Take a Quiz

You don't actually have to take the quiz. Just read through and you'll get the point.

Take this quiz:
Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.
Name the last 10 Presidents of South Africa.
Name 10 people who have won the Nobel Prize.
Name the last 10 soccer Premiership winners.

How did you do? The point is, none of us really remember the headliners of yesterday. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Achievements are forgotten.

Here's another quiz:
List a few teachers who aided you in school.
Name 3 friends who helped you in difficult times.
Name 5 people who taught you something worthwhile.
Think of people who made you feel appreciated.
Think of 5 people you enjoy spending time with.

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money or most awards. They are the ones that care.
