Napoleon Hill is well known as the originator of private development. His influential books and ideas have helped millions of individuals to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life studying the why of individuals failure. From the brilliant thoughts 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 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, particularly when it comes to attaining your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to operate successfully and economically, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he believes but doesn’t do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts 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 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 consequence of his ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
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 don’t go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his work is completed; a man’s work is started then and continued continually.” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims 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 ideas, then come the execution, then are the measures, and last but not least are 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 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 be able 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 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 top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you’ll fail; keep on 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 objective is achieved there is 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’t or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limitations 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 idea which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth won’t stop flowing, then you are either not aware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take charge of your own destiny.
