Napoleon Hill is best known for his best selling book “Think and Grow Rich” which has inspired many over the years. Think and Grow Rich promotes as a personal development and self-improvement.

Hill researched more than forty successful people to discover their formula for success.

Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.

Think and Grow Rich is based on the principle that, “Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it  can achieve.”

Here are some of Napoleon Hill’s best inspirational quotes:

  1. “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”

  2. “Most great people have achieved their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”

  3. “The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”

  4. “Opportunity has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to recognise opportunity.”

  5. “To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.”

  6. “Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and never the result of selfishness.”

  7. “Procrastination is the bad habit of putting of until the day after tomorrow what should have been done yesterday.”

  8. “Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.”

  9. “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”

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

  11. “Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.”

  12. “Everyone faces defeat. It may be a stepping-stone or a stumbling block, depending on the mental attitude with which it is faced.”

  13. “If you do not see great riches in your imagination, you will never see them in your bank balance.”

  14. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

  15. “Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.”

  16. “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”

  17. “Our only limitations are those we set up in our own minds.”

  18. “Deliberately seek the company of people who influence you to think and act on building the life you desire.”

  19. “More gold had been mined from the mind of men than the earth it self.”

  20. “When you are able to maintain your own highest standards of integrity – regardless of what others may do – you are destined for greatness.”
