Do you realize how much control you have over the quality and happiness of your life as a trucker? I've heard many people say, "truck drivers don't have a life". For those who looks at it that way, it's true.
However, if you don't want to be that miserable trucker, keep reading.
Don't look at trucking the way the miserable does. They focus on things such as.....
Now that doesn't mean pretend these things are not a part of trucking, it means instead of complaining about the problems, think of solutions to the problems......
For people like me, I love the journey of life as a trucker. It won't be a permanent life long career for me, but I love it while I'm doing it and I'm doing it with a game plan for moving on to other things.
I admit because of my family situation, it's easier for me.
However you too should enter trucking with a plan. That plan for some would include learning what is needed to grow a trucking career or company. For others it will be about fixing credit, saving money and investing in something else so that you can transition out of trucking.
Having some sort of plan, it makes it easier to do the next thing you need to do to create happiness as a trucker..........
For example, with a plan instead of dwelling on you being away from home, you could focus on the goal your moving toward.
For example here are some good ideas to keep in mind...
You should do it with a plan too, whether it's staying in it or moving on to other things.
With a plan for dealing with challenges that come with trucking and setting goals for what you want your life to be, you can be proactive and more easily handle the trucking lifestyle and you don't have to worry about...
These are some issues, excuses and reasons that drivers are unhappy. There are ways to overcome all of these issues so why let them make your unhappy. It's ridiculous.
Figure out how to handle it or change professions!
Some trucker are miserable simple because they hate their trucking job. If this is the case stop complaining and find another trucking job.
Even if you live in the middle of no where, you can likely find a large carrier that can get you home.
Before switching though make sure you aske the questions to see if the trucking company can make you happy by supplying what you need.
I was talking to a guy the other day who blacked out. He was rushed to the Dr. and soon found out that his blood pressure was extremely high and his cholesterol was up. Of course they prescribed him medication.
I asked him what was he going to do differently. He said take the medicine. I said how long are you going to take the medication. He said I will be taking it for the rest of my life I guess.
Like and Share with someone you care about!
I asked what are you going to do differently aside from the medication. He said nothing. I asked, you never considered altering your diet so that you can lower and maintain your blood pressure and cholesterol level?
He said, “I don't eat fruits and I don't eat vegetables and never have.” I asked him have you tried all fruits and veggies. He said it doesn't matter, I won't eat them. I don't like the way they feel in my mouth.
Yes, this really happened yall.
Here is what I want to pass on to you. You sometimes need to examine the things that you do. You need to evaluate how much sense it makes or doesn't make. You need to analyze what motivates you to do some of the things that you do. Sometimes you have to be an adult and be more open minded, creative, reasonable, adventurous or just be more responsible and use common sense about the choices that you make.
You can't get far in life happy, healthy and financially free if you just do things for small minded reasons and don't even try to find ways to improve your habits and lifestyle. If you see that there is something you are doing that is working against you, be open to finding ways to make some changes to get yourself back on track. That is true with your diet, your finances, your relationships and your other goals.
