Rich Dad Poor Dad Rules

It seems like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for several magazines, he’s been on TV numerous times, and has been invited into more think tanks and discussion groups to go over his ideas. But have you noticed that he’s been giving away free advice about events and leadership and people 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 small collection of the best.

“A lot has been said recently about leadership. 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 in the world. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best boss, irrespective of whether you are young or old.”

“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Do not go chasing every limelight available, don’t sit around waiting for somebody else to do something, do it yourself. There are so many ideas out there it is 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 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 seem to expect that the more they do, the better they’ll be. The problem is that most people never discover how to do enough to make it successful, 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 is nothing compared to what might happen if you succeed. Maybe you have 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 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 is the indication of someone who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is being able to see where you’re not going and fixing that.” “A good leader does not just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”

“A good 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 good leader knows that no one likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some help along the way. They recognize that it is not enough to just know the perfect thing to do; they have to have the ability to carry it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but mistakes 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 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 business; the more things you are 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 it, and it should be a reflection of who you are.”

This publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, which include: modesty, influence, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. 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 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’s 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 recommended.
