Experiential Based Thinking

Instead of judging whether or not you should quit pursuing your dream based on your chances of success you ask a different question. Would I like to experience building a business from the ground up?

In this perspective goals merely guide your travels through interesting waters. By taking up this mindset the question of whether you will fulfill your dream becomes irrelevant.

Quit when you have an alternative path that will give you more growth, passion and fulfillment. 

If a new experience will be better, then switch to that. There is no shame in leaving a path that has become barren.

When pursuing a dream you have the underlying assumption that when you reach it you will be happy. That is false. 

Achieving goals doesn’t make you happy because achievements on their own hold no lasting emotional value. Only growth, fulfilment and passion has value.

Almost no popular self-help authors are going to have had the experience of pursuing a dream (like becoming an author) and not having it eventually work out. 

Understanding reality means that you have to accept that some of your dreams won’t come true just because you work hard enough,...

When you were a kid, you dreamed of having an extraordinary life and having your dream job. Your dreams might have changed over the years, adapted as your interests changed or developed, or they might have stayed the same. Either way, you must never give up on your dreams.
