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 studying the why of individuals failure. From the brilliant ideas 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 speak, 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 achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be prosperous, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a definite 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 joined, 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 attempts.”
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 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 isn’t done when his job is finished; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of the result.”
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 average person.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will be able to see and know 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; 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 is not any need to continue working to attain 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 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 changing the idea which he receives from his surroundings.” 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.
