Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal development. His influential books and ideas have helped countless individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life studying the why of people 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 speak, because 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 achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and efficiently, 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 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 must be certain that the power of thought and of action are joined, 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 thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
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 further from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is finished; a man’s job is begun then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? 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 hidden, even though the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the average person.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will have the ability to see and understand their greatness. If you can’t accomplish anything in your life by the power of your will alone, then it isn’t within the reach of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the interior 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’s not any need to continue 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 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 thought which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth will not stop flowing, then you are either not aware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
