‘You have to fail, if you want to succeed‘ but how many times can you fail before it is time to quit? When do you decide that it’s better to give up than to force yourself to keep chasing a dream that doesn’t seem to be materialising? At what point does quitting become the best option?

It depends on the context and what dreams they are.

i think it depends on context, but if you want it bad enough keep on at it until it hurts you, whether it be physically, emotionally or mentally. when the hurt starts, stop, it’s not worth it.

It is never better to give up. The whole purpose of that is most people who failed were on step away from succeeding, the more you fail the closer you get, in the end, why would you want to give up and waste all that progress you made. It is all about mindset

Best option in what terms? Emotionally? Financially? Practically? Trying to learn to juggle you could keep at your whole life. Wanting to be an Olympic athlete may well have practical limits. Wanting to win big in Vegas will soon hit financial limits. Ymmv

Dreams are achievable as longs as they are attainable. If dreams are not achievable then they are not attainable- OptiWeight

Why would I give up on my dreams...
Remember the invention of the light bulb?
how many times did Thomas Edison fail?

Edit: Well.. The actual thing is a History which you should know... My bad I didn't mention that earlier.
Thanks DiddyDec

depends on what your dream is?

a professional athlete? 21 at best
anything else? pretty much never unless your dream is ridicolous like trying to become a doctor at age 60

the reality is , only you can judge what is possible for you and sometimes understanding reality will be the best for your long term happiness.
