Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals 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 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 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 targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be prosperous, 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 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 result of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can not do good things in a excellent 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 farther from the truth. You may reach your targets 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 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 is measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the implementation, then will be 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 average person.” 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 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 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 top 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 believe 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 become 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 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 idea which he receives from his surroundings.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth will not 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 control of your own destiny.
