Two Quizzes--One Lesson
How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers. They were the best in their fields.
But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades
are buried with their owners.
Name the five 2 wealthiest people in the world.
Name the last five Heisman Trophy winners.
Name the five Miss Americas.
Name 10 Nobel and/or Pulitzer Prize winners.
Name the six Academy Award winners for best actor and actresses.
Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
Was this quiz easier?
List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
Name five people who have taught you something worth while.
Name some people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Name six heroes whose stories have inspired you.
What is the lesson?
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with
the most credentials, the most money, the most fame, or even the most success.
The people who really make a difference are those who care.
What about you and me? What kind of people are we striving to be? Are
we striving to be famous? Successful? Wealthy? Or, are we striving to be
people who care? Are we making a difference in the lives of those with
whom we come in contact?
