Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of people failure. From the brilliant ideas 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 speak, because only your words can plant the seed of success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I’ve 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 goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate successfully and economically, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts 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 brain controls your body and soul, your soul 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 result of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t do good things in a great way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your skills. Nothing can be further from the truth. You may reach your goals but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job is completed; a man’s job is begun then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the execution, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of the result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, although the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not put forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will be able to see and know 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 power, 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 top 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 in 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 objective is achieved there’s not any need to continue working to achieve it. A positive mind sees a way it can turn into a success, and a negative mind looks for all the reasons why it can not or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limits to the mind except those we assemble. That’s why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by changing the thought which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe that there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches won’t stop flowing, then you are either not aware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
