Abstract: I will discuss two aspects of this topic as they relate to my practice. First, choosing a profession is one of the most important decisions we make in our lives. Making that choice based on my core beliefs was important for me, and choosing among the opportunities that came my way throughout my professional career using the same reasoning equally important. Second, as a teacher, recognizing that many of my students were not achieving their full potential due to factors that related to neither their mathematical ability nor, in some cases, their effort, I have tried to help students to strengthen their self-confidence and to find an inner calm in which to work.
