Frankl Viktor 1997 Man’s Search For Meaning

It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s written articles for several 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’s also been giving away free advice about events and leadership 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 collection of the best.

“A lot has been said lately 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 goal is simple, to help you become your own best leader, regardless of whether you are young or old.”

“If you are not 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 impossible 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 is now 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 will be. The problem is that most people never discover the way to do enough to make it successful, 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 is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few people who appear to live the life that they’re supposed to live always seem 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 of the answers, and then start 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 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 understands that leaders get good results by acting decisively, by showing 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 good leader knows that nobody 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 take 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 widely available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you’re 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 odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for it, and it ought to be a reflection of who you are.”

This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. 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 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 exceptional introduction to the subject, with solid information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
