Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying 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 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 attaining your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts on a definite goal and actions 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 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 thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
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, do not go beyond your abilities. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his work is completed; a man’s work is started then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, 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 execution, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of this outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, even though the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not set forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained 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 reach of your power, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its goal.
Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the peak 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 at 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 keep on 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 several 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 that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches 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 control of your own destiny.
