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

I am not a machine though
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.
