Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless individuals to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades 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 only your words can plant the seed of success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I’ve 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 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 doesn’t do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts on a certain goal and action 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 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 ideas, preparations, and attempts.”
If you can’t 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 farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work is not done when his job is completed; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there is an implementation, then there’s 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 will be the joy of the 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 average person.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved 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 reach of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside 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 will 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 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 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 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’s 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 there aren’t any reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and riches will not 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 control of your own destiny.
