Mensagem:  First off it's good to know what the words mean. Laurels are the honor and glory won for great achievement. So, a person "resting on their laurels" is one who is able to be confident and content with what they have done in the past. What they did brought them honor and glory. Now they don't have to worry about "proving that they have the right stuff" and their reputation is a good one. They no longer have to take chances or do high risk things. They can take it easy and let others worry about proving that they have the strength, intelligence, drive and aptitude to do what it takes to finish the job. The words you are looking for in Portuguese have to depict a mood or person who is in the position of taking it easy in the knowledge that they have been tested and won.
