Quiz For the Deeper Freedom

 Inspiration wears many faces. I was taking a train ride back home, the usual crowd in the train began to disperse towards the last few stops. (Mine is the last stop) I was suddenly in conversation with a lady, about her mid 30's who presented me with an unusual but most life-changing Quiz....
Ready to take the Quiz:
1.     Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.
    Name the last 2 winners of the Miss Universe  contest.
3.     Name 3 people who have won the Nobel Prize.
4.     Name the last  5 Oscar Award winners for best actor  or actress.
5.    Name the 5 World Cup winners.
(Were you able to name at least 3/5 of the questions and correctly? Be Truthful)
Lesson learnt:
Although these people are the best in their fields;
   Their applause dies.
   Awards tarnish.
   Achievements are forgotten.
   Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners
By the way I couldn't get past the first Question itself- all I knew was Donald Trump.. then I was blank for the rest of the other Questions.
Now ready for your next Quiz:
1. List 5 Teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name 5 friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3.Name 5 people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4.Think of 5 people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5.Think of 5 people you enjoy spending time with. 
 Lesson learnt: 
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 whom share the deeper meaning with you!
 My biggest lesson on the train was the understanding of the purpose of this deeper meaning. 
2 things that immediately came to thought about the Quiz idea was about being responsive with the Freedom. How amazing was that moment to just feel uplifted, free just to know that you are someone important in his or her life? Here is what the Quiz really did for me. 
 In terms to Freedom what we need to know is that when we start to understand is what we want or what we choose is considered Freedom. However in reality, there is really no Freedom. We want to break rules but we can't, Cossie also discusses; 'The down side of rules.' Also just as we thought we should know about these important celebrities, sports people or the famous, we actually don't.
