Buzz the high C everytime before playing. whenever playing a score, try practicing (if possible) an octive higher.

play down low, lots of pedal tones, lots of these creates a good embouchure for higher register playing, also jst pratice loads but dont wear urself out.

since most people that reply on here are just amature players, I suggest you check out some recordings of professional players with great chops such as Wayne Bergeron, Maynard Ferguson, or Pat Hession (Pat also has a method book for developing "invincible" chops at www.hessionssessions.com )... they are all on youtube

your lip muscles arent strong enough. Embrouchurere isnt built by playing a few high notes (i. e. going to a high C once). It is by playing high (not extremely high) for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, embrechoure isnt built overnight.. it takes a while. but once you build your emrechoure the ability to hold high notes comes with it. (for example i havent played regularly on a trumpet, but i know how to... I can get to a high C but I cant stay there because I dont play trumpet regularly)

Remember that only playing high can damage your chops and lead to a poor lower and middle register... Most people recommend only 15 minutes of focused upper register practice a day with the rest of your studies focused on lower register, soft, and melodic playing. Remember that to have a strong upper register you need have a fat lower register.

P.S. buy Pat's book...it'll do you wonders

I imagine thats how curtis1234 feels right now

You could try warming up with scales going up to the high range. The notes will seem more secure and easy.
