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 discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s also been giving out free advice about events and leadership and individuals 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 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 objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you’re young or old.”
“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t go chasing every limelight available, don’t 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 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 issue is that most people never discover how 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 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 seem 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 the answers, and then begin to find them out. If you’re unwilling to change, that’s the indication of someone 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 uses that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A good leader realizes that leaders get great 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 nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they have to have the ability 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 errors should not stop you before 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 broadly 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 good in company; the more things you are willing to risk, the higher your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you 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, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I highly recommend this book to anybody 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 tremendous success as both an executive and a coach.
He’s written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the topic, with solid info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly suggested.
