    Good! Lean into this triumph and anchor it into your memory with emotion. You will be able to draw on it later whenever you need to tap into some confidence. Come up with a few affirming phrases that will condition your mind to trigger this response on queue.

    Making a big deal of your accomplishments rather than minimizing them is key to building the confidence that overrides anxiety. People mistake minimizing their finest moments as humble, but false humility is a merely failure to capitalize on the strengths that can prevent anxiety from taking hold in the future.

    One mistake people make when they spread that first glimmer of anxiety into a giant abstraction that feels like "this is the way I've ALWAYS been..." is overlooking times like this that demonstrate that old limiting habits are not accurate.

    Head high, and enjOy!
