13 Famous Quotes for Personal Success


Setting a goal is a very good thing, and no doubt many of you are working on a goal for the year ahead. But, for those who need a little encouragement, following are 13 famous quotes by Napoleon Hill, the author of the best selling, personal-success genre book - Think and Grow Rich.

I believe these quotes apply to absolutely anything that you wish to succeed in. It doesn’t necessarily have to be money (business) related.

Do you have a goal for the year ahead?

A goal is a dream with a deadline.

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

How are you going to achieve it?

All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea.

Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. 

Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do.

Cherish your visions and your dreams as if they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.

Man alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.

When are you going to put it into action?

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

Don't wait. The time will never be just right. 

Should I give up if things don’t go to plan?

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

Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do. 

Are you going to help others achieve their goal?

Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness.

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.
