Napoleon Hill - The Law Of Success Book And Quotes

If you’ve ever had an interest in Tony Robbins work, then you must read Napoleon Hill’s book “The Law Of Success.” The roots of a lot of Tony’s work come from this book, and if you read every page, by the end, you will see how Tony has taught many of the lessons that are spoken about in a more modern way.

That’s not to take anything away from Tony as he has created a fair amount of new content himself, but like any great, he was clearly inspired by Napoleon Hill. One of the best parts about Napoleons book is the number of incredible quotes that are featured on entire pages throughout.

To save you time, I have handpicked out some of my favourite quotes so that you can read them, and hopefully apply them yourself.
