45 Quotes by Napoleon Hill to inspire you to personal success

Quotes-by-Napoleon-HillAlthough in modern times he’s become a more controversial figure, today I want to explore some quotes by Napoleon Hill. Regardless of any controversy, he’s a man whose written work I admire.

Oliver Napoleon Hill, to give him his full name, was an American self-help author. He is probably best known for his book Think and Grow Rich, which is among the 10 best-selling self-help books of all time and remains essential reading to this day, in my opinion.

Essentially, Napoleon Hill’s written work insists that impassioned expectations are essential to improving one’s life. That is, they suggest the need for a burning desire to improve one’s lot in life. Most of his books expound on these underlying principles for achieving success.

So let’s take a look at some of his many quotes. I found them inspiring, so I hope you will too.

Enjoy them all, and feel free to share them with your friends.
