Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of 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 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 speak, 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 man can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially when it comes to achieving your targets. 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 does not know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts 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 joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The brain controls your body and soul, your soul 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 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, do not go beyond your abilities. Nothing can be farther 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 job is completed; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals 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 will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of the result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, even though the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 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 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 think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there is 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’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 assemble. 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.” Thus, if you believe there aren’t any reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth will not stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
