A quiz to see what is important.

You may to choose to actually take the quiz or just read straight through. Either way you’ll get the point…..


Take this quiz:
1. Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the 3 Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the 5 winners of the Miss America contest.
4. Name 5 people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last 5 Academy Award winners for best actress.
6. Name the 5 World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are
no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten.

 

 


Here’s another quiz. Let’s see how you do on this one:
1. List a 3 teachers who aided 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 worthwhile.
4. Think of a 5 people who have made you feel, appreciated and special.
5. Think of 5 people you enjoy spending time with.
6. Name 5 people whose stories have inspired you.

Was it easier?

 

 


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

Say thank you, to those who made an impact in your life. Than go out and pay it forward. Take Action! Show someone else that you care and you can make a difference.

Concise and meaningful article. I totally agree that people who made a difference in my life are not the ones with credentials, money, or awards. They are the ones who cared.

Thank you for your article.

This is so true. I love ordinary people doing good things in their own quiet way.

Hi Gio .. it’s actually good to sit for a while and work out the answers to your questions (2nd part) .. as you then remember their talent when they were around you. I’m pleased I’ve spent some time going through the people in my life, as we remember others too ..

Always keep the good in our heart ..

Thanks Gio for reminding us of the things that bring life into us, opening the door for more life -
