Asian parents often encourage their children to pursue professions in law, medicine or business because those jobs are prestigious and often bring riches. But, they often forget the Chinese saying, 行行出状元 (háng háng chū zhuàngyuán) which means "no matter which job you do, you can achieve greatness."
So, don't put any professions down, because there are individuals who can achieve greatness in all of them.
Sānbǎi liùshí háng, háng háng chū zhuàngyuán
In every field, there are individuals who can achieve greatness.
