Who Am I ?

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Who Am I? Well let's take a look and find out. There won't be a test at the end but pay attention.

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do might as well be turned
over to me and I will be able to do them quickly
and correctly.

I am easily managed--
you must merely 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 individuals 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 human.
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?

And the answer is

I am your habits.

Now read this riddle with the answer in mind. It's so true, scary, but true.

And now for the bonus round. Enjoy these.

And finally, think about your life and how you have sunny days and days when the rains won't stop. Take a jet trip with me and you will see that no matter what happens down on earth, the sun is always shining.

    Wow, Jessica! A very thought-provoking post today! This is a topic I need to read and re-read, over and over, as I am NOT a disciplined person AT ALL! You must have known somehow that this was a perfect subject and I thank you.

I'm going to print it out, if I may. You are my inspiration!
