Unhappy Scored 198/77 on step 1

I am an IMG from Pakistan (US citizen) graduated in 2010 and I scored 198/77 on USMLE step 1.
I don't know what to do. I am just lost.
Please I need serious I stand a chance at residency in USA?
I am just so heart broken. Lost all my confidence.

These are the things that you can do:
  1. Do not lose confidence, keep going
  2. Try to get high scores in Step 2 CK
  3. Pass Step 2 CS from the first attempt
  4. Get good US LoRs
  5. Perform USCE in high profile hospitals
  6. Participate in research and try to be an author in recognized publications
  7. Aim for specialties that do not require high scores such Family Medicine and Psychiatry
