Winners Make Goal Choices and Form Positive Habits
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!
