Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades 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 success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I’ve 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 attaining your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate successfully and efficiently, but who doesn’t expect to be prosperous, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he thinks but doesn’t 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 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 soul 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 consequence of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t do good things in a excellent way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your abilities. 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 job is completed; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? 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 will be the joy of the outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 individual.” Do not put forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will be able 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 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 will fail; keep on 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 brain which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s not any need to continue 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 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 thought which he receives from his surroundings.” So, if you believe there are no 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 are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
