PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE - Summer 1999
This message is from our Stand Together Seminar booklet (now called the Be An Eleven Guidebook to Success) entitled “The Five Power Axioms for Success.”
By Greg Shepard
Published: Summer 1999
Winners Make Goal Choices and Form Positive Habits _________________ ABOUT HABIT 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 may just as well turn over to me. I will do them quickly and correctly. I am easily managed, but you must 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; of all great failures as well. Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not medicine, but 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 lay the work at your feet. Be easy with me, and I will destroy you! Who am I ? I am called HABIT. HABIT IS MY NAME!
Dr. Greg Shepard
