How to Achieve Your Goals According to Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was a prolific author and lecturer, who wrote the famous self-help book "Think And Grow Rich." He is best known for his success in motivating individuals to strive to achieve their goals. In this blog post, we will go over Napoleon Hill's six steps to achieving your goal. These are simple, easy-to-follow steps that can be implemented by anyone. Whether you want more money or simply wish to become a better person, these tips are will help you!

First: Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire.

What is your desired lifestyle? Are you looking to have some hours each day for working on side projects, spending time with family members and even taking up hobbies? Do you want the freedom of getting work done from anywhere in the world or do need more than six figures annually just so that you can support all of your needs and wants? What if I told you it would be possible not only to reach but also live a life full of abundance by doing simple things every single day while striving towards achieving what goals are important to you.

So, what do you want?

That's the million dollar question. And I don't mean in life or anything like that, I mean for achieving your goal. What is it about your current situation - whatever it may be -- What makes you feel alive? What are your true passions in life? What do you love to spend time doing when you're not working or focused on other responsibilities? Why do those activities bring meaning and happiness into your life?

Are you looking for a change of pace? It is easy to get caught up in your day-to-day routine and forget about what really matters. After all, many people go their whole lives without ever pursuing their passion or realizing their potential.

It's important that we have a clear image of what it is that we want and desire before we start taking action in order to achieve it.

Second: Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire.

While there are many ways to give back, there is one way in particular that you may be considering. It is imperative for there to be an understanding that as life is a give and take, so too must your success in the world come from giving back.

There is a price to pay asking for the success you want. The price is worth paying, and the rewards are beyond your wildest imagination.

It is imperative for there to be an understanding that as life is a give and take, so too must your success in the world come from giving back. While we can't always see the payoff today or tomorrow; when it comes time for our harvest of success (and it will), we'll understand why this law works so well. The price of success is being willing to give half of your time, energy and life for the pursuit of your dream.

Third: Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

Setting a deadline for your own success is as easy as deciding the date you want to reach it. Once that's done, all that remains is figuring out how and when exactly to get there. This sense of urgency makes reaching any goal much easier than if we didn't have one at all! Without a deadline, we're relying solely on luck to show up and give us the life we want.

The more specific you are, the better! Being vague about what you want and when will only cause frustration because there's no way of knowing if it'll happen or not. Why play this game? Your dreams deserve a date too - so go ahead and set one now!

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

The key to success is the execution of a definite plan. If you have a goal, start by defining it and then create an action plan for carrying out your desire. This will make achieving your goals more likely because I know from personal experience that there are so many ways in which we can bring our dreams into reality when we take time to execute plans with diligence and care!

Although you won't know all the action steps, do what you do know and the rest will come.Work with a confident faith in yourself and your abilities. Start with what you know and make a plan for how to get the rest done! The rest of the steps will become clear as you make progress towards your goal. Start now!

Fifth: Write out a clear, concise statement on the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

writing goals

"Do you want to be a millionaire by the time you're ___ years old?" "How much money do you need? That's an important question for every entrepreneur. Success is not as straightforward a goal as it would seem. Achieving this feeling of accomplishment requires work and lots of planning on your end. One of the most important steps to achieving your goals is to know how much money you will need to make it happen. If you know that, then it's easier to create an action plan and seek out the resources necessary for your success.

Sixth: Read this statement every morning, twice daily.


Make a post-it note or an index card with just the sentence of the goal on it and put it where you will see it when getting ready for work in the mornings or before going to bed at night. While reading your goal aloud, let every phrase sink deeply into your mind until you are confident that these words embody everything about what you want to achieve from life.
