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)


I wasn’t born to follow others.
I wasn’t born to lead others either.
I was born to find my own path, but if others want to come with me I don’t mind.


 

Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.

If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything – Mark Twain

 

Loyalty to country always. Loyalty to government when it deserves it
– Mark Twain

A CHAMPION IS SOMEONE WHO GETS UP, EVEN WHEN HE CAN'T.

 

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you

– Deepak Chopra

DON’T FEAR FAILURE. NOT FAILURE BUT LOW AIM IS THE CRIME. IN GREAT ATTEMPTS IT IS GLORIOUS EVEN TO FAIL – BRUCE LEE

TO SEE ANOTHER FILL THE FOOTSTEPS YOU ONCE CREATED IS A TRUE ACHIEVEMENT.

Sometimes, in order to see things more clearly, you must take a step back.

Go only where you are wanted. Go only when you are needed. Stay only if you are appreciated.

The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.
