27 Success Quotes of Napoleon Hill

thought-catalog-551737.jpg

His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies).

Napoleon Hill was an American author in the area of the new thought movement who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on success.


1.) “The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”
― Napoleon Hill annie-spratt-61561.jpg

2.) “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
― Napoleon Hill

3.) “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.”

6.) “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.”
― Napoleon Hill

7.) “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.”
― Napoleon Hill

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

9.) “When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.”
― Napoleon Hill joshua-earle-109629.jpg

― Napoleon Hill

15.) “The man who does more than he is paid for will soon be paid for more than he does.”
― Napoleon Hill

16.) “Happiness is found in doing, not merely possessing.”
― Napoleon Hill

17.) Action is the real measure of intelligence.”
― Napoleon Hill

18.) “An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.”
― Napoleon Hill andreas-klassen-401337.jpg

― Napoleon Hill

24.) “To win the big stakes in this changed world, you must catch the spirit of the great pioneers of the past, whose dreams have given to civilization all that it has of value, the spirit that serves as the life-blood of our own country – your opportunity and mine, to develop and market our talents.”
― Napoleon Hill

25.) “If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it . . . ”

8 Ways To Prevent An Angry Lifestyle

nathan-dumlao-263787.jpg

Minimizing Problems With Anger Management

There are a number of things you can do in structuring your life to prevent anger from becoming problematic.

1.) Make a personal commitment to calmness.

maximilien-t-scharner-318691.jpgPhoto by Maximilien T’Scharner on Unsplash

Calmness is freedom from agitation in the face of a
provoking situation-and calmness is a choice. It doesn’t
happen by accident, and may start with a statement like
this, “I promise to stay calm at work for one whole day.”
It takes practice, but the payoff is immense-calmness
promotes an internal sense of peace and tranquility-truly
a gift in our hectic lives!

2.) Anticipate and intercept your anger and frustration-and plan accordingly.morgan-basham-364865.jpg

Photo by Morgan Basham on Unsplash

For example, let’s say Mondays are always hectic for you
and there’s nothing to be done to move things around to
change it. Get proactive! You might try beginning a
routine that includes getting to bed a half hour earlier
the night before. Monday morning you may try getting
up earlier to have a good breakfast and
spend some extra time with your family before you
head into the chaos. Remind yourself on the way to
work you can choose to stay calm throughout the day
no matter what. And if the prospect of staying late at
the office or store makes you crazy for fear of missing
your favorite Monday night television program, tape it
for later viewing!

3.) Realize you can say no to your anger.gemma-evans-131781.jpg

Photo by Gemma Evans on Unsplash

We all receive numerous “invitations to anger” every
day-inconveniences, inconsiderate people, equipment
breakdowns, traffic jams-you name it! You don’t have to
get angry just because you could.

4.) Avoid useless or trivial conflictsfrida-bredesen-317281.jpg

Pick your conflicts very carefully!

5.) Accept differences in others.levi-saunders-133027.jpg

Photo by Levi Saunders on Unsplash

So many conflicts arise from the inability to accept and
respect differences in our family members, coworkers,
bosses, etc. It is easy to translate “you do things
differently than I do” to “you’re wrong.” Personal and
business relationships are enhanced with diversity~creativity
is increased, better solutions are arrived at
when problem solving, etc. Learn to view differences
with an appreciative spirit.

6.) Praise instead of punish.xan-griffin-420173.jpg

Photo by Xan Griffin on Unsplash

We live in a society that is starved for praise and
recognition. We are interdependent beings who need
affirmation and positive regard from others to feel
whole. One way to feel less prone to anger and to
decrease the potential for conflict is to keep an eye out
for the positives and continually acknowledge them in
others.

7.) Exercise self-care.ovayo-ntlabati-418459.jpg

Photo by Ovayo Ntlabati on Unsplash

Good care and maintenance of your body is essential
for the prevention of anger. Feeling better physically
typically leads to a better spirit, which in turn serves as
a buffer against the many annoyances in daily life. Think
of the acronym HALT to begin focusing on this all-important
habit:

H – Hunger
A – Anxious
L – Lonely
T – Tired

The idea is that you are more likely to succumb to anger
when confronted with a situation when you are under
the influence of one of these factors, and extremely
likely when operating under more than one.

Hunger: While physical hunger can certainly fray one’s
spirits, this can refer to other types of hunger as well.
For example, you may be hungry for some attention,
affection, or affirmation. Remember to feed your body
physiologically, but also do things, which feed your soul
as well.

Anxiety: Anxiety and anger reinforce one another. Both
are part of the body’s natural “fight or flight” response
to perceived threats. Although anxiety can be low-key,
there can also be a buildup effect of being continually
confronted by situations, which trigger fear and concern.
The key antidote to anxiety is learning the technique of
relaxation. When learned well and practiced daily,
relaxation lowers stress and reduces the tendency to
“fight or flight” responses.

Loneliness: Loneliness may be an issue in the personal
realm or at work. Individuals may be experiencing
relationship difficulties in their families, or feeling estranged from their peers in the workplace. This may
make them more vulnerable to anger evoking
situations. Take steps to ensure you have an adequate
family or social support system-it’s one of the most
positive things you can do for the quality of your life,
and for your physical health!

Tiredness: Getting enough rest at today’s hectic pace is
most assuredly a challenge. But the low-grade fatigue
so characteristic of so many Americans can easily make
one much more susceptible to the many invitations to
anger extended every day. Getting proper rest coupled
with regular exercise is essential.

8.) Maintain proper balance.form-426157.jpg

Photo by Form on Unsplash

Bear in mind that a healthy lifestyle involves a balanced
focus on being, belonging, and doing. Take time for selfdiscovery
(being), social relationships (belonging), and
work you enjoy (doing). Remember that any one arena
typically cannot fulfill all three needs and structure your
life accordingly. Maximum life satisfaction is achieved
when balance is struck among all three aspects. On the
other hand, frustration builds when these needs are not
honored, and the tendency to look for things going
wrong is increased, thus making one more susceptible
to anger.

You get and send hundreds of messages a day. From email to your car’s turn signal, are you a good communicator? It can be frustrating when you don’t feel understood. And poor communication can lead to conflict. So, how can you improve your ability to communicate?

Take the time to listen to others. And we mean, really listen. Give the person your full attention, ask questions and restate what you heard. Listen for information and emotion.

  • Don’t let feelings take over. gabriel-matula-300172.jpg

Anger, sadness, excitement – they all make us who we are. But be careful that your feelings don’t control you. You don’t want to say something you later regret.

  • Pay attention to body language. farsai-c-232290.jpg

Body language can say a lot about how a person feels. Make sure your body is sending the same message as your words. And learn how to use emoticons- They can substitute for body language in your written communication.

To All My Readers

I am so excited to share my 100 blog post from my first day here in the blogosphere to this one. I have done my best to be consistent as humanly possible, set several schedule to adhere to my lifestyle, have endured several writer’s blocks, and unsure of what readers would actually be looking for. I stop trying to figure any of this out & just  simply decided to go with the Ms. Flo…LOL!

I started off wanting or just assuming I must post everyday & it would be a great idea but my 40 an hour work week comes along with sleep & many other life duties. I found out real quick that blogging takes time and an everyday schedule is a lot more serious than just picking me three or four days out of the week for consistency. However, I still feel fueled with fire to post daily & when that urge strikes I’m going for the gusto. Whatever the case maybe I am here and still thriving.

5 Simple Tips For Self-Improvement

Are you looking to develop communication skills, maximize your time or simply feel better about yourself?gerome-viavant-217865.jpgPhoto by Gerome Viavant on Unsplash

If you’re like most people, you have goals you want to achieve. Maybe you want to get better at something. Maybe you want to break a bad habit. There’s almost always an area where you can learn, grow and develop.isaiah-mcclean-412247.jpgPhoto by Isaiah McClean on Unsplash

Self-improvement doesn’t have to be complicated. Consider some of these five simple tips:

Books, newspaper articles, blogs – There’s a wealth of information out there. Pick a topic and research it. Start a book club. Reading and discussion keep you sharp and make for good conversation.

  • Learn a new language.

david-200062.jpgPhoto by David on Unsplash

Learning a new language can be frustrating and rewarding at the same time. And by learning a new language, you can also learn about a new culture.

Hobbies are an important part of self-care. It’s good to do something that’s just for you. And it can help you manage the stress of everyday life.

Speaker Jim Rohn, said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  Whether or not you believe this, negative people can bring you down. You’ll always have negative people in your life. But try to avoid them. Instead, surround yourself with positive, supportive people.

Are you carrying around a past hurt? It might be time to let it go. Holding onto these old wounds can keep you from becoming the best version of yourself.

Talking Nonsense on Rant Tuesday

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

6 Basic Quick Tips For Goal Setting

6 Quick Tips For Goal Settingtanja-heffner-300859.jpg

Anyone can set goals. It’s reaching them that’s the hard part. It’s important to set the bar at the right height for success and then follow through. This  article can help you clear a path to success.

Ask Yourself: Is my goal……kelli-stirrett-429672.jpg

Photo by Kelli Stirrett on Unsplash

*Realistic?
*Attainable?
*Concrete?
*Positive?
*Motivating?
*Measurable?

Remember that most goals are good goals, they just need a little work! Start off small…Don’t overwhelm yourself with your goals!! After all, they are supposed to be good for you! If you do not make your set goal, it is not because you are a failure or you are not good enough. Use the opportunity as a learning experience to get up and try again. If something doesn’t work, it is not about trying again and again, but about DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

The Basics of Goal Settingdiao-darius-494045.jpg

“I want to lose 25 pounds.”

“I want to be making a lot more money”

“I want to be a better husband and father.”

“I would like to learn Spanish.”

“I want to exercise at least three times a week.”

estee-janssens-396889.jpgPhoto by Estée Janssens on Unsplash

Do any of these sound familiar? Do these goals remind you of any goals you have set for yourself? Are these good goals to have? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then this article may be able to benefit you greatly.

How many times do you wake up, take a look in the mirror, and think “I hate being overweight!! I’m going to lose 50 pounds!!” Maybe you even say it out loud, or jot it down on a scrap of paper. But somehow, it just doesn’t happen. Why is setting goals and achieving them seem to be so challenging for so many of us? One very common reason is not having well-set goals.

Now, each of the goals above is laudable. But to have the highest chance of being accomplished, they could use a bit of work. Following is a set of qualifications for goals, a set of criteria to determine if what you’ve come up with are truly well-set goals.

Is your goal…?jess-watters-496642.jpg

Photo by Jess Watters on Unsplash

*Realistic?
— Can this goal be realistically met?

*Attainable?
— Could this goal truly be achieved?

*Concrete?
— Is this goal specific and set forth in sufficient detail?

*Positive?
— Is this goal stated in a positive form?

*Motivating?
— Does this goal motivate you to accomplish it, or does it discourage you?

*Measurable?
— Is this goal time-limited?

gmb-monkey-518199.jpgPhoto by GMB Monkey on Unsplash

Following these simple criteria will help you set goals that are more manageable and will give them a higher likelihood of being achieved.

For example, say you want to lose some weight. Let’s look at this goal compared to some sound criteria for good goal setting:

*Realistic?
— Losing some weight can definitely be realistically met.

*Attainable?
— Losing some weight is usually pretty easily attainable as well.

*Concrete?
RED FLAG!! This goal is not specific, or outlined with any detail. How much is “some” weight?
Ten pounds? Twenty? And lost within two weeks? Six months?
—Suggestion: I want to lose 20 lbs. in six months. = GREEN FLAG!

*Positive?
— This goal is stated in a positive form, as opposed to stating that you do not want to gain anymore weight.

*Motivating?
— This one is up to you. All too often, we set goals that are so high they actually hinder us from meeting them. Take for instance, setting a goal of working out every day of the week may wind up being intimidating. Instead, making a goal to work out three days a week is much more manageable and much less overwhelming.

*Measurable?
RED FLAG!! This goal is not time-limited or measurable.
—Suggestion: I want to lose 10 lbs in three months and take two inches off my waist = GREEN FLAG!

brannon-naito-518158.jpgPhoto by Brannon Naito on Unsplash

Let this example guide you as you set your goals by making sure that, at a minimum, your goal meets the above criteria. Spend some time thinking about why a particular goal is desired and what it will mean to you. Losing weight, for example, will improve your appearance, give you more energy, raise your level of self-esteem and self confidence, lower your blood pressure, etc. Now that’s motivating!!!

Another important key is to write your goals down. Then break them down into manageable steps. Take time to review your goals frequently–some experts suggest reviewing them on a daily basis! This keeps you focused on achieving them, and helps you make better decisions about how to manage your time and priorities. Taking the time to set well-thought out goals can truly make a difference and set you well on your
way to achieving them and becoming more successful–at whatever you choose to do.
