Angelica didn’t recognize me.
She is the friendly McDonald’s morning lady and knows if I’m just getting a Diet Coke for Julie or breakfast for the kids.
But when I pulled up 2 days in a row in the convertible she did not know who I was.
It might be because the car is lower than the minivan. I don’t know.
But when you start showing success in life and business, some people you know won’t recognize you.
Or they will do a double-take. Like they have to re-assess who they thought you are in light of new facts.
This is a real phenomenon and it does scare some people.
Success is your right.
It feels comfortable.
And people will get used to the new you, just like Angelica will eventually realize it’s the same guy fetching food for his family.
But you do need to get used to being successful on the inside first.
That’s what our book, The Entrepreneurs Secret Code is all about. Changing what you think you are and how much of life you are going to allow yourself to experience.
