    The Charlie Schulz Philosophy – Little Secrets Of Life

    by FinerMinds Team
    July 4, 2011

    *Note* I got this in an email yesterday – loved it – so wanted to share it with you. The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.
    Here’s A Little Quiz

    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.​
    Did you find that 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 simply are the ones who care the most.
    ‘Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia !’​
    snoopy1. ”Be Yourself. Everyone Else Is Taken!”​
