There’s hardly anyone who doesn’t want to achieve success in life. Sadly, oftentimes, to many, the end result proves elusive. The reality is that we’d always have the poor amongst us.

There are far more people who have failed in life than those who have succeeded. A fact represented in the world around us. Success continues to elude many earthlings. Admittedly, many who have succeeded in life failed at one time or another and some like America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln failed multiple times before they found success.
In the journey of life, our paths would cross with lots and lots of people; but not everyone we come across is an essential element to the fulfillment of our dreams. Some ought to remain acquaintances and contacts rather than become friends, and some ought to be eschewed all together.
The general consensus seems to hint that in his lifetime, the average person spends eight hours a day sleeping which translates to one-third of his life.
