Many successful people have publically confessed that part of their road to success is being sleep deprived. But should that be the case? This is why you need more sleep to be successful
Have you ever been made to feel guilty about your right to a good night’s sleep with the saying, ‘You get as many hours in a day as Beyonce?’ Well, you are not alone. While many successful people, like fashion designer Tom Ford and Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey barely have five hours of sleep per night there are others such as Huffington post founder, Arianna Huffington, singer Jennifer Lopez and talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres who credit their success to staying well rested. Success has always be connotated with sweat, sacrifice and sleepless nights, while this is true to some extent being sleep deprived does take its toll on your health. If, like everyone else, want to be successful one of the key ingredients to getting there is having enough sleep. This is why it’s important to sleep your way to the top.
