Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of individuals 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 talk, because only your words can plant the seed of either 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 goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and efficiently, 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 actions can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You must be certain 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’s done, and the man of actions is but the result of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can not 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 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 finished; a man’s job is begun then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and goals to be accomplished? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there’s measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, 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 hidden, although the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not set forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 isn’t within the reach 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’ll fail; continue moving, and before you know it you will be standing at the top with the mountain in 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’s not any need to continue 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 limits 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 environment.” So, if you believe there are no reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and riches 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 control of your own destiny.
