Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of individuals to attain 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-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 have 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 operate successfully and efficiently, 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 thinks 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 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 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 thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your abilities. Nothing can be further from the truth. You may reach your targets but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his job is completed; a man’s job is begun then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s 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 hidden, even though the soul may escape for some 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 be able to see and know 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 power, 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; 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 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 keep on 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 construct. That is why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by changing the thought which he receives from his surroundings.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth will not stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
