Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped countless people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life researching the why of individuals collapse. From the brilliant thoughts and research of one of America’s greatest self-help authors, 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’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 ability to work 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 thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain goal and actions can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You have to 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 thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can not 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 farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his work is finished; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? 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 execution, then are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of the outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, although the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the average person.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will be able 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 goal.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”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 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 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 changing the idea which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe that there aren’t any 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.
