YOUR HABITS IN THE NEW YEAR
Show them who’s in charge.
Each of us has our habits. We talk about them, good or bad, and how they influence us. How will yours affect you in the new year? The following excerpt from Habits Die Hard by Mac Anderson and John J. Murphy reminds us that it is up to us to take charge.
An excerpt from Habits Die Hard by Mac Anderson & John J. Murphy
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.
