    The Charles Schultz Philosophy of Life

    Not to sound mushy but sort of reminds me of GTT, Just Sayin!
    I've only met a very few members but feel I know most. Go Figure!



    The Charles Schultz Philosophy of Life


    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 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 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 .

    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.

    I bring us all together. It's really nice to know at least the state everyone is from. Unless it's Texas, then who cares.

    Want me to remove my State from my profile? I think most could figure out where I am anyway, because of how special I am!
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.
