a little anxiety increases your alertness and can acmally enhance your performance. Anxiety however, can cross the line from being a positive energy to becoming a distressing drain. Often sueh anxiety has a strong worry component. Do any of these thoughts sound familiar? Worry about performance: • I should have studied more. • 1 can*t remember a thing; this always happens to me. • My mind goes Wank;.. I’m not cut out for this. • I have to get an “A”. I’m going to mess up and look stupid. Worry about what others are doing: • Eveiyooe seems to know this stuff but me. • No one else looks like such a wreck—what a loser! • Everyone’s finished but me must be dumb. Worry about negative consequences: • What if I fail; I’ll fall the course, the program . I ’ll nearer make anything of myself! fti
