I know that you too will pick up on Jon infectious way, and as you listen to his message please pay close attention to what Jon is saying in, “Training Camp: What the Best Do Better Than Everyone Else”.

Based on his work with professional sports teams, world class organizations, and interviews with top professionals in a wide variety of fields, Jon reveals the deep truths and proven strategies that take the very best to the top. Training Camp reveals that the best performers-in any field-all share the same qualities. Among other traits, the best of the best are able to maintain a big-picture vision while taking focused action, they are mentally strong, they seize the moment, and they inspire excellence in the people around them. But these are not inborn traits; they’re skills and attitudes that can be learned and applied by all.

Jon GordonThe Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy, is a great inspiring read. Simple concepts, but something that we all need to reinforce over and over again.

Jon Gordon, uses this business fable to tell the story about an average guy by the name of George.  George happens upon a set of circumstances that requires him to have to take the bus to work.  Obviously, George is quite angry for he looses his independence and the loss of his car, and has to take the bus to work.

George however is one lucky man for he meets the bus driver, Joy, and gets to learn many lessons about life from her.  Jon Gordon takes takes the reader on a wonderful journey weaving in a great story to assist the reader in understanding some of the lessons we need to learn to manage our life for greater joy, happiness and success.

In my interview with Jon we get to explore the The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy.

Those rules are instrumental in leading a life with enthusiasm, and they are:

1. You’re the driver of your bus.

2. Desire, vision and focus move your bus in the right direction.

3. Fuel your ride with positive energy.

4. Invite people on your bus and share your vision for the road ahead.

5. Don’t waste your energy on those who don’t get on your bus.

6. Post a sign that says no energy vampires allowed on your bus.

7. Enthusiasm attracts more passengers and energizes them during the ride.

8. Love your passengers.

9. Drive with purpose.

10. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

I highly recommend this wonderful book.  The rules are for everyone, and if applied can really change your outlook on life.
