When to stop trying?
« on: September 23, 2015, 05:50:38 PM »
Should we continue to try if we failed many times on a certain thing and find it more and more difficult to do it, or does it mean it is not for us? What should our attitude be? When should we stop trying?

Depends on the thing.
If its skydiving, then, yeah, best to give up.
If its a passion, then fight on. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again.
I recall hearing something along the lines of  "if you aren't good at something after one hundred tried then give up." But that's more for things learning to knit, swing a sword, juggle chainsaws or some interesting combination there of.
Keep on keeping on. :)
