We came across this riddle today and wanted to share it with our readers.
I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you on to success or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things I do you might just as well turn 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 all 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 all 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 placed the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I? Let us know what you think and stay tuned for the answer in a couple of days!
