It seems 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 into more think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s also been giving out free advice about leadership and events and people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotations and came up with many articles and videos and then compiled them into this little collection 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 leader, irrespective of whether you are young or old.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not 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 not possible 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 failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most individuals seem to expect that the more they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never find out the way 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’s nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people 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 of the answers, and then start to figure them out. If you are reluctant to change, that’s the sign of someone who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you’re 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 fantastic leader understands that leaders get good 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 good 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 have to 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 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 clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you are 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 chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for it, and it should be an expression of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. 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 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 a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the topic, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
