Thank You for today. Today is happy Saturday. Todays we are catchers of chestnut flowers in windy air. What’s a pleasure and beauty to breath and ti think! I am thinking today about Napoleons.
Napoleon is the Grand Name. The first person which comes first is Napoleon Bonaparte. “One of the most celebrated leaders in the history of the West, he revolutionized military organization and training, sponsored Napoleonic Code, reorganized education and established the long-lived Concordat with the papacy,” I am reading in his biography.
“All historians agree that Napoleon’s remarkable personality was one key to his influence. Although short and not physically imposing, in one-on-one situations he immediately had a hypnotic impact on people and seemingly bent the strongest leaders to his will. Second his intellectual powers were unrivaled. He had a photographic memory for facts, people, events, numbers, military units and maps (…) He was an innovator in using the financial, bureaucratic and diplomatic resources of France. He could instantly organize and integrate all that information, generating brilliant insights on complex situations. He could organize his own thoughts and rapidly dictate a series of complex commands to all his subordinates, keeping in mind where each major unit was expected to be at every future point, and like a chess master, “seeing” the best plays many moves ahead.
Napoleon has become a worldwide cultural icon who symbolises military genius and political power. Martin van Creveld described him as “the most competent human being who ever lived”. from wikipedia
Below I have chosen and would like to share my favorite quotes from Napoleon:
Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
Great ambition is the passion of a great character. Those endowed with it may perform very good or very bad acts. All depends on the principles which direct them.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
Imagination rules the world. Especially I love that. This words are singing in unison with my soul: Imagination rules the world.
Once I will be able to read Napoleon’s thoughts in his original language. I am learning French. I suppose my dream to speak in French fluently will come true soon. I try to learn every day.
At this moment I can read the thoughts and ideas from another Napoleon. This is Napoleon Hill:
“The majority of people are ready to throw their aims and purposes overboard, and give up at the first sign of opposition or misfortune. A few carry on despite all opposition, until they attain their goal. There may be no heroic connotation to the word “persistence,” but the quality is to the character of man what carbon is to steel.” ~ Napoleon Hill from Think and Grow Rich
And, know this, according to Hill: “The ease with which lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the intensity of one’s desire.”
Hill continues: “The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. If you find yourself lacking in persistence, this weakness may be removed by building a stronger fire under your desires.”
Thank You for this meeting with great Napoleons. I am inspired to believe in power of my imagination which rules the world and to be persistent in my desire to realize my potential. Thank You for today.
