Book: The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy
Author: Jon Gordon
How did you hear about this book? I went to a conference where Jon Gordon was to be a headline speaker. Not knowing anything about him, I thought it would be a good idea to read his work to get to know his ideas and become familiar with the presentation. I picked up The Energy Bus at the library and read it on my flight.
What is the main lesson you learned from this book? It had a profound impact on how often I portrayed the life of the passengers on the “bus” who felt “down and out.” After hearing Jon’s full speech, I was truly taken that it was possible to live the way pointed out by the bus driver. And by going with that line of thinking would be much better off in every way; my business, my personal life, my friendships. They would all benefit.
One practical piece of advice from this book: Everything happens for a reason, so you should learn to make the most of it. People who need the most help are often the least open to receiving it. You’re the driver of your own bus, and you’re responsible for fueling it with positive energy, inviting the right people along for the ride and driving with purpose!
This book is an ideal pick for: Anyone looking for quick inspiration. It’s an easy read with bite-sized advice that can be finished in one 2-hour sitting. It’s great for everyone from teenagers to adults.
