Be realistic to be happy!

I learn lots of motivational words. I read lots of inspirational stories. And from what I experience so far, I always hear people say " Never give up! " or " You can do it if you believe. " But I very seldom hear people say " Be realistic. It's time to give up. " It's good when you keep believing and don't give up for things you want to achieve.
