thought provoking

Recommended Posts

One of my best friends has just sent me this, it is quite deep.


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 think about them.


1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.


2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.


3. Name the last five winners of Miss America.


4. Name ten people who have won the "Ooops, word censored!"el 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 wort hwhile.


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 are the ones that care.


Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.

It's already tomorrow in Australia '(Charles Schultz)
