Listen Stephen Covey

It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere nowadays. He’s written articles for several magazines, he has 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’s been giving away free advice about leadership and events 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 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 best 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 someone else to do something, do it yourself. There are a lot of 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 I wanted to become an entrepreneur. Today, that dream has become reality.”

“The difference between success and failure is the amount of work you put in. Most people 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 effective, and if they try, they will fail.”

“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it’s nothing compared to what might 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 appear 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 of the answers, and then start to find them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that’s the indication 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 does not 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 good leader knows that no one likes a do-it-yourself; everybody wants some assistance 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 are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are a crucial part of learning, but errors should not stop you before you can get back on your feet.”

“A company has a better probability of success if its products or services are exceptional, 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 don’t have to be perfect to be good in business; the more things you’re willing to risk, the greater your chances for success.” “To be truly great at what you do, you need to have a passion for this, and it should be an expression 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 anybody who has ever considered becoming a leader, and especially someone who 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 tremendous success as both an executive and a coach.

He has written an extremely interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you’re looking for an exceptional introduction to the topic, with good information and effective leadership strategies, this is it. Highly recommended.
