What follows are various statements made by Napoleon Hill, on themes of mindset, perseverance, mindfulness, and more.  Enjoy.

“When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”

“Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract us to the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.”

“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.”

“Happiness is found in doing, not merely possessing.”

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

“Just as your eyes need light in order to see, our minds need ideas in order to conceive.”

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

“Do not 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.”

“When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.”

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

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”

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

“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.”

“The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.”

“A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”

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

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

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

“Education comes from within; you get it by struggle and effort and thought.”

“First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality.  The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.”

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”

“Your big opportunity might be right where you are right now.”

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

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

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

“You might well remember that nothing can bring you success but yourself.”

“Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.”

“Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.”

“Action is the real measure of intelligence.”

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.”
