When is it okay to let go of your dream and to stop pursuing your passion? Every book/person I have talked to encourages you to pursue your dream relentlessly, to never let go, never quit, keep fighting despite the odds, discouragements, failures and disappointments. Recently, I met a bright young person with brilliant ideas, big dreams and eager to pursue her vision just after graduating. She refused to take a job because she wants to create jobs for other people...brilliant right! Things have not gone too well for her and she is disillusioned and now wants a job.
This is what I told her. There is nothing wrong with working for someone, gaining some experience and learning from others, if you know what it is you are preparing for. Taking a detour on the road is not the same as quitting. You will still get there. It just takes a little longer. Sometimes you need to go under the tutorship of others, to be a worker so that you know how to be a good employer. To prove and test your ideas on safe ground, to allow yourself to lose some battles as long as you win the war. As long as the war is worth fighting. As to the subject above...I am all for it,never quit, keep going!
