It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for many 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 people and what works? I recently did a search for Russell Brunson quotations and came up with many articles and videos and then compiled them into this little collection of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Still in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best leader, irrespective of whether you’re old or young.”
“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’s impossible 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 has become reality.”
“The difference between success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most people appear to expect that the longer 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 will fail.”
“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the purchase price, but it is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who seem to live the life that 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 the answers, and then begin to find 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 having the ability to see where you are 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 utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”
“A good leader realizes 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 help along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they must 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 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 widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you’re 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 ought to 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 anybody 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 tremendous 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 excellent introduction to the subject, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
