Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. His influential books and ideas have helped countless individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of individuals collapse. From the brilliant ideas and research of one of America’s greatest self-evident writers, 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, particularly when it comes to attaining 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 certain goal and actions can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You have to be assured that the power of thought and of action are joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind controls your body and spirit, 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 efforts.”
If you can not do good 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 abilities. 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 is not done when his job is finished; a man’s work is begun then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and goals to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there is an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there is 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 stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be hidden, although the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not put 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 isn’t within the scope of your power, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its goal.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”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 mind which believe a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s no need to keep on working to achieve 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 not 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 altering the thought which he receives from his environment.” So, if you believe that there aren’t any reasons why you cannot become a success and poverty and wealth won’t 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.
