Subject: "Never say die!" ???

Are there any thoughts about how one best can decide whether to push on through obstacles toward some desired goal, or to abandon its pursuit?

Master's "How to Find A Way to Victory", and other talks & writings ("Two Frogs in Trouble", etc.) teach "Never say die!"

However, down-to-earth practacality, the general processes of living organisms, complaints from family members, etc., seem to show that it's sometimes necessary to adaptively alter course.

In my own particular case, there is a livelihood goal I've ardently pursued for over 10 years, applying continuous will, time, money, etc. I still vitally desire to move toward its achievement. However, money is exhausted, time is running out, and after all this time progress seems scant. How best to decide whether to "never say die" or to give it up? Sometimes it seems like idealism fails life's reality test. Discussion invited.
