Financial Advisors

I remember when I was younger, the idea of making a six figure salary sounded so out of reach. Now that I have it, why do I feel like I haven't "made it" yet?

Because human adaptivity is also a curse. You'll always get used to something once you've attained it.

I remember making $40k in my early 20s and thinking wow this is good money. Now making close to 200k and in my early 30s. Life is good though. Be grateful for what you have and aim to be a better person. I bet you won’t feel that way after.

Everything is relative, 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k. The more you make the higher your level of poverty feels. Finding things outside money that motivates has helped me. Regardless of how much I make, I will never feel like I have made it financially.

It really is funny... I remember some of our best years when we didn't have a dime and now when we get a quarterly payment as large as a whole years income used to be its one celebratory dinner and back to work.

I think it’s innate in a successful financial advisor... setting goals, wanting to be/do/have better, and wanting that for our clients. It never goes away, but I have settled in to the “discomfort” with more ease than the first years.

It’s all about who, what, when and where you surround yourself with... Ameriprise is truly not a good place for any of those. Get out there and build it on your own independently and you will feel you made it!

It's all relative. You work with clients who have millions of dollars compared to them have you made it?
