Angels on Your Shoulder


A friend sent me this e mail. I have always love Charles Schultz, the author of the Peanuts comic strip. I tried to find out where this e mail started and only found lots of places it resides. If someone knows the original author please let me know. For now, with love I share this simple “test.”





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
Name ten people who have won the Nobel or
Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner
for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series




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

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





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 are the ones that care.




“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end
today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia”
(Charles Schultz)




With love and aloha,
