WEAKNESS IS NOT WEAKNESS, IT'S JUST NOT PART OF WHO YOU ARE
If you are weak in math just like what your teacher told you, it doesn't mean you are really weak and stupid. You just don't like that subject and you have something else that you want to study. It's just not part of who you are that is why you cannot resonate with it. There is a designate subject for your personality and it is your job to find that subject. That is why there are some students who just love the subject science or english, they don't want anything else because some subjects are not part of their personality.
But that doesn't mean that you don't need to study the subjects that you don't like anymore, there are some process that you have to undergo to achieve a certain goal. Sometimes you have no choice but to do something. But the point here is don't believe other people that are telling you that you are weak in this or weak in that, never believe them. You are not weak, you just don't like it. You have strengths, it just happens that it is not needed for the moment.
There are some things that you really can't do, or let's just say you can do but you are not interested with it that is why you are producing mediocre results. You cannot do everything, you have to accept it, but you can do something about it.
But if you are confident enough that you can just do what you want and study what you want but still being successful then go ahead and do it. Just make sure that you can prove to everyone that your decision is right and you will never go back. You must stand up for your decision and never change it when everything is not going well.
Some people are successful because they know their strengths, they were so focused on where they are good at and they never do anything else. Look at Michael Jordan, he knew his strength and that is in basketball, look at him when he play baseball and other sports... he sucks. It is not that he is weak in some other things, it just happens that those are not his things.
Don't be hard on yourself if you can't do things well, maybe it's just not part of who you are. You need to relax and know what you really want. You need to decide what path you want to travel.
So if you are struggling in making something work, know yourself first if you really want it or not. If you want it then go ahead and struggle, you will eventually make it work in the end. But if you don't feel good while struggling then you have to decide if you still want to continue or not. Because a struggle without love will never produce any good results.
The key here is to know your strengths and focus on those strengths, never focus on something or do something just because everyone else is doing it. You don't need to copy success, you can make success on your own by believing in yourself and trusting your skills. You have gifts still left unopened, make sure you have the tools and knowledge for opening it.
