Find yourself show casing your talents instead of proving your worth

Have you ever caught yourself trying to prove something to someone else? Trying to prove that you have the skills and knowledge of a certain subject. There is a difference between trying to prove to someone you have the skills and showing someone that you have the skills. You can show someone you have the skills to run some machinery safely. This shows the person that they can trust you to go ahead and do the job they need done.  As soon as you try to prove to someone that you can run that piece of machinery you are working from your ego instead of your truth. Today I caught myself trying to prove that I have the skills. I bought a horse a while ago who is a very nervous boy. It has taken a lot of patience to bring him along and I have learnt a great deal from this horse but I still often ask myself what was I thinking? What really pushed me to buy this horse? I finally realized that the whole reason why I bought this horse was because of that darn ego. I knew that he was a nervous boy and my gut was telling me not to buy him but I remember thinking that I would prove to the skeptics I can train this horse. I will show everyone that it can be done. Now, I am not saying that it can’t be done and the horse has come a long way however, I could have saved myself a lot of money and time if I had just listened to my gut and not let my ego take over. Have you ever been in a situation like this?

If you find yourself needing to prove your skills to someone, I feel as though you are looking at it the wrong way. Just be yourself, trust that you have all the skills to complete the task and always listen to your gut. As soon as you are tying to prove something to someone you are putting way to much stress and pressure on yourself and you are going to end up not preforming to the best of your ability. I guess what I am saying is, just be yourself, and always do something because you want to do it, not because you are trying to prove your worth or your talent. You will be more preoccupied in proving that you can do it instead of just doing it.

Why do we feel we need to prove our abilities to anyone? Usually it is because you don’t feel like you fit in or because you don’t feel good enough in some way. Would you agree with that? There is obviously some reason that you feel the need to prove yourself. If you just do what you know how to do then the person is going to end up seeing that.

The next time you catch yourself trying to prove to someone that you can do something take a step back and think what am I really trying to prove and why? Am I maybe insecure about my abilities? Do I know a lot about this subject and if so why do I feel the need to prove anything? Then just relax and be yourself. When you relax and work from the heart your abilities will shine through. You will probably find yourself show casing your talents instead of proving your worth.
