The Energy Bus
Rule #1: You are the driver of your bus.
Most of the times it takes crisis for us to change, but every crisis offers an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser, to reach deep within and discover a better you and a better outcome.
It's our bus and our trip!
If we don't take responsibilities for our life and control of our bus, we will be at the will of every-one else's travel plans
Only we can choose our attitude and our energy.
A smile changes the way we feel, the way we think and our interactions.
It's our bus, we have the best seat and vision, we
to know WHERE WE WANT TO GO!!!
"Every journey begins with a desire to go somewhere and do something, if you have the
you also have the
r to make it happen"
Rule #2: Desire, Vision, and Focus,
Move your bus in the right direction.
It's all about focus; the more we focus on something, the more we think on it, the more it shows up in our lives.
Thoughts are magnetic,we should
think positive
We have to spend time thinking about what
we want
rather than what we don't want in our lives.
Complains are just the fuel for more complains.
To change our situation, we have to start by changing our thoughts.
Events in life plus perception equals
, we can't control the events, but we can control the perception and will lead to the outcome.
Positive energy and positive people lead to positive results.
Positive energy makes us feel great, instead of negative energy that drains us out.
Rule #3: Fuel your ride with positive energy
We should think in the good things we have in our life, instead of the negative stuff.
"We must fuel up daily with positive thoughts, cultivate positive feelings and take positive actions"
Happiness is not about appearances, is about how we feel, not everything is what we have, but what we are!!!
Let's learn to be grateful, count our blessings, in that way we fill our brain with positive endorphins and emotions that altogether with some exercise will be a powerful energy booster
At the end of the day remember the good things that happen during the day.
Positive energy is something people can feel on us, either we have or not.
Rule#4: Invite People On your bus and Share your Vision for the road ahead.
Build your team with positive people who support us.
Always communicate what our projects are with our team, family, friends, be clear on which vision is and what we expect from them, if trey are no clear on our projects it's less probable they will be willing to support us
We have not fail until we stop trying, there is always negativity around, everywhere and in everything, the only difference is how we manage that
Negativity kills!!! self doubt, fear, hopelessness and negative energy drain and sabotage us.
Everything happens for a reason.

Positive energy is made up from trust
faith, enthusiasm, purpose, joy
and happiness.

Rule # 5: Don't waste your energy on those who don't get on the bus
Everyone has to make their own choices.
Never waste time on the people that don't get on our bus, because that would drain positive energy for the people who are already with us.
Be very careful about the people we allow on our bus.
Remember there are people who increase and there are people who drain our
No energy Vampires allowed
, they suck the life of our goals, our vision and ourselves.
Clean our bus, means eliminate any negativity, that includes negative people.
Rule# 6: Post a sign that says "NO ENERGY VAMPIRES ALLOWED"
We have to be strong to tell people that there is no negativity allowed on our lives, because what we need is a positive and supportive team, if they are not aligned we give them an opportunity to be with us, if they don't want to do it, they will have to be kicked out the bus.
Our positive energy and vision must be greater than anyone's negativity, our certainty must be greater that anyone's doubt.
There will always be people who don't want us to success because that makes them see their own weakness and failure, they are just trying to make the rest of the people fail
Believe in your dreams!
When we have energy Vampires that we cannot kick out of our bus, we should keep it up with our positive energy.
Positive energy is like a muscle, the more we use it the stronger and more powerful it gets.
It is better to have people that are willing to be on our bus, that people that excel their jobs but that are negative about our projects.
Rule #6: Post a sign that says "NO ENERGY VAMPIRES ALLOWED" (cont.)
As we find the value on ourselves, we will be more proud of us.
We have to understand that people who gets on our bus need us
also on theirs, it's a win win situation.
Our main goal should be not beat anybody else, but what we were yesterday, is a marathon not a run.
We are the ones on charge of taking control of our emotions, charge ourselves and let the positive energy flow, when we are feeling good, everyone around us feel good, and feeling good is about joy, happiness, enthusiasm, gratitude, passion and excitement.
It's all about the heart, sometimes we have to feel broken and destroyed, so we can start feeling our ultimate power.
There is a difference between manage and lead, when we manage people tend to feel negative, the productivity drops and the moral problems start to be our enemy, when we lead people start to believe is us, to be with us and because of respect they tend to follow us.
"The heart electromagnetic is 5000 times more powerful than the brain" so that means we are broadcasting our energy (positive or negative) with every heartbeat, we can share POSITIVE, POWERFUL AND CONTAGIOUS ENERGY to people around us.
Rule#7: Enthusiasm attracts more passenger and energizes them during the ride.
Be a CEO (Chief Energy Officer) someone that lives and work with enthusiasm,
don't let fear stop you, look at the challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, when people see that in you, they will WANT to get on your bus!

We convince with our presence, when we are positive our energy convinces people to get on our bus.
Your enthusiasm and positive energy should be real to inspire, it should come from your heart, you don't have to force it, just live it, and it will do the rest for you.
Focus today in becoming the heart of your organization, your family, your friends and you will feel the change.

Love is the answer! Cosmos, Karma, God, whichever you believe is, will help the things to fall into place so you can take advantage of the road ahead.
Rule #8: Love your Passengers
Become a love magnet; sharing love generously, people around us just want to feel loved, that we recognize and care about them.
Trophies, awards, recognitions could be given to the people and get forgotten with time, but people will never forget how we make them feel, that's why we should make them feel loved and appreciated.
People around us want to feel we care about them and we are concern about their future, their projects, that we want to help them to reach their goals, that they are no number.
In business is the same, people do business with people they like, when our customers feel that they are not a number or just money for us, but we care about them, they will be more loyal to us, just because of love.
Enthusiasm gets people excited about being on our bus, but LOVE is what keep them with you.
Love is the more powerful emotion available to us, and it takes time, it's a process not a goal
The real value of everyone is inside, we have to try to discover their strengths and help them to share their gifts, that's real love.
5 ways to love your passengers
Make time for them:
nurture the relationship,, spend time with them, get to know them as people not numbers, cultivate your team with love, be engaged with the present moment, focus your energy on the moment you spend with them
Listen to them:
customers just wants to be heard, most of our conversations today does not include active listening, practice it by asking someone how they are doing and actually wait for the answer and make eye contact.
Recognize them:
honor them for who they are and what they do, praise people when they are doing things right, feed the positive dog
Serve them:
serve their growth, their future, their careers, the more we serve people around the more help we are going to receive on our bus.
Bring out the best on them:
help them to discover the best in them and provide possibilities to use those strengths, is a win-win situation!
Rule #9:
Drive with purpose
Purpose is the ultimate fuel for our journey through life, when we drive with purpose we don't get tired and our engines don't burn out, even if we are sweeping the floors or managing a huge company big purpose and vision to our life make the ride easier, purpose is what life is about.
We shouldn't get inspired by the goal of the month or the Quarter, but something bigger, something that inspires us every day to go and give our 100%.
Teams should be a representation of a successful rock band, where everyone plays different instruments but the result is a sweet melody.
Feel blessed for all the things you have received during your life, your blessings for today, you woke up, you have a job, you have a roof over your head, food, a car, a lot of stuff not all the people enjoy; when you feel blessed, you don't have time to feel stressed.
"The goal in life is to live young, have fun, and arrive at your final destination as late as possible with a smile on your face"
Rule# 10
Have fun and enjoy the ride
No one lives for ever, the wealth we accumulate, the power, degrees or possessions are not going to be with us when our bus ride is over, let's leave the small issues and enjoy the ride.
3 things people regret when old:1) They would love to have enjoyed more the moments of joy, more sunrises and sunsets.2) They would love to have taken more risks. 3)They would like to have left a legacy.
Live and work as you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
The best legacy we leave is world that has been impacted and touched by your presence, your joy and your positive actions.
Every time we face a challenge, we should think; what can i learn from this? stay positive and it will make us stronger, wiser and better people.
