Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and thoughts 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 people failure. 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 talk, because only your words can plant the seed of either 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, particularly when it comes to achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to work 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 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 must be certain that the power of thought and of action are joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The brain 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 consequence of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not do good things in a great way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your skills. Nothing can be further 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 work is finished; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? 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 ideas, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of the outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, 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 achieved 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 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 peak 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 believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there is no 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 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 limitations to the mind except those we construct. That is why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by changing the idea which he receives from his surroundings.” Thus, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth 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 control of your own destiny.
