You don't have time to learn much new - and our suggestions can really only address your mental state. I suggest you imagine being the fighter you feel you need to be to dominate the fight. Imagine the determination you'd need, feel it, "own it" so to speak. Work out one or two things you think you can use to win - speed, suddenness of movement, power, combinations, footwork, timing - whatever you're good at, or perhaps you'll see the opponent has a related weakness. Go into the fight with the mindset that you're already a blackbelt, you can trust in your techniques - they're just tools you can use as easily as snapping your fingers, and seize the right times to use them. Stay determined but open-minded and analytical so when things don't go your way you work past the problems quickly and find a way to use your strengths. When something works, keep using it or variations on it, or use the threat of it as a set-up for something else completely, to get the most "value" possible out of it and keep the opponent unsettled. If you find yourself in trouble, be quick about working out how to change things up so avoid it - for example, if you're trying to defend but getting hit anyway, forget about it and start attacking. Good luck!
