Napoleon Hill Quotes

Napoleon Hill quotes provide you with the true meaning of success.

This quote by Napoleon Hill is one of my favorites, "Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle."

Many people today are looking to get rich quick. Then, when they fail to get rich they give up on life. They settle for a life of less than they can be. They basically give up trying.

Napoleon Hill said it best; "The majority of people meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail."

In order to succeed at anything, you will face many defeats. You must overcome each one in order to succeed.

When your plans fail, pick yourself up, brush yourself off and start planning again.

Remember that failure is merely an opportunity to more intelligently begin again.
