We humans are always achieving, accomplishing, reaching for the carrot, how do we know when we’ve arrived? Since we all seem to work diligently and constantly to get someplace, wherever that someplace is for you; what follows are twenty ways to know you’ve arrived.

You know you’ve arrived when:

  1. You can sit down and pay all the monthly bills at one sitting, without bouncing a check
  2. You get a promotion or a new piece of business
  3. Your kids get a job or a scholarship

  13. You can NO when you want to and need to
  14. You enjoy your own company
