Positive energy is a like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets the more powerful you become. Repetition is the key and the more you focus on positive energy the more it becomes your nature state.
The Energy Bus, an international best seller by Jon Gordon, takes readers on an enlightening and inspiring ride that reveals 10 secrets for approaching life and work with the kind of positive, forward thinking that leads to true accomplishment – at work and at home.
Without further ado, here are 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy.
1. You’re the Driver of Your Bus
People feel like they don’t have a choice so they give up. But you do have a choice! Take the wheel and choose to create the life you want … one thought, one belief, one action, one choice at a time. It starts with a decision — decide what you want. Then YOU start creating it. Create your world.
- My vision for my life is (including my health) is …
- My vision for my work, career, job, and team is …
- My vision for my relationship and family is …
It all starts with these three statements and the ENERGY to think about it and to identify what you want.
2. Desire, Vision, and Focus Move Your Bus in the Right Direction
Joy, the bus driver, shares this important piece of wisdom. The more you focus on something, the more you think about it, the more it shows up in our lives. Again, there is energy in thought. Spend your time thinking about what you want rather than what you don’t want. Don’t complain. Complaining is focusing on the negative.
Be a Winner, Not a Whiner!
3. Fuel Your Ride With Positive Energy
There is power in positive energy! It is important. Positive energy will keep your bus moving forward with momentum. As you know, there is a lot of negativity in the world, so choosing positive energy is important to help deal with the negative people and negative situations that can knock you off course.
One passenger on The Energy Bus named Danny shares this formula: E + P = O
“E” stands for “events” in your life. “P” stands for “perception” (and it also could stand for “positive” energy). “O” stands for “outcome”.
You can’t control all the events in your life, but you can control how you perceive them. Your perception can control the outcome.
Remember this, positive energy and positive people create positive results.
4. Invite People on Your Bus and Share Your Vision for the Road Ahead
You cannot always do things by yourself. You need a good team. You need to get like-minded people on your bus, and the more positive people you get, the more positive energy will be created. Share your vision and make it clear what you expect.
5. Don’t Waste Your Energy on Those Who Don’t Get on Your Bus
The enemy is negativity and it’s everywhere. How do you deal with it? Simple. Don’t worry about it. Don’t waste your energy on it. The more you worry about it, the less positive energy you will have.
