The good news is, you can always pursue your dream by never giving up and trying until you die. The bad news, what if you don’t realize that you are not as talented or skilled at what you love? This is a question I don’t think enough of us ask. We have to seriously consider whether we are wasting time, or making progress. Most of the time, your loved ones want you to succeed so even when you suck at something, they may not want to tell you.
You have to figure it out by serparting your emotions from the craft. Be objective. Test things out. I guess you’ll truly know if you should keep trying something. Seth Godin has a good book about this idea called “the dip”.
