While most adults are barely earning enough to get by, a seven-year-old boy from China is well on his way to becoming a millionaire.

Sun Chuyang, or Mike, from Zhejiang province in Eastern China has made more than 100,000 Yuan from teaching Yoga, making him one of the youngest, and highest earning yoga teacher in the country.

Sun, who started learning yoga since he was three years old, was certified as a yoga instructor a year ago.

According to Asia One, Sun first learned yoga after being diagnosed with slight autism by a daycare centre when he was two years old.

“When he was about two years old, Sun refused to play with or talk to other children at the day care centre, and would lose his temper frequently for no reason,” Mike's mother, Ye Wenyun said to South China Morning Post.

Then, Ye closed her clothing store to spend more time with her son, and help him grow more confident and be happier.

Ye discovered Sun's natural aptitude for yoga when she first brought him along for her yoga class.

“After we went home, he said, ‘Mummy, I can do it too’, then repeated all of the yoga poses, and did them pretty well,” Ye said.

At only three years old, Sun began attending his own yoga classes, and earned his yoga teaching credentials when he was only six years old.

Sun's talent began to grow more and more, and he was signed by an agent at the tender age of five years old.

Since being signed, he has appeared on television shows, and even movies.

“I wanted him to go on TV so he would become braver,” Ye said.

And it worked, too.

“He is almost a completely different person now. He even introduces himself to people when he meets them, which he never did before," said Ye.

Sun's story is a testament to how parents should never give up on their children. Perhaps, with lots of loving care and attention, your own children can discover their own special talent.
