Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life researching the why of individuals collapse. 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 either 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, particularly when it comes to attaining your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, 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 thoughts on a definite 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 brain 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 result of his thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t 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 job is finished; a man’s job is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the execution, then will be 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 unseen, even though the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the average individual.” Do not put forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will have the ability to see and understand 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 energy, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you’ll fail; keep on 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 brain which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there’s no need to continue 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’t or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about several 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 environment.” So, if you believe that there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches 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.
