A friend posted this on myspace. I thought it was nice.
What makes a difference?
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip. You don't need actually to answer the questions. Just read this straight through and you'll get the point.
Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.
Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remembers most of 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:
List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Isn't that list easier?
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 are the ones who care about you most.
