What does it mean to make it to the top, and how do you know if you have made it? These are questions that are common. We have been programmed to think the top is what we see as success, which is associated with all the things money can buy. The truth is, when you have made it to the top, it has nothing to do with all of those things. A person can have it all and still not be at the top.

My mentor, Zig Ziglar, always said there were many things in life you could have, but the most satisfying was the attitude of gratitude. In addition to this, there are many other ways to know you are at the top. Lets take a look at them.

1. You clearly understand failure is only an event, and it has nothing to do with who you are. It does not make you a failure. Each day is a new day to begin again and make the most of the experience you gained from yesterday.

2. Your past is now a strength you use to get the most out of today and plan for the future.

3. Your desires for right now do not control your actions that will change the path that reaches to your destiny.

4. You can live without anger or bitterness and embrace faith, hope and love.

5. You can, from the depths of your heart, forgive all the wrongs you have experienced, whether you did them to yourself or someone else did.

6. You can stand up for yourself and what you know is good, right and just without being vengeful, angry or condemning.

7. When you can truly love everyone regardless of the wrong they have done or perhaps are still doing. Note that this does not mean you have to accept what they do or have done, only that you love the person for who they are and where they are. Love the sinner not the sin.

8. You can accept yourself for who you are and embrace the faults, as well as the attributes, you have. We all have faults and attributes.

9. Find the gift you have been given, and use it to help mankind.

10. Give back what has been given to you, creating a legacy that can be carried through the decades.

As you review the points above, you will notice being at the top has nothing to do with any material thing that may be associated with success. The success you achieve in your life starts with you and who you are. There is no one like you. You are unique, and you have been given a unique gift that is all your own.

It doesnt matter who you are, where you have been, or what you have been through, you can have everything in life you want. See you at the top!
