Here is a quiz which I borrowed from I can't remember who. Just read straight through it and you'll get the point that it is trying to make.

1. Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Olympic gold medalists.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss Universe Contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Oscar Award winners for best actor & best actress.

How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one.

1. List a few teachers who added your journey through school.
2. Name 3 friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name 5 people who have taught you something worhtwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of 5 people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier isn't it? This just shows that the people who make a difference in our life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care. Share this to those people who have made a difference in your life.
