Who Am I?

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. 
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well turnover 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 a 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?
