Do not fear Failure. Have a Stress-less Examination: Update #1

It is the time for midterms and other examinations. Even though you study efficiently, you still feel overwhelmed. What can you do?

Don’t be stressed. The midterms are a celebration of learning. Once you are able to let go of the fear of failure and the pressure from a numerical score of your performance, then you can truly excel in learning the material and taking in the beauty of knowledge.

You only live once. Will you be proud that you got 10 more points on a midterm when you are 60 years old? Or will you be more proud of enjoying the material and being rewarded by the struggle you faced as a young academic?
“Train yourself to let go, of everything you fear to lose.” -Yoda
Confidence comes through achievement. Never let the fear of failure stop you from what you truly wish to accomplish.
Bend your stress everyone.
