“Get off My Bus Tip” #19

Filed under: Look in the Mirror,Take Control,Your Bus — Robin Sacks...Speaker, Author, Performance Coach @ 8:36 am

The sooner you realize that you are in control of stopping and letting somebody off of your bus or stopping and letting someone climb aboard, the sooner you will regain control of your time and energy.


Identify your passengers.

OK, here is the analogy:

You are a bus driver in life and you have an empty bus. When you are born, certain people take a seat on your bus immediately when you pop out (mom, dad, family, etc.). Throughout life, you pick people up on your bus and you drop people off along the way. People are constantly getting on and off of your bus. Some are invited, while others are just along for the ride by virtue of your decisions about life and work. You also have people on your bus who are always on your bus, but move from the front to the back and then from the back to the front, but they are always there on your bus. Then you have people throughout your life whom you pick up and drop off more than once. People who truly do go out of your life and truly come back into your life for a reason.

Some of these passengers are healthy and some are toxic. Are you choosing wisely?

Ask yourself these 5 questions to begin to get clarity:
1. Are YOU driving your bus? (or is someone else?)
2. Where are you going? (or do you not know and are just driving aimlessly through life?)
3. Who needs to get off of your bus?
4. Who needs to get on your bus?
5. Who’s bus do you need to get off of?

Until tomorrow…
