Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life researching the why of people 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 speak, because only 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 man 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 believes 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 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 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 efforts.”
If you can not do good things in a great way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your abilities. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your goals but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his work is completed; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes believed, then there is an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the thoughts, then come the execution, then will be the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of the result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”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 average individual.” Do not set forth your objectives, 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 reach of your power, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its goal.
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 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 goal is achieved there is no 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 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 idea which he receives from his surroundings.” So, if you believe that there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth will not stop flowing, then you are either not aware of them, or you are creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
