It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s 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 has also been giving away free advice about events and leadership and people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotations 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 direction. What’s up now, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Still in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless of whether you’re old or young.”
“If you are not 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 so many ideas out there it is impossible to take the time to learn them. Find one, learn it, and go out and live it. When I left school, 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 people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never discover the way to do enough to make it effective, and if they try, they will fail.”
“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the purchase price, but it’s nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few people who seem 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 start to figure them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the indication of a person who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you’re not going and fixing that.” “A great leader does not just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader realizes that leaders get great results by acting decisively, by showing 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 nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some assistance 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 carry it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but errors 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 customers 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 good in business; the more things you’re willing to risk, the higher your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for this, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”
This book 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 anybody 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 exactly 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 has written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an exceptional introduction to the subject, with solid info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
