Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped countless individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of individuals collapse. From the brilliant ideas 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 either success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I have 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 economically, 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 definite goal and action can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You must 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 attempts.”
If you can’t do great 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 isn’t done when his work is completed; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals 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 ideas, then come the execution, then are 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 unseen, although the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not set forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained 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 is not within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the peak of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you’ll 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 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 several things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limits to the mind except those we construct. That’s 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 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 control of your own destiny.
