It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for several magazines, he has 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 away 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 videos and articles and then compiled them into this little collection of the best.
“A lot has been said lately about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus in the world. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best leader, regardless of whether you’re 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 someone 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 I wanted to become an entrepreneur. Today, that dream is now 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 issue is that most people never find out the way to do enough to make it effective, and if they try, they will fail.”
“What’s 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 men and women who seem to live the life 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 direction is to accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers, and then start to figure them out. If you’re unwilling 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 great leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop new ideas.”
“A fantastic 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 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 perfect thing to do; they have to be able to take it out.” “The best leaders are not 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 business has a better chance of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in company; the more things you’re willing to risk, the greater your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for this, and it should be an expression of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, which include: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. I highly 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 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 coach.
He’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
