Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to reach 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 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 person 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 operate 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 believes but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain goal and action 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 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 result of his thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not do good things in a great way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your abilities. 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 realized? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is 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 are the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 put forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will be able to see and understand 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 power, for will is only an outward form of the interior 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’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 believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s no 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’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 limitations 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 altering the thought which he receives from his surroundings.” So, 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 not aware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
