The Habits Of Highly Effective People Stephen R Covey

It feels like Russell Brunson is everywhere these days. He’s 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’s also been giving away 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 videos and articles and then compiled them into this small list of the best.

“A lot has been said lately about leadership. What’s up today, this is Russell Brunson yet again. Nevertheless in beautiful Puerto Rico enjoying some of the best marketers, thought leaders, and personal development gurus on the planet. My goal is simple, to help you become your own best boss, regardless of whether you’re young or old.”

“If you are not doing anything, stop doing nothing. Don’t go chasing every limelight available, do not 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 that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Today, that dream is now reality.”

“The difference between failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they’ll be. The issue is that most people never find out the way to do enough to make it successful, 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 is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Have you ever noticed that few people 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 did not know.”

“The only way to get to leadership is to accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers, and then start to find them out. If you’re unwilling to change, that’s the indication of a person who doesn’t want to lead.” “The first step to leadership is having the ability to see where you are not going and fixing that.” “A great leader doesn’t just bark out orders; he also listens to what his people are telling him and utilizes that information to develop new ideas.”

“A fantastic leader understands that leaders get great 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 no one likes a do-it-yourself; everyone wants some assistance along the way. They recognize that it’s not enough to just know the right thing to do; they must be able to carry it out.” “The best leaders aren’t afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Mistakes are an essential 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 clients will trust your judgment and take your advice more seriously when you’re careful about their interests and their needs.” “You don’t have to be perfect to be good in business; 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 ought to be an expression of who you are.”

This book discusses various leadership styles. It lists the features of each style, which include: 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 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 trainer.

He’s written a very interesting and thought provoking read that everyone should read. If you are looking for an excellent introduction to the subject, with good information and effective leadership approaches, this is it. Highly suggested.
