Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying 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, especially when it comes to achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate successfully and economically, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t 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 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 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 ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not 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 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 isn’t done when his work is completed; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there’s 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 will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this 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 ordinary person.” Do not put forth your goals, 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 isn’t within the scope of your power, 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 peak 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 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 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 idea which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth 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.
