The Secrets of Success in My Own Room

Sunlight through the bedroom window

When I woke up this morning I asked myself:
“What are some of the secrets of success in life?”
I found the answer right there in my very room:
The fan said : Be cool.
The roof said : Aim high.
The window said : See the world.
The clock said : Every minute is precious.
The mirror said : Reflect before you act.
The door said : Push hard for your goals.
And finally, the carpet said : Kneel down and pray.
