Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of personal development. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to reach their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five years of his life researching the why of people failure. 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 talk, 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 ability to operate successfully and efficiently, but who does not expect to be prosperous, is like a man with a wheel who doesn’t know how to use his tool; he thinks but doesn’t 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 joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The mind 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 efforts.”
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 skills. 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 isn’t done when his work is finished; a man’s job is started then and continued ” Do you want your dreams, desires, and aims to be realized? Then first comes thought, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s 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 the outcome.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, although the soul may escape for a time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not set forth your goals, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will be able to see and understand their greatness. If you can not accomplish anything in your life by the power of your will alone, then it isn’t within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the inside force that moves outwards toward its objective.
Napoleon Hill also said,”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 mind which think 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’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 limits to the mind except those we assemble. That is 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 cannot become a success and poverty and riches 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.
