What do you owe your success to? Mine is books.

We all have our own share of success. I’m not talking Bill Gates wealth success here as most people would want to define success. I’m talking about success in different aspects of your own life. This could be financial success, of course, but also personal self-growth, career success, relationships, health and so on.

Disclaimer: this is not a how-to guide on how to sleep either.
That being said there are those people who just choose to sleep less purposely because they are too “busy”. That’s dangerous. Let’s get to it.
