The people who count most don’t receive awards

When you get to thinking about what and who really matters in this world, ask yourself these questions: who were the last five Academy Award winners for best actor? Who were the last five winners of the Miss Universe contest? Who were the top five goal scorers in international football last year?
Most of us probably couldn’t remember one. But then ask yourself: Who were the teachers that really helped you prepare for life? Who were the friends who helped get you through the bad times? Who are the people who helped you believe in yourself when your self confidence was shot?
It’s when you do this that your perspective begins to change and you start to realise that the things and people who count most are not necessarily those who receive awards, but rather those who get involved in our lives.
