Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped countless people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades 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, particularly when it comes to attaining your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a definite goal and actions can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You must be certain 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 efforts.”
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 targets but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job is completed; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there’s an implementation, then there is 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 are the joy of the outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, although the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the average individual.” 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’t 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 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; continue 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 is 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 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 is why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by changing the idea which he receives from his surroundings.” Thus, if you believe that there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth won’t stop flowing, then you are either not aware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take control of your own destiny.
