Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of individuals collapse. From the brilliant thoughts and research of one of America’s greatest self-evident writers, here are seventeen Napoleon Hill quotes to inspire you to consider greatness…
I think twice before I talk, because your words can plant the seed of either success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I have learned that what a man can do, that a person can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially when it comes to achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain goal and action can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You have to be certain that the power of thought and of action are joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind controls your body and soul, your spirit controls your mind. Napoleon Hill said,”A man is but the product of his thoughts what he’s done, and the man of actions is but the consequence of his thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not do great things in a great way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your skills. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his work is finished; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, even though the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the average person.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will have the ability to see and understand their greatness. If you can’t accomplish anything in your life by the power of your will alone, then it isn’t within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its goal.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”If you expect to climb to the peak of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you will fail; keep on moving, and before you know it you will be standing at the top with the mountain at your back.” Both poverty and riches are the offspring of the same mind, the brain which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there is no need to keep on working to achieve it. A positive mind sees a way it can become a success, and a negative mind looks for all the reasons why it can not or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about several things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limitations to the mind except those we construct. That’s why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by changing the idea which he receives from his environment.” So, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches won’t stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
