Being able to successfully manage your emotions (whether that's anger, anxiety, feeling down) I think is a very important soft skill - in your job and private life. If you realise you struggle with performance anxiety, it's a good idea to look at why that is and where that comes from. It might liberate you in other areas, or make it clearer for you in which environments you thrive or not.
