With seven million people, Hong Kong is the 4th most densely populated places in the world. However, plain numbers never tell the full story. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the jaw-dropping urban landscapes of Hong Kong. He rids his photographs of any context, removing any sky or horizon line from the frame and flattening the space until it becomes a relentless abstraction of urban expansion, with no escape for the viewer’s eye. Infinite and haunting.

I think the idea of being “humble” has a lot more to do with how you treat others than it does with how you view yourself. Oftentimes, insecurity is mistaken for humility, and confidence is miscategorized as lack of humility. But my personal opinion is that the core of humility is treating others with genuine respect and compassion, regardless of who you are or what you have accomplished.
The most successful people are the most polarizing. They have absolute convictions and stand by their views. They cut through the bullshit. They get shit done.
And this is why they are amongst the most lonely and most unhappy people. The more successful a person is, the more lonely they get, because the higher a person goes, the less they are understood.
Every time I talk about me leaving Ambience and gloving, people are surprised. Rightfully so, its been the thing that has defined who I am for the past two years.
But the thing is that in order for me to achieve a higher level of success, I need to do something new or do more of what I am doing now.
If I gloved more or put in more time into Ambience, it would not grow anymore than it is now. The time and reward proportions are not worth me continuing Ambience anymore. In order for me to be more aligned with what I want to be, I have to give up some things, even if it is Ambience.
One should always stay unattached to whatever they are part of. One should always be ready to quit and drop at any moment. Because if that thing is holding them back, it will only cause pauses in their growth. Ambience has molded me into a great leader and I have learned a lot from my experience as Co-President and CEO of the National Chapter. But I’m ready to use my skills that I’ve learned in Ambience and apply them to more practical things that will bring about big changes to the world around me.
No matter how much other people describe something as “very difficult”, never take that on as a limiting belief for yourself. Nothing amazes people more than taking something others describe as difficult, and doing it easily. Its all just in how you frame it.
Every day I am getting better. Every day is a new day, a new opportunity, to live on the next level.
