How many times should you make an effort before giving up? Most likely, you would assume a number that many people will try and after that they would consider another option. There is not any specific number as it varies from person to person, since it depends on the manner in which an individual approaches a situation.
People think that they will taste success quickly but we should know that life is not a bed of roses.It takes time for any thing to materialise. For instance:- A person hacks an online portal which results in heavy traffic to the site but it might happen for only a small percent of people. Then what does this implies to you? Most probably, you will not be in this small percent of people. Then the question of the day is, how much you should make an effort before it becomes useless?
What about 5126 times- the number of times James Dyson built failed prototypes of his vacuum cleaner? What about 10k tries to build a light bulb? These figures make sense if you trust that you will definitely build that vacuum cleaner . But if you are not certain, think how you would feel if you are on attempt number 5014 and still no hope of success.
