaining new gems of insight.
That’s when I thought to myself: “This is something that may help others that are feeling the same way as I am, wanting to improve their lives and achieve what they consider to be success in life.” Well, I plan to share all the valuable things I’ve learned with you.
I wish that everything on this site, along with my experience and those of others, inspire you to pursue your dream as well.
