I Can Make You Great or I Can Make You a Failure – What Am I?

Okay, so WHO am I?

Let me give you some clues.

Exactly WHO AM I? I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half of the things you do you might as well turn over  to me and I will do them – quickly and correctly. I am easily managed – you must be firm with me.                                                                

Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons, I will do it automatically. I am the servant of great people, and alas, of all failures as well. I MAKE GREAT PEOPLE –That is a CLUE. Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not a machine though, however… I work with the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a person. You may run me for profit or run me for ruin –  it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I? I am HABIT. "You can never have, "do" or receive more than your own habits predict".

    Oohhh!  Good one Carol!  And the absolute truth!  If we would just grasp this how our lives would be changed.
