You are not everyone’s cup of tea and that is okay. When we accept that we aren't everyone's cup of tea, we become free; we no longer feel obligated to be everyone's favorite.

In today’s episode, I will talk about a book titled The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy, an international bestseller by Jon Gordon. The book is about mindset and optimism. It teaches us that we have control over our mood and perspective every day. We have to remember that our energy is contagious in all ways.

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 for doing 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 are 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.
