You're probably looking down more than you realize, as much as possible you should practice stick handling with your head up. Also, like others have mentioned, you should be very aware of where your teammates and opponents are before you get the puck, this will help you feel much more confident and much less rushed. Finally, even though you're fast you don't have to skate at top speed all the time, speed changes are great, go fast when necessary but don't be afraid to skate slower, even with the puck.
