The Charlie Schultz (Charlie and Gus Brown)Philosophy

 

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


You  don’t have to actually answer the questions.
 Just
ponder  on  them.

Just  read the e-mail 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.

The  point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.

These are no  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.

Pass  this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

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


”Be  Yourself.   Everyone Else Is Taken!”
