Interislander Ferry Times From Picton

It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s written articles for many magazines, he has been on TV numerous times, and has been invited to 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 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 little list of the best.

“A lot has been said recently about leadership. What’s up today, 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 are old or young.”

“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, do not sit around waiting for somebody else to do something, do it yourself. There are a lot of 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 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 appear to expect that the longer they do, the better they will be. The problem is that most people never find out 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 could happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few people who appear 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 leadership is to accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers, and then begin to find them out. If you are reluctant 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’re not going and fixing that.” “A good leader does not just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”

“A good leader realizes that leaders get great 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; everyone wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they have to be able to carry 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 company has a better chance of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you are cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be good in company; the more things you’re 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 it, and it ought to be a reflection of who you are.”

This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, including: modesty, sway, 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 clear picture of exactly how critical leadership is, and how to develop leadership skills. Russell Brunson is a leader who achieved enormous success as both an executive and a trainer.

He has written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the topic, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
