Who Am I

Who Am I

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.

I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.

I am at your command.

Half of the tasks you do you might just as well turn over to me and I will do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed, you must merely be firm with me.

Show me exactly how you want something done; after a few lessons I will do it automatically.

I am the servant of all great people and, alas, of all failures as well.

Those who are great I have made great, those who are failures I have made failures.

I am not a machine, but I work with all the precision of a machine, plus the intelligence of a person.

Now you may run me for profit or you many run me for ruin.

It makes no difference to me.

Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will lay the world at your feet.

Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who Am I?

I am HABIT
