Jackie Chan believes in hard work
Jackie Chan believes hard work ins key to getting successful and not necessarily inheritance, he is of the opinion that if one knows the value of something, then he or she would work towards it.
Jackie Chan’s parents were civil war refugees, and he ( Jackie) began training in drama and martial arts at a tender age, starting his career as an actor at age 5, and growing to an award winning and iconic action choreographer, stunt performer, comedian. He has gained a lot of wealth, about $130 million.
So he truly started from bottom, and would not love his hard earned assets be wasted by his son.
In his words “if he ( Jaycee Chan ) is capable, he can make his own money, if he is not, then he will just be wasting my money”, he stressed the fact that the capability of a person to be successful lies in his or her hard work.
Jackie Chan believes that if his son was successful in capitalizing on the advantages he has enjoyed through out his life, then he ( Jaycee ) would not need an inheritance from him ( Jackie ), but if vice versa, then his money would be wasted. So basically, Jaycee Chan has no share in his father’s wealth, because his father ( Jackie Chan ) is pledging all his wealth to charity, upon his death.
Jackie Chan is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and he founded the Jackie Chan charity foundation.
