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 into more think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he has also been giving out free advice about events and leadership and people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotes 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 leadership. 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 on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you’re young or old.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t go chasing every limelight available, don’t 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 college, I said I wanted to become an entrepreneur. Today, that dream is now reality.”
“The difference between success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most individuals appear to expect that the more 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 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 appear to fail in one way or another? That’s 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 the answers, and then begin to figure them out. If you are reluctant to change, that’s the sign of someone 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 great leader does not just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader realizes that leaders get great results by acting decisively, by demonstrating 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 great leader knows that nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must have the ability 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 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 unique, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your customers 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 great 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 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 features of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I strongly 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 very 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 solid info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
