Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. 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 researching the why of people 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 speak, 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 skill to operate successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be prosperous, 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 certain 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 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 not do good things in a excellent way, do small things in a terrific 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 goals but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is finished; a man’s work is started then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there is 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 will be the measures, and last but not least will be 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 some time the scrutiny of the ordinary individual.” Do not put forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will be able to see and understand 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 energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside 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; continue 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 objective 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 altering 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 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.
