I applaud your effort but most of them will probably experience burnout eventually, regardless of your advice. Hitting a brick wall is actualy quite good if you know how to handle it. Propper handling will increase experience and knowledge of what works and what doesn't. The other side of the coin is probably best described by the animated gif I posted before; that kind of result should of course be avoided.

I am no stranger to breaking keyboards and damaging screens, unfortunately. 🙄
