When you recognize how Asian parents prevent their children from achieving the highest levels of success, you can start adjusting. Start managing what you can control, which is how you observe and respond to their behavior.
The more you study successful people and their biographies, the more you’ll uncover how different their mindset is. The standard Asian American child reacts emotionally through anger at how they are caged by their parent. They end up bowing down to the expectations set out or rebelling to an extreme.
But when you study those who succeed, like Tony Hsieh, Leonardo DaVinci, or Ben Franklin, you’ll notice how they responded to undesirable circumstances with street smarts, dispassionate calculations, and tact.
Recognize unfair or illogical behavior for what it is. Realize risk isn’t always bad. Study how those who achieved greatness did so while reducing downside by building their project as a side hustle while working full-time.
