People may not remember what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel.
Sometimes, we unintentionally make others feel bad when we establish ourselves as knowledgable even if we are trying to be 'helpful', because we know stuff.
We may be right, super smart, and talented, but no one wants to be near us or wants our help if we make them feel 'less than'. When we aren't paying attention to how we make others feel, people start to avoid us.
I help people get insight into WHY they do what they do...which is a humbling experience, but I could easily flout how good I am at it...which would ruin it.
I've learned that to be seen as an expert while making others feel good is a learned intentional act. It requires awareness, practice and humility.
At this point in my life, I consciously choose to make others feel good first and have faith that my actions and knowledge will lead others to experience and respect my expertise.
You could try this approach too. It frees you up to be human and allows your gifts and talents to shine.
