Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private improvement. 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 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 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, especially when it comes to achieving your goals. 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 thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your mind on a certain goal and actions can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You have to be certain that the power of thought and of action are combined, and that these two are inseparable.” The brain 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 attempts.”
If you can’t do great things in a excellent way, do small things in a terrific way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, do not go beyond your skills. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your goals but don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is finished; a man’s work is begun then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes believed, then there’s 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 are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 individual.” 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 is not 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 stated,”If you expect to climb to the peak 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 in 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’s no need to keep on working to attain it. A positive mind sees a way it can become a success, and a negative mind looks for all the reasons why it can not 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 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 environment.” So, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth 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 charge of your own destiny.
