Some of the most famous YouTubers rake in millions of dollars every year; a number of Instagram influencers get paid thousands of dollars for a single Instagram post alone. The truth is, you can become the next big thing—once you’re willing to put in the work, that is.
Parents often advise their children to pursue “secure” paths; becoming a lawyer or a doctor is a “safe” bet. When children express that they would like to pursue careers like acting or singing, many parents frown. Why? They just can’t imagine their child becoming the next big thing and even if there’s a slightest possibility, in their minds, that just might take too long.
If a child is gifted, support them.Even if it costs you an arm and a leg! Like they say, “Later will be greater.”
Don’t get me wrong: there is nothing wrong with a child becoming a lawyer, nurse, or teacher. However, if your child would like to take another path (if they would like to become a soccer star for instance) then you should support them 100%.
There are other great careers out there. One doesn’t have to become an actress or singer to bring in a healthy amount of money. If your child wants to become an astronaut or architect for instance, that too is more than OK!
If you’re looking to become the next big thing, then the first place you should look is inside of you; know that you have what it takes to become successful.
PewDiePie, YouTube’s biggest star, recently received an award from YouTube for hitting the 100 million mark. As you can guess, he’s bringing in thousands of dollars every year. But it all started with “three or four” viewers nine years ago. Back then, he never guessed that he’d be the most subscribed YouTuber today! After all, millions of people were using the platform already—but it happened. Here’s what PewDiePie had to say about his first video: “It wasn’t good, it wasn’t engaging, it wasn’t even original, but I loved it. It took so many uploads just for me to hit 100 subscribers.”
So there you have it: find something you love and pursue it.
Have a good weekend guys.
