Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades 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 speak, because only your words can plant the seed of success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I have learned that what a man can do, that a man 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 ability to work successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a definite goal and action can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You must be assured that the power of thought and of action are combined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind controls your body and spirit, your spirit controls your mind. Napoleon Hill said,”A man is but the product of his thoughts what he has done, and the man of actions is but the result of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t do good things in a excellent way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t 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 job is completed; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes believed, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least will be 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 a time the scrutiny of the average person.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 is not within the reach of your power, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”If you expect to climb to the peak of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you’ll fail; continue 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 mind which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there is no need to keep on working to attain 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 altering the thought which he receives from his environment.” So, if you believe that there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth 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 control of your own destiny.
