$\lim s_n=s$ means that :
$\forall \epsilon>0, \exists N \in \mathbb{N}, \forall n\geq N, |s_n-s|< \epsilon$

Now take $\epsilon$ such that $s-\epsilon$ is positive. You can always find one, such as $\epsilon=\frac s2$

From the inequality $|s_n-s|<\epsilon$, we can say that $s-\epsilon
Since we defined $\epsilon$ such that $s-\epsilon>0$, it's easy to conclude.
