When Macbeth is doing something that is honorable and for which he has been trained, he is very good at what he does. However, the idea of killing his king in his own home makes him more than a little "rattled." The pressure is self-imposed and it is imposed by his wife; normally he is fighting for king and country which is part of his manly makeup that he has lived with throughout his entire life.
