It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He has written articles for many magazines, he has 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 has also been giving out free advice about leadership and events and people 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 list 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 finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless of whether you are old or young.”
“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, do not 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 success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most individuals seem to expect that the more they do, the better they will be. The problem is that most people never find out the way to do enough to make it effective, 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 is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few men and women who seem to live the life they’re supposed to live always appear to fail in one way or another? That is 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 are unwilling to change, that is the sign of a person who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A good leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader realizes that leaders get good 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 no one likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some help along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they have to be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential part of learning, but errors should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A company has a better probability 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 careful about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be good in company; the more things you are willing to risk, the greater your chances 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 characteristics 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 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 trainer.
He has written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the topic, with solid info and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
