Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas 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 individuals failure. 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 speak, because 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 man can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially when it comes to achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not 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 actions 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 result of his thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t do great 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 skills. 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 is not done when his work is finished; a man’s work is started then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there’s an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the execution, 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, 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 attained 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 energy, 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 peak 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 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 objective is achieved there is no need to keep on 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 limits 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 that there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches 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 charge of your own destiny.
