It feels 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 into more 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 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 lately about direction. What’s up now, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the finest 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’re young or old.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t 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 school, I said 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 people seem to expect that the more they do, the better they will 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 is the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it’s nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Have you ever 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 did not 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 unwilling to change, that’s the sign of a person 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 great leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”
“A good leader understands that leaders get great results by acting decisively, by demonstrating 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 help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but errors should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better probability of success if its goods or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re careful about their interests and their needs.” “You do not have to be perfect to be good 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 will 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 features of each style, which include: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. I strongly recommend this book to anybody who has ever considered becoming a leader, and especially someone that has a background in business or management. This book gives a 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 coach.
He’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
