It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He has 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’s 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 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. Nevertheless 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 are 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 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 school, I said that I wanted to be 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 successful, 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. Have you ever noticed that few people who appear 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 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 is the sign of someone who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you are 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 uses 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 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 nobody 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 carry it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential part of learning, but mistakes should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better probability of success if its products or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you are careful about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you are willing to risk, the higher your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for it, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, which include: modesty, sway, 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 very 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 trainer.
He’s written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with good info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
