The Charlie Schultz Philosophy, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to answer the ?s. Just ponder on them.Just read through, and u'll get the point.

1. Name 5 wealthiest people in the world.
- - Bill Gates, Oprah
2. Name 5 Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last 5 winners of the Ms America pageant.
4 Name 10 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.

Here's another quiz.. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
- - Gng. Gregorio, Miss Victoria, Gng Hernandez, Miss Layug, and my teacher in debate
2. Name 3 friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
- - Vida, Jacq, Jeff
3. Name 5 people who have taught you something worthwhile.
- - Arnie, Jojo, Vida, Ronald, Allan
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!
- - Vida, Jojo, Ronald, Arnold, Flare
5. Think of 5 people you enjoy spending time with.
- - Vida, Jojo, Ronald, Arnold, Jacq, Flare .... a lot!

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...
