Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades 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 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 achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and efficiently, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he believes but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts on a definite goal and action 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 brain 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 consequence of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your skills. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your goals but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job is completed; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes believed, then there is 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 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 some time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not set 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’t 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 objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the top 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 mind which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there’s no need to keep on working to attain 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’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 limitations to the mind except those we construct. That’s 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 there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth will not 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 charge of your own destiny.
