It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He has written articles for many magazines, he’s 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 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 articles and videos and then compiled them into this little collection of the best.
“A lot has been said recently about direction. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Still in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My objective is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless of whether you are young or old.”
“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t go chasing every limelight available, do not sit around waiting for somebody 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 I wanted to be 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’ll be. The problem is that most people never discover the way 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 could happen if you succeed. Have you ever 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 is 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 the answers, and then start to find them out. If you are unwilling 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’re not going and fixing that.” “A good leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”
“A good leader understands 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 nobody likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they have to 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 business has a better probability of success if its goods or services are unique, well priced, and widely available.” “Your customers will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you are cautious about their interests and their needs.” “You do not 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 should be an expression 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 strongly 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 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’s written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an excellent introduction to the topic, with solid information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly suggested.
