Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. 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 researching the why of people collapse. From the brilliant thoughts 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 talk, 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, particularly when it comes to achieving your goals. 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 believes but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain goal and actions 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’s 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 abilities. Nothing can be farther 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 work is completed; a man’s job is begun then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, 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 execution, then will be the measures, and last but not least are the joy of this outcome.”
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 ordinary person.” Do not set forth your objectives, 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 not 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 inside force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 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 continue 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’t or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limitations 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.” Thus, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches will not 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 charge of your own destiny.
