The Truly Important People

Take this quiz:

How did you do?

The point is, we do not easily 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. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Now try a different quiz:

Was that easier?

The lesson is that the 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 ones that care about you. Do something today for someone else that will put you on that someone's list of the truly important people in their life. You have every credential needed for that accolade.
