Is there a correlation between a healthy lifestyle and success? Sure, Warren Buffet—known for his love of junk food— may be the exception to the rule but sometimes we need not look far to find successful people who jumpstart their day with doing or eating something healthy. Inspiring healthy habits The Obamas, even while in the White House, worked out for 45-minutes to an hour and ate a healthy breakfast before starting their demanding day. Oprah Winfrey has consistently harped on the importance of eating healthy—and she has an entire vegetable garden to prove it. Mark Zuckerberg regularly runs to keep fit wherever he is the world while Amazon big boss Jeff Besos says eight hours of sleep does the trick.

Habits that limit success What is a habit? Apart from being referred to as a piece of garment, I hear people say, “The reason why this person could not achieve success is that he or she has bad habits that debilitate him or her from achieving success.” And before we jump into the picture and contribute our share of opinions as to what the habits are, we first need to know what the word habit means. My reliable friend Google search pulls out the word habit as “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.” We all have normal behaviors, settled practice and tendency to do things even when we are not consciously aware of it.
