In order to be successful in math, you have to be okay with making mistakes, but more importantly, you need to learn from them. You have to be able to struggle and not give up. My job is to facilitate your learning and if you ask me a question, I will answer your question with another question. In order to truly appreciate the beauty of mathematics, you must be able to solve that difficult problem yourself.
