Learn how to study. We are all different and finding our way of learning, with patience and new methods is a way to achieve success in our studies.
Do not compare yourself with others. A common mistake is to compare yourself with others and their success, remember that each person is unique, learns, and goes at a different pace, be patient and find your moment.
Seek support and advice. Always remember that you have teachers and peers who can support you in your studies, feelings, and other personal and professional matters.
Don't just dedicate yourself to studying. Not everything is studying, one way to cope with the study load and stress is to exercise, practice discipline, and do other activities that distract you.
Don't be afraid to seek psychological help. Pressure and stress sometimes require us to discuss our problems with an expert; balancing life between work, family and friends also require the help of a specialist.
Embrace professionalism. Be kind and humble to yourself and others.
Use supplementary support to learn and study. Read articles, complement what you learn, and get to know other sources, this will contribute to your life and profession.
