Great Philosophy

The   following is the philosophy of Charles  Schulz, the  creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic  strip.

First, Take This Quiz..

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 wi nners.

How  did you do?

The  point :

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.

Easier?

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

‘Don’t  worry about the world coming to an end today.  Its already tomorrow in Australia !’

”Be  Yourself. Everyone Else Is  Taken!”
