It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s written articles for many magazines, he has been on TV numerous times, and has been invited into more 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 people 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 small list of the best.
“A lot has been said lately 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 in the world. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you’re old or young.”
“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t go chasing every limelight available, don’t 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 that I wanted to be 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 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 men and women who appear to live the life they’re supposed to live always appear to fail in one way or another? That is 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’re reluctant to change, that is the sign 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 also listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A good leader understands 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 good 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 perfect thing to do; they must be able to take it out.” “The best leaders aren’t 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 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 seriously when you are cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you’re willing to risk, the greater 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 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 are looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
