“Our attitudes propel us forward toward our victories or bog us down in defeat. They are the foothold beneath us in every step we take. They are what others see most about the personality within us; they describe us and define us, projecting the image we present to the world around us. Our attitudes make us rich or poor, happy or unhappy, fulfilled or incomplete. They are the single most determining factor in every action we will ever make. We and our attitudes are inextricably combined; we are our attitudes our attitudes are us.” – Shad Helmstetter
I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or I am your heaviest burden. I will push you onward or I will drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half the things you do you may as well turn over to me. 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 all great men and alas of all failures as well. Those who are failures I have made them failures. I am not a machine though I work with all the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a man. 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 word at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you. Who am I? I am a habit.
