Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life researching the why of people 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 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, particularly when it comes to achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to work successfully and economically, but who does not 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 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 combined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind 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 result of his thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t 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 completed; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there’s an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the implementation, then will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, although 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 be able 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 top 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 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 goal is achieved there’s not any need to keep on working to achieve it. A positive mind sees a way it can turn into 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’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 environment.” Thus, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches 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 control of your own destiny.
