A New Year's Resolution

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me,
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed, just be firm with me.
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 and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then...do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?


I am a habit.

-Author Unkonwn

This is my mantra for 2009

"Breaking a habit starts with courage,
ends with discipline,
and is fueled by desire".

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Great New Year's resolution. I've learned not to make resolutions, but I am going to be more religious about going to the gym this year:)

Happy New Year to you and yours.
