Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of individuals collapse. 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 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 person can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially 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 doesn’t know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t 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 spirit, your spirit 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 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 don’t 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 accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, 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 average individual.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”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 in 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 no need to continue working to attain 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 many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limits 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.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches 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.
