Do you struggle with failure?
Just like learning a technical skill… learning how to deal with failure takes thought, and application. It’s easier said than done… but you’re not going to g through life passing EVERYTHING… somewhere… you’re going to get something wrong… how will you deal with it?
No one likes to fail. It’s a part of life, though. You don’t grow if you don’t fail at something. If you really struggle with this (and you are SO not alone here!), you may struggle with a Fixed Mindset. This is really important to be aware of. Not only for your studies, but for your career.
