Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of individuals failure. From the brilliant ideas and research of one of America’s greatest self-help authors, 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 either 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 skill to operate successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he believes 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 combined, 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 attempts.”
If you can not do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your abilities. 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 ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the execution, then will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this outcome.”
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 individual.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will have the ability 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 interior force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”If you expect to climb to the top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you will 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’s not any need to keep on 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’t 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 thought which he receives from his environment.” So, if you believe there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth won’t stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take control of your own destiny.
