Seeing the best in life's challenges

Who Really Matters?

on September 19, 2012

This is just way too good not to share…..comes directly from Scott Sonnon:

You don’t need to answer my questions. Just consider them, and continue to read straight through. You’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five female gold medal winners from the past Olympics.

4. Name five people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name six Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.

6. Name five of the last World Cup winning teams.

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. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List five teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name five friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name six people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a five people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five 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 the most awards. They are the ones that care.

very respectfully,
Scott Sonnon
