A Philosophy

Scroll thru  slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full  effect)
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip. (not really, I looked it up… you can’t believe everything you read on the internet, but it’s a good philosophy anyhow)

You don’t have  to actually answer the questions. Just read them straight through,and 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 winners of the Miss  America pageant.

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

5. Name  the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor  and actress.

6. Name the  last decade’s worth of World  Series winners.

How did you do?
The point  is, none of us remember 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.
Here’s  another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List  a few teachers who aided your journey through  school.

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

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

4. Think of  a few 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 simply  are the ones who care the most.
