It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He has written articles for several magazines, he’s 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 also been giving out free advice about leadership and events and individuals 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 small collection of the best.
“A lot has been said lately about direction. 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, irrespective of whether you are old or young.”
“If you are not 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’s 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 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 more they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never discover the way 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 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 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 start to find them out. If you are reluctant to change, that is the sign of a person 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 listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A good leader understands that leaders get good 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 good 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 be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but errors should not stop you until you can get back on your feet.”
“A company has a better chance of success if its products or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice 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 are willing to risk, the higher your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for it, and it should be an expression of who you are.”
This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, including: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. 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 exactly 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 coach.
He’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
