It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He has written articles for many magazines, he’s been on TV numerous times, and has been invited into more think tanks and discussion groups to go over his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s been giving out free advice about leadership and events and individuals and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotations and came up with many articles and videos and then compiled them into this little collection of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Still in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you’re young or old.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, do not sit around waiting for someone else to do something, do it yourself. There are a lot of ideas out there it’s impossible to take the time to learn them. Find one, learn it, and go out and live it. When I left college, I said that I wanted to become an entrepreneur. Today, that dream has become reality.”
“The difference between success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most individuals appear to expect that the longer they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never find out the way to do enough to make it successful, and if they try, they’ll fail.”
“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it’s nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few men and women who appear to live the life they’re supposed to live always appear to fail in one way or another? That’s because most of them never took the time to learn what they didn’t know.”
“The only way to get to leadership is to accept the fact that you don’t have all of the answers, and then begin to figure them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the indication of someone who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you’re not going and fixing that.” “A great leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader realizes that leaders get good results by acting decisively, by showing creativity, and by inspiring confidence. Leaders don’t act based on rumors; they rely on solid facts. They plan ahead. They think before they act. They take responsibility.
“A great leader knows that nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they have to be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but mistakes should not stop you until you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better chance of success if its products or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you’re cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be great in company; the more things you’re willing to risk, the higher your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for this, and it ought to be an expression of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, which include: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has ever considered becoming a leader, and especially someone who has a background in business or management. This book gives a very clear picture of just how critical leadership is, and how to develop leadership skills. Russell Brunson is a leader who achieved tremendous success as both an executive and a coach.
He’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly suggested.
