NOT THE SITE TO POST THIS ON - BUT THERE IS A POINT

Another reminder from my mom today of some of the more important things - of course POSTING this on a trivia site is an oxymoron in and of itself - so read it all before you jump in with your answers

------------------------------------------------
Charles Schultz 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 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.
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 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 are the ones that care .



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' (Charles Schultz)

To continue your quiz:
1. How may times did you visit your old school and let the teacher see how you turned out?
2. Have you called your three friends and told them how they made your life better?
3. Did you pass on those five lessons to someone else by mentoring a young man or woman?
4. Did you do something special for those folks in return? Take them to lunch for example.
5. Did you ever have a party for you special friends so they could meet each other?
