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 go over his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s also been giving away free advice about events and leadership and individuals and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotes and came up with many videos and articles and then compiled them into this little list of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best leader, regardless of whether you’re old or young.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, do not sit around waiting for somebody else to do something, do it yourself. There are so many 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 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 seem to expect that the more they do, the better they will be. The problem is that most people never discover the way to do enough to make it effective, 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 is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few men and women who appear to live the life that 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 of the answers, and then begin to figure them out. If you are unwilling to change, that’s the indication 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 great leader does not just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader understands that leaders get good results by acting decisively, by demonstrating creativity, and by inspiring confidence. Leaders do not 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 no one likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some help along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they have to have the ability to take it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential part of learning, but mistakes should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better probability of success if its products or services are unique, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you’re careful about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in company; the more things you’re willing to risk, the higher your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for it, and it should 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 respect. I highly 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 exactly 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 trainer.
He’s written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with solid info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
