Notes from Napolean Hill

I’ve studied Napolean Hill a lot. He’s a great guy from 100 years ago. I’m not sure if a lot of people still know about him, but he’s done many great things and wrote many great books. One of which, Think and Grow Rich, is my favorite.

Now I believe heavily in competition and sharing knowledge. In honor of my belief, I’m going to give you some of my notes from the Hill:

Why some men succeed

  • They succeed because they have the habit of completing everything one begins, first having learned what to begin and what not to begin.
  • Procrastination is the thief of time.
  • Anybody can start something; Not everybody can finish what they’ve started.
  • Most successful people are no more smarter or better than us “average” folk. But they do have the ability to release the action that is stored up in their heads and keep it concentrated on a task, great or small, until completed.

It’s funny. Napoleon Hill is a man of the past, but his knowledge and research is still current in today’s world.
