You only prove something because you secretly believe the opposite is true.
For example, are you trying to prove you deserve the amount of money you are making in your job or business by working long hours or over delivering in an area? Or, are you offering free things in your business to prove you are not doing it for the money?
The thing is, when you give up proving you are good, nobody questions it. Whereas, if you are trying to hide something you secretly think you are, people will pick up on something not being quite right here and react accordingly.
Proving comes from either self-judgment or judgment from others. If you are reacting and resisting or aligning and agreeing to judgment, it is controlling you. What if you could instead function from choice?
