Points to Ponder from The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy

You are the driver of your own life

We must assume power and responsibility for our lives in order for progress to occur. We have the ability to choose who we want to be and how we want to be. Others will make choices for us if we don’t do this. If you want things to change in your life, you are the responsible one to do that.

Desire, Vision, and Focus Move Your Own Bus in the Right Directions

Move your bus in the right direction. Make sure your attention and energy show up where it needs to go. What you set your focus to, you will achieve.

Fuel Your Ride With Positive Energy

Positive energy takes you where you want to go. We may not control what happens in our life but we can control our reactions. Do not let a bad day affect your whole life. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life! Train your mind to see the good in everything you encounter.

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

Think about your life, your bus. Who do you want in your life with you? Surround yourself with the people you want to be like or influence you to be the better version of yourself.

Don’t waste your time on those who don’t get on the bus

No energy vampires allowed on the bus.  Don’t take it personally that someone may not want to ride your bus. All have the freedom to make their own decision. And you’d rather concentrate your efforts on those who have chosen to board your bus.

Post a sign that says “no energy vampires allowed”  on your bus

Think about the people that sucking the life out of you and how you can make it stop. Positive energy requires positive energy to grow. If people wish to follow you, it’s important that they stick to being optimistic and welcoming rather than pessimistic. Kick-off negative energy from your bus.

Enthusiasm attracts more passengers and energizes them during the ride

Share your positive energy with those around you. Use the heart to communicate. Spread the good vibes to those around you. Personal and professional success is guided by positive and optimistic energy.

Love Your Passengers

Let them know you care about them. Show them that you want the best for them and you want them to shine in their job and daily living. Make time and listen to them.

Drive With Purpose

Think about what you want in life. Know your purpose and always go back to your why.

Have Fun and Enjoy the Ride

You will help the passengers in a variety of ways, including finding time for them, listening to them, remembering them, and saving them when they need it. As the driver, the aim is to bring out the best of them.
