It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He has written articles for many magazines, he’s been on TV numerous times, and has been invited into more think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s also been giving away 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 little collection of the best.
“A lot has been said lately 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 on the planet. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best leader, regardless of whether you are old or young.”
“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, don’t sit around waiting for somebody else to do something, do it yourself. There are so many ideas out there it is 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 be an entrepreneur. Today, that dream has become reality.”
“The difference between failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the more they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never find out how to do enough to make it effective, and if they try, they’ll 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. Maybe you have noticed that few men and women 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 start to find them out. If you’re 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’re not going and fixing that.” “A great leader does not just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to develop new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader understands that leaders get great 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 great leader knows that nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everybody 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 take it out.” “The best leaders are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential part of learning, but errors should not stop you until you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better chance of success if its goods or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers 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 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 it, and it ought to be a reflection 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 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 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 excellent introduction to the subject, with good info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
