Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of individuals 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 only 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, especially when it comes to attaining your goals. 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 does not 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 assured that the power of thought and of action are joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind controls your body and spirit, your soul 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 consequence of his ideas, 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, do not go beyond your skills. 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 is not done when his work is finished; a man’s job is begun then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the execution, then will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, 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 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 is not within the reach of your power, 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 top 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 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 attain it. A positive mind sees a way it can become 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’s 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 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 not aware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take control of your own destiny.
