Prove or Improve-choose wisely

When you start a new role, position or school, you may feel the need to prove yourself. My advice is ... please don't. They hired you because of your ability and skills and you need to be assured that they believe in you. When you try to prove yourself, you may come across as arrogant or insecure. This may not be a true characterisation of you. Instead of proving yourself, transition to improving yourself. That way you are perceived as confident, yet humble. Insecurity leads to so many issues, not only for you but for your colleagues and inevitably, your students. Improving never stops, until you think you have something to prove. Believe in yourself, because others do.

& the learning continues...
