The Charles Schulz Philosophy

The Charles Schulz Philosophy
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’
comic strip.  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
Name three friends who havehelped you through a
difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something
 4. Think of a few people who have made you feel
appreciated and special.
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
 They simply are the ones who care the most
 Pass this on to those people whom you keep close in
your heart.
 “Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s
already tomorrow in Australia !”
Hope this brightened up your day/night wherever you may be!

Keep SOARing!

One thought on “The Charles Schulz Philosophy

  1. Eileen, thank you for writing this. It’s a great reminder about what really matters. Especially in the age of the Internet, it’s easy to get caught up in the deadly comparison game. Then, we may find ourselves pining for what someone else has, such as their success. There’s no need. There’s enough success for everyone. Each person just has to go out and get it. Wonderful post, Eileen!
