Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years 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 your words can plant the seed of either 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, particularly when it comes to attaining your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and economically, but who doesn’t expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not 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 must 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 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 thoughts, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t 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 further from the truth. You may reach your targets but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is completed; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? 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 implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of the result.”
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 set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will have the ability to see and know their greatness. If you can’t accomplish anything in your life by the power of your will alone, then it isn’t 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 stated,”If you expect to climb to the top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you will 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 believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there is no need to continue 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’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 assemble. 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 surroundings.” So, if you believe that there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches won’t stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
