Simon Cowell wants his son to work for success

London: Media mogul Simon Cowell insists that his unborn child should work for fame and success.

Cowell, 54, said he never inherited his own wealth and hopes his child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman will follow a similar path, reported Femalefirst.

"I never inherited anything in my life, and everything I have I had to earn. But I think that`s what made me enjoy my life more. I want my son to feel like he`s got to prove his own way and I`d like to do what my dad did for me," he said.

Cowell`s late father Eric tried to teach him to appreciate everybody, no matter what job or position they hold.

"He once said to me, `You`ve got to realise that everyone around you has a sign on their forehead that says Make Me Feel Important`. I`ve always remembered that.

"You`ve got to understand that the guy who holds the door open is as important as the producer or the director, because it`s a job. I think that was the best piece of advice I was ever given."
