Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. His influential books and thoughts have helped millions of individuals to attain 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-help authors, 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 either 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 achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the ability to operate 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 does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain 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 combined, 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 has done, and the man of actions is but the consequence of his thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
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 farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his work is completed; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the implementation, then will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”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 set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have attained them you will have the ability 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 objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”If you expect to climb to the peak of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you will 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 brain which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s not any 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 many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limits to the mind except those we construct. That’s 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 environment.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth 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 control of your own destiny.
