Who am I?

Read this riddle and send me a message through Edmodo as a direct message giving the answer. You can include what you think about this riddle. Hope ypu enjoy it!
I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you 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 men. And, alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I made them failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of a machine.
Plus, the intelligence of 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 put the world at your feet.
Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Who am I?

I thiink that is a dog because he has to be train to his is the one who helps you in bad moments , is isily to control and if you take good care of him he would help you if you trit him bad he will destroy you.

But to it could de your brain because is the one that is at your command he is the only thing that the 1/2 of the things that you do you tell the brain to do them

I find it simple at first but then it confuses me as it keeps going so I can not provide an answer but when I read it again the most probable answer presents itself to me, a computer for it helps you and may be your commpanion if you consider, it may be a helper or a burdun, it will help you when you need it or push you down to failechur, it is at your command, it does half the searching quickly and correctly, you have to show it what to doe and it will doe it but be soft meaning if you don't tell it exactly what you want it wont be acurate therfore dragging you to faluture.
