What was the moment you felt like you had "made it"?

KF: The moment I felt I made it was when I bought my mom a car after seeing her use the same old red van that used to break down and overheat. She used to have to pull over on the freeway and was never able to use the air conditioner. So when I turned pro and was able to take care of her the way she has always taken care of me and my brother is when I felt I made it.
