It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s 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 has also been giving out free advice about leadership and events and individuals 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 small list of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about direction. What’s up now, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus in the world. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless of whether you are 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’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 is now 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 discover 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 purchase price, but it is nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who seem 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 are unwilling to change, that’s the sign of someone 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 does not 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 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 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 have to have the ability 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 mistakes 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 broadly available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t 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 it, and it ought to be an expression of who you are.”
This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. 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’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an exceptional introduction to the subject, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
