Thanks, Benjamin! That's pretty much my belief, too. Like you, I've already spent enough time and money chasing dreams based on people telling me I can do anything.

While that might be technically true,

"possibility" and "probability" are two different things. In my experience, it's better to pursue startup opportunities that aren't as exciting if they have a much higher probability of success.
