I don’t know about you, but I love recommended reading lists! The Energy Bus is a must read for anyone who wants to experience a fulfilling, happy life. This book was recommended to me by a dear friend who was filled with an unmatched zest for life. He was one of those charismatic individuals whose presence brightened any room. His energy, positive attitude, and optimism changed my life. I met him while coaching in the athlete weight room during grad school. He was just finishing his Bachelor’s degree while I was starting my Master’s degree in Exercise Science. Although he was a bit younger, he had so much invaluable wisdom to share. He was certainly wise beyond his years. Unfortunately, those years ended far too soon when he burned out and committed suicide in 2015.

Although no longer physically with us, his positive energy and legacy live on within the happiness of many people. I read this book and listened to the audio version more than once. The Energy Bus is by far one of my favorite stories. Keep reading for some of my take-away points for this recommended reading.

My Favorite Quote

“Too blessed to be stressed.”

What Does This Mean?

Your bus is going through life- open your eyes so you can see the beauty.

Reflect more: enjoy more moments, more sunrises and sunsets, more moments of joy

Take more risks and chances- life is too short not to go for it

Leave a legacy for future generations- the best legacy is a world that has been impacted and touched by your presence, your joy, and your positive interactions

What Did I Learn?

This is my bus. I’m driving and going where I want- how I want. I can take the wheel and change direction anytime. The power is mine. I choose my attitude, my energy. Life is energy, so when I choose my energy, I choose my life.

My smile is my superpower. When I smile, everything changes. Smile more, think less. This is my life- my bus, and it’s up to me to use my superpower to influence change- in myself, in others, and in the world around me.

Where do I want to go? Have a vision; know my purpose. When I have a desire, I have the power to make it happen. Have faith, confidence, and smile… because this is my bus, and I’m the driver.

What Else Does This Book Offer?

Law of attraction: When we focus on something and give something our attention, that thing, emotion, experience, or whatever it may be tends to show up more in our lives. For example, if we focus on our stressors and feeling stressed, we might feel even more stressed! If we focus on being positive and optimistic, we might feel more in control. This second example allows us to focus our energy on more positives, and those feelings and experiences are reciprocated back to us. What we think about, we attract. Spend time thinking about what we want; spend less time thinking about what we don’t want!

Visualization of positive experiences and performances project positive energy. “We live in an energy field of dreams.”
