7 Big Rocks Stephen Covey

It seems 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 has also been giving out free advice about events and leadership and people 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 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 leader, regardless of whether you’re young or old.”

“If you aren’t doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t 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 not possible to take the time to learn them. Find one, learn it, and go out and live it. When I left school, I said that I wanted to become an entrepreneur. Today, that dream is now reality.”

“The difference between failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people appear to expect that the more they do, the better they will 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’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few people who appear to live the life they’re supposed to live always appear to fail in one way or another? That’s because most of them never took the time to learn what they did not 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 figure them out. If you’re reluctant to change, that is the sign of someone 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 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 understands that leaders get good 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 perfect thing to do; they have to have the ability to take it out.” “The best leaders aren’t 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 business has a better chance of success if its goods or services are unique, well priced, and broadly available.” “Your clients will trust your judgment and take your advice seriously when you are careful 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 higher your chances 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 publication discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, which include: modesty, sway, honor, assertiveness, and esteem. 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 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 exceptional introduction to the subject, with good info and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly recommended.
