The Energy Bus

The Energy Bus

by Jon Gordon


We all go through rough life patches when everything seems to be falling apart. Author Jon Gordon experienced this first hand. He struggled at work, his team was imploding, and, due to all the stress, his family life was falling apart as well. After being fired from his job at a dot-com startup, his wife began questioning their relationship.

Gordon came to the conclusion that trying to understand why his circumstances had changed so much was the only way he could turn things around. He thought about his life, motivation, and purpose. He realized that what he really wanted out of life was to write and speak. He then immediately implemented the changes and started working towards his new goal.

Three weeks later, he finished the manuscript for The Energy Bus. In this book, he teaches you how to embrace the right mindset to take control of your existence, make your dreams come true, and improve your relationships. Through being accountable for yourself, adopting a positive outlook on life, and connecting with your loved ones on a deeper level, you'll unlock your potential for a truly happy life.

Favorite quote

Positive energy is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets, the more powerful you become. The more you focus on positive energy, the more it becomes your natural state.
