As a young future mathematician (senior in high school) I'm having trouble coming to terms with the fact that I'm not going to be the smartest kid even though I pursue math outside of class from pure interest and nothing better to do. I know its only going to get worse when I move to a university. I know I'm not the only one that feels this way or has in the past. Any advice? I really like this quote, "success is not how far you get, but the distance you've traveled from where you started".
