It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. 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’s also been giving out free advice about events and leadership 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 small collection of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about leadership. What’s up today, 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 boss, 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 someone else to do something, do it yourself. There are so many 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 individuals appear to expect that the longer they do, the better they will be. The issue 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 purchase price, but it’s nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few men and women who appear to live the life that 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 figure them out. If you’re unwilling to change, that is the indication 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 doesn’t just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader realizes that leaders get good 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; everyone wants some help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right 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 until you can get back on your feet.”
“A company has a better probability of success if its products or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your clients 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 characteristics 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 very 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 trainer.
He has written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with solid info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly suggested.
