People Who Matter

Upon reading about the life of Charles Schultz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip, I was enlightened by his philosophy about the people in our lives. You do not have to answer these questions fully to get the point…

1. Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last 5 Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last 5 Miss Americas.
4. Name 10 people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor or actress.
6. Name the last decade of World Series winners.

SO…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, and accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here is another quiz…see how you do on this one:

1. List 3 teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name 3 friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name 5 people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of 5 people with whom you enjoy spending time.

Was that one a bit easier?

Schultz’s lesson is this: 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 that care.

Get clarity…get moving…get happy!
Stay inspired!
