Want to be more successful in life? These Napoleon Hill quotes for success can help! Read the following Napoleon Hill quotes and instead of just memorizing them or cutting and pasting them somewhere, live them. Take action on them.
1. Turn Your Dreams Into Goals
You can dream about the perfect life all you want, but if you don’t make it into a goal, then you are not going to start taking the action need to make it a reality. When you put a deadline on a dream, you have to map out what needs to be done and how long you have to do it, which forces you to start taking some serious action on your life. Therefore, make all your dreams into goals and you will start working towards the life of your dreams!
2. Always Do Your Best
There are always going to be people who pay you less than you are worth. Even when they know they are being cheap, they will still try to get away with paying as little as possible because they feel it benefits them in some way, especially if they are getting quality work. So, why should you spend hours doing something for someone who doesn’t pay you enough? Because it pays off in more than one way.
First, and most important, you gain experience. Everything is an exchange. You provide a service and someone pays you and benefits from it in some way. When you do something as well as you can do it, you are practicing being your best in that area. The more you do it, the better you get. When you get really good, and become an expert in your field, people will pay you more because they will value the exchange more.
Second, you will demand more of yourself when you get enough experience. The more skilled you get, the more you value yourself and demand more pay for what you do. If you don’t get it from the sources that have not paid you enough, you will take action on finding it from somewhere else because you believe that you deserve it!
Always do your best. If you are not an expert, work towards improving your skills and mastering your work. Don’t get lazy and give less than you can, because you will never be able to master your work by not pushing yourself! When you become a master, you will earn more – guaranteed.
3. Do You Want To Change Your Beliefs?
Most people know that their beliefs are holding them where they are. But if you don’t, understand that it is essential to change your beliefs in order to adopt a new way of living or a new outlook on life. If you are poor now, the only way to become rich is to change your beliefs about yourself, success, and what you are capable of.
Changing your beliefs requires that you open your mind up. You have to be willing to see other perceptions than your own if you want to make a shift. You can’t be narrow-minded and defend one way of doing things or you will never bring in the faith that something else is possible, and the courage to go after it, get it, and change your beliefs for good.
4. The Only Obstacles Are Of Your Own Making
Don’t think you are smart enough or capable enough of going after what you want? You are right! But only because your mind says so. If you were to see no limitations to your success, then you would do what you need to do to achieve it. You wouldn’t worry or procrastinate or give up.
In other words, stop acknowledging that what you tell yourself is true. That imaginary blockade, such as how hard you have it or how other people are holding you back, will stay there until you stop acknowledging that it is true.
5. Get Passionate
If you are tired of the life you are living and want more success, then get passionate about achieving something. When you want to have something, and feel passionate about it, you are going to do what you need to do for success. Anyone who has achieved success had the desire or passion to achieve it first.
You may not find it in yourself. You may need to desire a better life for your family or friends. You may want to develop the desire to help other people and make their lives better. It doesn’t matter where your desire is focused on. Having the desire is the key.
6. Money Is Not Dangerous For Everyone
Money is not dangerous in the right hands. If you are a loving person who wants to do good for yourself and for others in this world, then money is the key to doing some really big things. However, if you are not intelligent enough to think outside of yourself and have compassion and concern for other people, then you could do some really hurtful and bad things with money.
The point is not to worry about becoming bad with money if you are a good person. If you have good judgment, reasoning, and ability to understand other people and where they are coming from, then you are going to do some great things with money. Don’t resist bringing it into your life. Welcome it with open arms!
7. Don’t Quit
Another one of the Napoleon Hill quotes I found implied that we all come across defeat and failure, and many of us quit at that point. For most people, it seems like the rational thing to do. But for the people who want to achieve great things, they have to dust themselves off, get back up, and try again.
If you want something bad enough, don’t quit. It may be the easy route, but you will never get what you desired if you just stop trying.
8. You’re Going To Have To Work Hard
Unless you inherit or win the money, you are going to have to earn your money, and in order to earn money, you can’t expect to sit around all day and do nothing – it just doesn’t work that way. Even if you are the boss, there are some major tasks that you are going to need to perform. And, if you own your own business, where you can create your own salary, you are going to have put in a lot more effort to earn the type of money most business owner’s dream of.
For instance, a lot of people buy into the fact that working online is easy and you can make a ton of money by only working a few hours a day. Then, when they don’t have any success doing that, they quit because they feel like it is all a scam. The truth is that online businesses are businesses! You can make as much money as you want, but you have to work for it or manage other people who are working for you. You have to be accountable for yourself, the time you work, your health, and what you put your energy into. If not, you are not going to pull in the kind of money you want to make.
9. You’re In It Alone
This is one of my favorite Napoleon Hill quotes! It is a simple truth of life, but unfortunately it is often one you have to learn through experience.
Everyone else is making decisions based on their life, and if you depend on others to create the life you want for you, it’s never going to happen. You are the only one who knows what you really want and how to get it, so your life is a do-it-yourself project. When you understand this, you will start taking massive action on what you want and stop waiting around for other people to give you the answers or opportunities you want.
10. Relationships Are Key To Success
Other people are the key to your success. They can help you see things from a perspective you can’t see on your own. They can help you in areas of your life that you are not able to master on your own. They can support you. But, if you do not understand that we all come with different ways of doing things and opinions on life, then you will never be able to form the types of beneficial relationships that you need.
The best thing you can do in life is to accept people as they are. Don’t judge them or try to make them change; instead, accept them and work with them for the benefit of both of you. See everyone as someone who has the potential to benefit your life and even change it, and you will be on your way to more success than you could ever get on your own.
11. The Time Is Now!
Let’s say you are waiting to do something until you get money. There is a simple truth that you need to know. Even if you get all the money in the world, you will still question whether you should do that something. Doing something for your life does not require anything but your desire to do it and a choice to start taking action right now. Those are the two ingredients you need.
Even if you think you need to wait until you have enough money for a trip, you can still start taking small actions now to help you get moving towards your trip. You can study up on where you want to go. You can learn how to swim so you can go snorkeling if you are going somewhere in the tropics. You can learn a new language, find ways to make more money (vacation money), or start talking to people who can help relieve the total cost of the trip. Don’t just sit around, do something that will get your closer to what you want or help you have a successful time when you do get what you want.
12. THIS Might Be The Idea
One of my friends used to say that it only took one ticket to win the lottery, and he was right! It only takes one right move to change your life, and that includes your ideas.
One idea is going to be your ticket to success, so when you feel like you have a good one, go with it. There is no way of telling whether or not things are going to work out, but there is a chance that it will! And, that one idea may end up setting you up on a path of success for the rest of your life.
13. Crave More Knowledge For More Success
Wisdom will help you make choices in life that benefit you. The more you know, the more you can tackle things from a creative point of view. Your awareness opens up, you can see things from many different angles, and you have more of a chance of doing what works. Everyone I know who has achieved success enjoys that success, but they also enjoy growing and becoming even more successful than they are now. That desire to grow is what helped them be successful in the first place.
