Be Yourself

My friend and boss, Julia Miller sent this email to me this morning and I thought
I would share this with you all.

  The  Charlie Schulz Philosophy (This  is marvelous!! Scroll  thru slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full  effect) 

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  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.

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.

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.

''Be  Yourself. Everyone Else Is Taken!"

 Happy Wednesday!!!
