Successful people eat breakfast.
Even if it is not exactly true, it has always made sense to me that this could be a short list to help others understand success. First, successful people eat breakfast. It means that in the morning when their alarms go off, successful people get up! They don’t hit snooze! They ask themselves, “What do I need to do today?” They get up early enough to have time to eat the most important meal of the day– already achieving their first goal they set. Second, the adversity in their life has changed them and it has made them better. Successful people have persevered and have not used adversity as an excuse to make negative choices in their lives. These two things together are great reminders that can help each of us move towards success.
"The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light."Romans 13:12
First, when your alarm goes off, get up! Take time to eat breakfast and prepare for your day. Second, persevere through adversity in your life and allow it to make you better.
