Greatest Quotes on Success From Napoleon Hill
Thought leaders are everywhere. But personalities who start a movement of new thought altogether are rare. Napoleon Hill, one such celebrated author of American origin is well known for his fresh renderings into the areas of self-help, motivation and personal success.
Some of the best-selling books by Hill include Think and Grow Rich, The Law of Success and Outwitting The Devil.

" Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. "
" Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure."

“The world has the habit of making room for the man whose actions show that he knows where he is going.”
“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.”
“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”
His most successful book Think and Grow Rich talks about the power one’s personal belief system can have in changing their destiny towards the greater good.
Starting with a modest background, Hill made his fortune into writing all the way up. He went through a great financial crisis while supporting himself to enter the Law School working as a reporter with meagre earnings.
It is said that Hill was heavily inspired with the great industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. While interviewing the latter as part of his reporting job, Hill realised that success is majorly derived from what one thought about oneself en route to achieving it.
To make this happen, Carnegie requested Hill to do a tremendous task of putting together information post interviewing and analysing successful men and women of that period. This very research led Hill to come out with his first best seller, The Law of Success.
Since then, there was no looking back for the eloquent author who recreated the thinking pattern of people with his writings.
