I believe one of the biggest reasons some newbies fail to have their first lucid dream is that they give up too soon. It took 2 weeks of concentrated commitment before I had my first lucid dream. I find the pay-off extraordinary and horizon-expanding!
Does anyone else have an idea as to why some newbies fail to experience their first lucid dream?
Personally I feel a big problem in getting people motivated enough to eventually achieve a lucid dream is successfully describing what its like to be lucid. It's definitely awesome reading about being lucid, which is obviously why so many people try. But to describe what it truly feels like is near impossible. As much as I thought I knew about lucidity, it still blew my mind away experiencing it.
Just keep in mind that no matter how much time and frustration you put into it, its definitely worth it.
Cheers and happy dreams guys
As far as being able to describe having a lucid dream, it really has to be experienced. I would have worked a lot harder and got results sooner had I known how amazing it was. I do think that experiences vary though and not all people have the same level of realness and clarity to their dreams, lucid or otherwise. I have some theories about that, but they are still undeveloped so pretty much speculation.

This is exactly why I don't have more lucid dreams. After I have one, I take a break but then start working more and more until I have another which takes quite a bit of focus and attention. Fortunately they are very satisfying and last me a while. I think I might not appreciate them as much if they were more common.

I'm sure its true some people only need to hear that its possible.
I guess what I'm saying is that, as awesome as lucid dreaming sounds, if everyone could 'feel' what its like to lucid dream, or just experience one, it would be far more motivating to become good at it and achieve more.
I believe that the majority of people lose interest after trying for so long while only expecting an experience that they've read about.
apps, I hear you. There is no substitute for experience!
