In the introduction of "The Energy Bus" Jon Gordon says "there is an abundance of new research that shows that positive people, positive communication, positive interactions, and positive work and team cultures produce positive results", but I don't need research to tell me that. The basic lesson in this book is to be positive in everything you do in life and others will pick up on that positive energy which will result in positive results for yourself and your company. This message is delivered through a parable about a bus driver that teaches people how to live positive lives. Posted on the front of the bus is these 10 rules "for the ride of your life":

 

1. You're the driver of your own bus.

2. Desire, vision, and focus move your bus in the right direction..

3. Fuel your bus with positive energy.

4. Invite people on your bus and share your vision for the road ahead.

5. Don't waste your energy on those who don't get on your bus.

6. Post a sign that says "No Energy Vampires Allowed"

7. Enthusiasm attracts more passengers and energizes them during the ride.

8. Love your passengers.

9. Drive with purpose.

10. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

 

Sounds like pretty good rules to live by to me.

 

There is more information on the website www.TheEnergyBus.com. The back of the book has a quick action plan which seems helpful. It should be available on the website.

Biggest Takeaway: I need to keep a positive attitude in my personal and business life. Investing time and energy in the people around me will lead me in the direction of a happier and more successful life.
