Default How to stay focused!

So after I failed at step 2CK I started step 1 immediately and I'm planning to take it 5 weeks from now. But the idea of me failing at step 2 keep haunting me. There's a big confidence problem inside me. It's daunting and once I start the day with it, it is really hard to shake myself out of it.
But considering there's no option but move forward , all I need to do is shut my all senses and just think about learning what I'm studying.
It was really hard for me, I didn't realize how much of medicine I forgot after surgery residency and 2 years of research. But after a long study period almost everything came back, now I'm filling the gaps, I feel it.
This is my first pass and I'm doing around 65-70 percent in UW. I believe this time it will be different.
Keep focused! Rest of the world is the "rest" of the world. I don't have to deal with anything when I'm sitting on this table.
Go go go...
