YOU are only half of the equation

YOU are only half of the equation…

Are your passengers healthy or toxic?

OK, here is the analogy:

You are born and you are a bus driver. 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. Some people on your bus are always passengers, but may move from the front to the back or from the back to the front depending on the situation. You may even have people throughout your life that you pick up and drop off more than once.

Some of these passengers are healthy and some are toxic.

So what?

Well…the passengers on your bus play a vital role in YOUR success (or lack there of). You are only as successful as the people with whom you choose to surround yourself.

Are you choosing wisely?

The “Get Off My Bus” concept is really aimed at helping you get clarity about:

1. Who is driving your bus (is someone else in your driver’s seat?)

2. Where are you driving? (do you know or are you just wandering?)

3. Who needs to get off your bus?

4. Who needs to get on your bus?

5. Whose bus do YOU need to get off of? (learning to say “no”)

The book is “Get Off My Bus!: How to Get Clarity, Get in the Driver’s Seat, and Get Moving in Your Life!” by Robin Sacks. Learn more about the author at
