Grant Cardone 10X Growth Conference Journal

It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for many magazines, he’s 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 been giving away free advice about leadership and events 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 little collection 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 finest marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus in the world. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you are old or young.”

“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 is 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 failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they’ll be. The issue is that most people never discover the way to do enough to make it effective, 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’s nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few men and women who appear to live the life that 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 unwilling to change, that is the sign of someone 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 does not 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 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 great leader knows that nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must have the ability to carry it out.” “The best leaders are not 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 chance of success if its products 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 do not have to be perfect to be good in company; the more things you’re willing to risk, the higher your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for this, and it ought to be a reflection of who you are.”

This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, including: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and respect. I highly 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 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’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
