It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for many magazines, he has been on TV numerous times, and has been invited to think tanks and discussion groups to discuss his ideas. But have you noticed that he has also been giving out free advice about events and leadership 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 small list of the best.
“A lot has been said recently 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 in the world. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best leader, regardless of whether you are 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 somebody else to do something, do it yourself. There are so many 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 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’ll be. The issue is that most people never find out the way 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 price, but it’s nothing compared to what might 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 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 start to find them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the indication 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 uses that information to develop new ideas.”
“A good leader realizes 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 no one likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the perfect 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 mistakes should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”
“A business has a better probability of success if its products or services are exceptional, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients 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 company; 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 this, and it ought to 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 anybody 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’re looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
