In our society, most of us follow the majority. Most of the successful people have had many perils in life, be it dropping out of college or multiple failure points. They had the courage to overcome those failures and pursue their dreams.
Just imagine the social pressure you need to face, if you had to drop out to pursue your dream. Not following the majority is challenging, but that makes you different. Do not follow the majority, take your own path.
