Let S be a nonempty set that is bbd abv. Let u be the supremum of S. Show that there is a sequence $\displaystyle {x_n}$ in S with $\displaystyle {x_n}$ approaching u.

I have two general ideas on how to solve this problem, but I don't know how to start.

1) I use the epsilon definition of convergence, defining epsilon with relation to u.

or

2) Show that the limit cannot be less than supS (easy to prove, or not? if lim < sup S, lim is in S, choose an increasing sequence and $\displaystyle {x_k}$ > lim), or greater than supS.

If not(greater or less than), must be equal to.

Thanks in advance.
