Charlie Brown



The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz,

the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip.




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 contest.

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

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner 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 adifficult time.

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

4. Think of a few people who have made you fee appreciated and special.

5. Think of three people with whom you enjoy spendingtime.

6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.



Easier?



The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards.



It's the people who care about you
