Steve Jobs says:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

Gather Sparks of Curiosity

Allow the whims and interests of your children guide you. Those little sparks of interest can lead you to great places. Read different books, take on different activities, and don’t be afraid to meet different people.

Fan the Flames of Interest

Build upon the little sparks of interest and opportunities that come by your life. If your child reads a book about sailing and likes the subject, sign him up for a sailing class. If your child enjoys playing with Lego, consider buying iStop Motion and playing around with making your own animated short films together.

We want our children to pursue the things they love to do and are interested in. Because it is a great way for them to discover more about themselves and the world around them.

Cultivating passion from young may allow them to identify their chosen career later.

Expose your children to various activities!

If you want to start helping your child find their passions, the best way to do it is by exposing them to all sorts of activities.


Art & Craft – Art classes, Museum, Pottery classes.

Nature – Camping at East Coast Park, hiking.

Music & Movement – Dance & Instrumental classes, Singing classes.

Don’t force what you like on your children!

Do not force your dream on your child, it will only cause them to resent you. Interest is the best motivation, and each child has their own inclination and liking.

They may also develop an aversion to anything related to your dream.

Take time to observe your Children.

While you expose your children to try out new fields, take your time to observe them. Don’t rush into conclusion.

Inspire Optimism instead of comparison and pressure.
