Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private 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 researching 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 talk, because your words can plant the seed of success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I have 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 achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and economically, but who doesn’t 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 certain goal and actions 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 combined, and that these two are inseparable.” The brain controls your body and soul, 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 attempts.”
If you can’t do good things in a excellent way, do small things in a great 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 targets but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job 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’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 the outcome.”
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 average person.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will have the ability 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 reach of your energy, 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 peak 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 mind which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there is not any need to keep on 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’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 limits 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 altering the idea which he receives from his surroundings.” 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 unaware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
