Being math-minded is not what you think

I have a secret.  But sharing this secret means that I have to admit that I’ve been wrong.  It’s really hard to admit when one is wrong, but I know change can’t and won’t come until I share my secret.  So here it is:  being good at math doesn’t mean quick calculations and correct answers.  Being good at math means persevering through the process.  Being good at math means trying, and trying, and trying again.

Failing may be best way to gain more knowledge

I have a secret. 

It’s dangerous to reveal this secret because its implications may mean that you change the way you see the world entirely. It may force you to see that everything you believe to be true is a false reality you hang on to because it’s what you’ve always believed, and you may find that letting go of it requires you to rethink everything you’ve been taught.
