Big Rock Theory Stephen Covey

It feels 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 to think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he has also been giving away free advice about events and leadership 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 small collection of the best.

“A lot has been said lately about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best leader, irrespective of whether you’re old or young.”

“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t 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 not possible to take the time to learn them. Find one, learn it, and go out and live it. When I left school, I said I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Today, that dream is now reality.”

“The difference between success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most people appear to expect that the more they do, the better they will be. The issue is that most people never discover how to do enough to make it successful, and if they try, they will fail.”

“What is the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it is nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who appear to live the life they’re supposed to live always seem 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 direction is to accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers, and then begin to figure them out. If you are reluctant to change, that is the sign of a person who doesn’t need to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A good leader does not just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop new ideas.”

“A good leader understands 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; everyone wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential part of learning, but errors should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”

“A company has a better chance of success if its goods or services are exceptional, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you are careful about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you are willing to risk, the greater your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for it, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”

This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever considered becoming a leader, and especially someone that 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 enormous success as both an executive and a coach.

He’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
