When is it time to give up?

I have had my CDL for a couple of months now and have been out of my 3 week training period and already I’m feeling very discouraged. Before my current company I drove a switcher for a small yard and earned a reputation for bumping trailers. This was before I got my cdl, when I had my permit. Unfortunately I was removed from switcher because I knocked over a concrete pole in the lot the week I got my cdl in the mail. Not wanting to give up yet I switched companies about a month and a half ago. In that time I ran over 2 stop signs (city driving) and already lost my safety incentive for 3 months due to scraping my brush guard against a concrete barricade making a left turn pulling out a trailer right next to a wall. Today though has made me wonder if I made a poor career choice. My gps kept messing up, took my down a non truck route, and in trying to get out of the area I ripped out a tv cable, thankfully it wasn’t the main power cable. My question is, when is it time to say I gave it my best but trucking isn’t the job for me? Ironically enough I haven’t had any problems backing anywhere just with everything else. Am I being too hard on myself? Are these the things that all truckers do at first? Right now I’m feeling defeated and hopeless. I really wanted this career to work
