There are times when we stop chasing blindly in other to evaluate how long we've come in our pursuit. Have we been successful? Have we been failures? Have we been below par or have we just done fairly well. In such times when we discover negative results it's always difficult to restart because we're mentally tired, the sense of starting afresh brings a feeling of failure and sometimes starting afresh can feel repetitive.
However reaching a stage in life and discovering our odds are making it at the end is slim and beginning again with better precautions is almost the same thing, the only difference is; we're uncertain at the former and certain at the later.
In this video I talk about the sense of resolve we have if we're finding ourselves in the unpalatable situation of having to make this decision.
(Don't engage based on what you've read alone as this is just the tip of the iceberg, the video will eventually enlighten you more.)
