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 to think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he has been giving out free advice about leadership and events and people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotations and came up with many videos and articles and then compiled them into this small list 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 best 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 old or young.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not 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 not possible 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 be an entrepreneur. Today, that dream has become reality.”
“The difference between failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never discover how to do enough to make it successful, 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. Have you ever noticed that few men and women who appear to live the life that they’re supposed to live always appear 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 the answers, and then start to find them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the indication of someone 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 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 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; everybody wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they have to be able to take it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but mistakes should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better chance of success if its goods or services are exceptional, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more 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’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 characteristics of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. 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 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 exceptional introduction to the topic, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
