Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to attain 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-help authors, 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 have learned that what a man can do, that a man can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially when it comes to attaining your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t 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 brain controls your body and soul, 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 result of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can not do great 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 is not done when his work is completed; a man’s job is begun then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there’s an implementation, then there’s 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 are the joy of this 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 ordinary person.” Do not put forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 scope of your power, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its goal.
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 at your back.” Both poverty and riches are the offspring of the same mind, the brain which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that goal is achieved there’s not any need to keep on working to achieve 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 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’s 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 there aren’t any reasons why you cannot 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.
