Napoleon Hill’s 8 Favorite Quotes

Napoleon Hill is considered one of the greatest success writers of all time. His most famous book, “Think and Grow Rich”, is one of the most renowned books on mindset and money known today. In all it’s years on the market, it sold over 20 million copies!


Here are Napoleon Hill’s 8 favorite quotes:

1. Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.

You never know who is listening to your words. Choose words carefully!

2. Action is the real measure of intelligence.

If you are intelligent, but you do nothing, you are worthless. Action shows how intelligent you are. Action is the real measure of intelligence.

3. Edison failed 10,000 times before he made the electric lightbulb. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times.

As Napoleon Hill said, a quitter never wins and a winner never quits! If you want something, go for it. Never give up and sooner or later you will get what you want!

4. If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.

Not always can we do great things, but we can do small things that other people will appreciate. Giving $10 to a homeless person means a lot more than a raised salary of $1,000 to another person.

5. Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.

If you think it is not the right time, you are probably never going to do what you want and you will probably never get what you want. Waiting is never good, if you want something, go for it.

6. You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.

Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. Nobody cares more about yourself than you do. You are the master of your destiny.

7. Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.

Being afraid won’t help you with anything. Fear will not get you what you want. Fear is useless. Get rid of it.

8. Your big opportunity may be right where you are now. 

Sometimes we don’t see the moon between all the stars. The opportunity may be really close, but you might be focused on something else. Look better, search for the opportunity and use it!
