Proving a point is pointless change the way you approach
Take a look at this example, which I am sure you have all seen, and if you are anything like me, you’ve had enough of the hatred on social media over the Pandemic and Brexit to warrant more discussion. One of the things that has surprised me is how many individuals would rather be correct than see their nation or other people in a better position.
Here is an old fable that you may of heard before…
Individuals may expend a significant amount of time and effort to prove a point about something. You will never be able to convince someone else that you are correct. More often than not, the more you attempt to prove your point to them, the more obstinate you and they get, frequently to the point that whomever is wrong, even if it is you, will never confess their mistake. The only person who matters in determining whether or not you’re correct is you alone. What you think about a situation is entirely up to you.
When it comes to a circumstance, what matters is what you think about it in regard to yourself.
- Everyone has the freedom to express their thoughts and ideas.
- Inaccurate and wrong actions and beliefs are frequently expressed by individuals.
- The right and obligation to point out mistakes of truth to others rest with those in close connections, such as parents, spouses, and supervisors.
- It can help you avoid slipping into the trap of feeling like you have to prove yourself to someone else.
- That is something that the facts do on their own.
- If the individual comes at 8:10 a.m., the bus will have already left!
- This is a technique that extended families frequently use, particularly on newcomers such as son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws.
There is no way you can make a point to someone who possesses an opinion or values that are diametrically opposed to your own.
YOU KNOW whether your beliefs, points of view, ideas, and values are appropriate for you.
Don’t become locked in a never-ending circle of attempting to prove your thoughts or viewpoints are correct to others who disagree with you.
Don’t feel as though you have to show that you are correct and they are incorrect.
“The proof of the pudding is in the eating,” as the saying goes.
This cannot be pushed on others, no matter how compelling you believe your evidence to be. So demonstrating a point is a waste of time! See what people are saying about myMillionaire Mind-Set course on the next page:

Proving a point vs making a point
The protagonist of Shakespeare’s play Macbeth was played by a veteran actor, while a young actor was enlisted to play his henchman in a recent staging of the play in the United Kingdom. Throughout the practice process, the senior actor kept insulting the younger, junior artist, tormenting him and making him feel tiny and inadequate in comparison to the senior actor. This caused concern for the junior artist, who was looking forward to a chance to avenge his father’s treatment of him. When the chance presented itself during a commercial performance of the play, I took advantage of it.
The junior artist recognized an opportunity to make a message in the fact that he was forced to say these things.
This really knocked the actor off his game, and he was left flailing.
