Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of individuals failure. 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 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, particularly when it comes to attaining your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and efficiently, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he thinks but doesn’t 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 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 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 result of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your skills. Nothing can be further from the truth. You may reach your goals but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is finished; a man’s work is begun then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims 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 thoughts, then come the implementation, then will be the measures, and last but not least are 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 a time the scrutiny of the average 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 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 top 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 at your back.” Both poverty and riches are the offspring of the same mind, the mind which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there is not any 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 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’s why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by altering the idea which he receives from his surroundings.” So, if you believe that 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.
