Look, it’s one thing to succeed when you’re flying under the radar, when know one knows you or what you can do, and no one sees you coming.
It’s another to continue to succeed once people are on the lookout for you, once you’re being studied a bit more, once people know your tendencies, know your strengths, know your weaknesses, and will not let themselves be taken by surprise by you again.
So, yes … work until you no longer have to introduce yourself.
But then remember to KEEP working because when you’ve reached that next level, you no longer have anonymity, or the unknown, working for you.
Get ready for that next level shtuff. Don’t say no one ever warned you 😉
