It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. 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 go over his ideas. But have you noticed that he has been giving out free advice about events and leadership 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 direction. 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 in the world. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you are old or young.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, do not sit around waiting for somebody 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 be 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 will be. The issue is that most people never find out how to do enough to make it successful, and if they try, they’ll fail.”
“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the 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 seem 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 of the answers, and then begin to find them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that’s the indication of a person who doesn’t need to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you’re not going and fixing that.” “A great leader doesn’t 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 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 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 perfect 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 until you can get back on your feet.”
“A company has a better chance of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you are cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you’re 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 this, and it should be an expression of who you are.”
This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and respect. 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 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 has written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an exceptional introduction to the subject, with solid info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
