It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He has 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 has also 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 lately 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 on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best leader, irrespective of whether you’re 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 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 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 seem to expect that the longer 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 purchase price, but it is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who seem 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 begin to figure them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the sign of a person who doesn’t need to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A good leader does not just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and uses that information to come up with new ideas.”
“A fantastic leader understands that leaders get great 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 great leader knows that nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must be able to take it out.” “The best leaders are not 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 company has a better chance of success if its goods or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you are cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be great in business; the more things you’re willing to risk, the greater your odds for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you will need to have a passion for this, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”
This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the characteristics of each style, including: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and respect. I highly recommend this book to anyone 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 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 a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
