It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s 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 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 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 finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless 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’s impossible to take the time to learn them. Find one, learn it, and go out and live it. When I left college, I said that I wanted to be 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 discover 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 purchase price, but it is nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who seem to live the life that they’re supposed to live always seem to fail in one way or another? That’s 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 start to find them out. If you’re unwilling 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’re not going and fixing that.” “A great leader does not just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop new ideas.”
“A good leader understands that leaders get good results by acting decisively, by showing creativity, and by inspiring confidence. Leaders don’t 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 perfect thing to do; they have to have the ability to take it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but mistakes should not stop you until 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 broadly available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be good 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 characteristics of each style, which include: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. 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 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 has written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
