Suc­cess in life comes to those who per­se­vere

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Chris Baird

This has been a long and ar­du­ous road less trav­eled by. Yet it is still trav­eled by a hand­ful: the road of cre­at­ing a small com­mu­nity news­pa­per with a mission to help peo­ple see the op­por­tu­ni­ties to serve and do ran­dom acts of kind­ness.

I am ever grate­ful to the com­pa­nies that have been ad­ver­tis­ing with me since mid-2012 and all that have ad­ver­tised with me at any time. This is a work of love. This is my mission in life. This I know with all my heart.

For any­one out there that is strug­gling, I feel like I can com­fort­ably say I have been in your shoes. I have been down a path that hasn’t been easy, full of sac­ri­fice, full of pain, and full of tears. How­ever, it has also been a path full of faith, and I took that huge leap of FAITH to do what I know I am sup­posed to do.

I leaped away from a well-pay­ing job at the post of­fice, with great benefits, paid time off, a con­stant sched­ule of hours, paid hol­i­days and more. At the time I leaped, the news­pa­per was in its in­fancy; I was only at eight is­sues in and still learn­ing what I was do­ing. Now I am still learn­ing as I am on a path to im­prove my­self. I don’t worry about com­pet­ing with oth­ers, I fo­cus on im­prov­ing my ser­vices to the com­mu­nity and work­ing with oth­ers build­ing re­la­tion­ships. Af­ter all, the three main goals of the pa­per are to Em­power Lib­erty, Build Com­mu­nity and Foster Growth.

The three-year mark of Serve Daily is com­ing in June and we are very ex­cited. Cur­rently we pro­vide a free cal­en­dar for post­ing events and find­ing events to at­tend at Keep vis­it­ing the web­site of­ten as soon you will see dras­tic changes along with more FREE com­mu­nity ser­vices.

Re­mem­ber, per­se­vere. Keep at it. Be­lieve in your higher power, or be­lieve in your­self. Re­mem­ber, with con­tin­ual ef­fort and plac­ing one foot in front of the other, just about any­thing is pos­si­ble. Un­til next time, go Serve “Some­one” Daily.
