5 Telltale Signs You've 'Made It' In Life

  By Christopher Lochhead, host of the "Legends & Losers" podcast

In short:

  • "Making it" isn't about money, but rather constructing your life around your favorite places, people and things.
  • No matter how impressive your professional wins may be, they likely won't compare to the feeling of living according to your values. 
  • We all have the power to start spending time in ways that we're proud of... right NOW.

Many people think "making it" is about money.

Now, money is awesome. And financial freedom is a great goal and a life-changing achievement. But for me, “making it” is not about money.

I knew I had truly “made it” when I realized that the journey is the destination.

That is to say, I “made it” when I realized that life is a thing you can proactively design and then build out your design. And if you're super lucky, you get to co-design and co-build the life of your choosing with people you love.

Life feels very different when you wake up every day:

  1. In the place you want to be
  2. doing things you truly want to do
  3. with people you really love
  4. making the difference you want to make
  5. and having a ton of fun.

And the big “aha!” is that we can all do this.

"Making it" is not about a particular financial outcome. It’s a way of being in life. We all have the power to design our lives, careers and businesses.

When I started co-creating my life with people I love, that’s when I knew I had “made it.”
