The text after midnight from a friend simply said, “You know you’ve made it when your book is on Jimmy Kimmel’s Unnecessary Censorship segment. Congrats!”

Take a look:

Some days I feel like I’ve made it when I close a big sale or when I make it through a really tough workout. I feel like I’ve made it when my kids tell me how much they love me.

So many different moments and milestone deliver that feeling.


What’s YOUR barometer for feeling like you’ve made it?
