It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He has written articles for several 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 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 articles and videos 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 finest 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’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 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 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 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 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 leadership is to accept the fact that you don’t have all of the answers, and then begin to figure them out. If you are unwilling to change, that’s the sign of a person who doesn’t need to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A good leader does not just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop 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 great leader knows that no one likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right 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 errors should not stop you until you can get back on your feet.”
“A company has a better chance of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you are 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 higher your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for it, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I highly 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 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 coach.
He’s written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an exceptional introduction to the subject, with solid info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly suggested.
