It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He has written articles for several 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 has also been giving away free advice about leadership and events and people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotes and came up with many articles and videos and then compiled them into this small list of the best.
“A lot has been said lately about direction. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Still 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 are young or old.”
“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 a lot of ideas out there it’s impossible 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 failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they will be. The problem is that most people never discover how to do enough to make it successful, and if they try, they’ll 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. Maybe you have 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 is because most of them never took the time to learn what they did not 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 find them out. If you are reluctant to change, that’s the indication of a person who doesn’t want 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 fantastic leader realizes 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 good 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 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 mistakes should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better probability of success if its goods or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you’re cautious 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 greater your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for it, and it ought to be an expression of who you are.”
This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. I strongly 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 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 trainer.
He has written an extremely 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 strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
