Napoleon Hill is famous 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 studying the why of people collapse. 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 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 attaining 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 thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a definite 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 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 thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not 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 farther 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 work is completed; a man’s job is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? 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 ideas, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of the result.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 individual.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will be able to see and understand 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 objective.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”If you expect to climb to the top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you’ll 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 mind which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there’s no 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 assemble. That is 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 surroundings.” So, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches won’t stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take control of your own destiny.
