How did you do?
The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday.
These are not 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.

Was that easier?
The lesson: The people who make the biggest difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money or the most awards.
They are simply the ones that care the most.
These are the relationships to be grateful for. Thinking about this helps us to keep our relationship priorities in the right place. Forget about the rich and famous news-makers and concentrate on the people who matter.
