Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of people failure. 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 talk, because only 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 man can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, particularly when it comes to attaining your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill 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 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 soul, your spirit 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 efforts.”
If you can’t do good things in a great 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 do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job is finished; a man’s work is started then and continued ” 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 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 a time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 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 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 is not any 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.” Thus, if you believe that there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth will not 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 charge of your own destiny.
