Japanese term or phrase: お主は己が腕で己が値打ちの証を立てた
This phrase comes from a dialogue in a comic. I'm not sure what it means. Can anybody help? Thanks.

English translation:You have proven your own worth.
Explanation:
お主 you
己が腕で by your own merit
己が値打ちの your own worth
証を立てた have proven

I have not included "己が腕で by your own merit" because it is obvious in English.
