The Real Madrid and Portugal star, on Monday, added The Best FIFA Men's Player award for 2016 to the Ballon d'Or that he won last month, capping a stellar 12 months with club and country.
Ronaldo ended the year with UEFA Champions League and Euro 2016 winner's medals, as well as one for the Club World Cup, prompting a string of year-end accolades.
Despite an era-defining row over his or Lionel Messi's dominance of the period that they have shared, Ronaldo's legacy as one of the game's greats has long been secured, a fact not lost on him.
"I have no doubt that I am already a part of football's history," he told FIFA's official website.
"This has always been my major goal, since I started playing: not only to become a player, but to be a star and to constantly strive to be the best.
"And I did it: the trophies speak for themselves – both the titles, the individual awards, and the records.
"It is a source of great pride and it motivates me to keep on working the same way I have been doing so far."
Reflecting on a glittering year with club and country, Ronaldo said: "I have said it a few times: this has probably been the best year of my career.
"Having won the trophy with the national team obviously plays a big part in it as it was a first for Portugal and this makes 2016 a very special year.
"But there is also Real Madrid winning the Champions League and then the Club World Cup to finish the year in the best possible manner.
"It was a spectacular year; a truly special one. I have no doubt that it has been my best since I have started to play football."
