This anecdote reminded me of John Lock's Theory of “Tabula Rasa”.
When a child is born, the mind is described as a 'blank slate' in Latin. An individual grows up as a product of an interaction between his environment and heredity.
A dose of positive reinforcement and modeling helps to develop self-esteem and identity in the child.
The energies can be channelized to harvest the best potential which will enable a child to carve a niche on the world map.
I really wonder if my little one might be inspired to become somebody like Wright Brothers, Einstein or Da Vinci, one day!
