Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of personal development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying 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 speak, 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, particularly when it comes to achieving your targets. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work 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 mind on a definite goal and actions 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 brain controls your body and soul, your soul 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 thoughts, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a great 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 goals but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his work is finished; a man’s work is begun 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’s measuring, and then there is seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the execution, then are the measures, and last but not least are the joy of this outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, even though the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the average person.” 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 not 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 interior 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 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 think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s 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 assemble. 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 that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth will not 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.
