It feels 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 go over his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s been giving out 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 small collection of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about leadership. 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 leader, 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 college, 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 people appear to expect that the more they do, the better they will be. The problem is that most people never discover how to do enough to make it effective, and if they try, they’ll fail.”
“What is the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the purchase price, but it is nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few men and women who seem to live the life that 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 did not know.”
“The only way to get to leadership is to accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers, and then start to find them out. If you are reluctant to change, that’s the sign of a person who doesn’t need to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A good leader doesn’t 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 good leader understands that leaders get good 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; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they must have the ability to carry 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 probability of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re careful about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you are 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 publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, including: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and respect. I strongly 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 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 an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
