Thought for the Day

The Charles
Schulz  Philosophy

The
following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz,
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..





How did you
do?




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.

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, like I did.

“Don’t
worry about the world coming to an end today.
It’s already tomorrow in  Australia  !
 
“Be
Yourself, Everyone Else Is
Taken!”

Life may not be the party we expected, but while we’re here, we may as well dance.
