Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of people 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-help authors, 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 success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I’ve 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 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 doesn’t know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t 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 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 result 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 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 work is completed; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes believed, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the execution, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, even though the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not set forth your goals, 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 is not within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside 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 in 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 no need to continue 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 assemble. That is why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by altering the thought which he receives from his environment.” So, if you believe 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’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
