    Now I see why powerful people often wear sunglasses - the spotlight blinds them to reality.  They suffer from a delusion that power means something (it doesn't).  They suffer from the misconception that titles make a difference (they don't). They are under the impression that earthly authority will make a heavenly difference (it won't).

    Can I prove my point?  Take this quiz.

    Name the ten wealthiest people in the world.
    Name the last ten Heisman trophy winners.
    Name the last ten winners of the Miss America contest.
    Name eight people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.
    How about the last ten Academy Award winners for best picture or the last decade's worth of World Series winners?

    How did you do?  I didn't do well either.  With the exception of you trivia hounds, none of us remember the headline's of yesterday too well.

    Surprising how quickly we forget, isn't it?  And what I've mentioned above are no second-rate achievements.  These 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:

    Think of three people you enjoy spending time with.
    Name ten people who have taught you something worthwhile.
    Name five friends who have helped you in a difficult time.
    List a few teachers who have aided your journey through school.
    Name half-a-dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.

    Easier?  It was for me, too.  

    The lesson? The people who make a difference are not the ones with the credentials, but the ones with the concern.

    That's a good one! But, it doesn't mean that the original post was bad. It is better. Thanks!
