What do you want to do with this mathematical knowledge you want to acquire? Learning for the sake of learning is fine, but, like programming and many other big topics, it can be much easier if you have specific goals and motivations.

Personally, I only started to enjoy math when I started hanging out with PhD students (in engineering as I was an engineer). They showed me what you can do with upper level math and that motivated me to learn it. I discovered that most math isn't like high school at all and is way cooler than I imagined.
