Happy Easter. This week’s belated quote. “Anybody who succeeds is helping people. The secret to success is find a need and fill it; find a hurt and heal it; find a problem and solve it.” Robert H. Schuller
As we celebrate the Resurrection and life of Jesus Christ let us all try to find the meaning of success. To too many, success is material – but how long does anything material fulfill our true needs?
When I read this quote it made me happy to see that we are striving for success in a way that helps others, that helps our community. And our Easter wish will be to continue to strive for success. Whether it is someone who just needs a pick-me-up night out, or help with a vexing tax problem, or just a friend to share a moment with, please know that we are here. And if by chance that leads us to success, then we are blessed.
But in reality, I know that regardless of external circumstances, I am blessed. I am blessed to have a wife and family who think I’m crazy half the time, but still find room in their hearts to love me. To have friends who – in spite of my shortcomings – still consider me a friend. I am blessed to live in a community that time and again has shown love and support for me and my family. And I am blessed to live in a nation were I can profess my faith, share my feelings, voice my opinion and own my business. And that to me is the true meaning of success.
I wish you and yours a Happy Easter and continued success in your lives. May God bless each and every one of us. Have a great week.
