Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of people collapse. From the brilliant thoughts 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 success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I’ve 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 attaining your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate 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 doesn’t 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 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 soul, your soul 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 consequence of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”

If you can’t do good things in a great 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 ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of the result.”

Napoleon Hill also said,”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 person.” Do not set forth your objectives, 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 isn’t within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its objective.

Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the peak 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 at your back.” Both poverty and riches are the offspring of the same mind, the brain which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there is not any need to keep on working to achieve 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 construct. 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.” So, if you believe that there are no reasons why you can’t 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.
