Who Am I?
Believe it or not I saw this for the first time on the back of a cereal packet. It’s a great reminder that what we do on a regular basis really does control our ultimate outcome. This time of the year is a great time to look at your habits.
- What are your eating habits?
- What are your relationship habits?
- Business Habits?
- Spending habits?
- Saving habits?
- Investing habits?
Want a different outcome – change the corresponding habit and get ready for a new destination in that area of your life.
Enjoy and I hope you have a fantastic 2011.
The Habit Poem
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 the regret 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 its precision
Plus the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit or you may 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.
