Supposed you were proactive in learning how to make a better choices in certain situations by actually thinking through your response prior to entering those situations.

Suppose you were able to avoid a lot of drama and pitfalls in trucking life, trucking jobs, OTR relationships, driver health, parenting, etc.

Winning at Life

It might not be popular to say this, but it is easy to win at life when you really think about it and look at the big picture.  Listen, people are so slack that they too lazy to use turn signals.  Professional drivers, police officers, road construction people....

We Assign Meaning to Things

It's interesting.  We assign meanings that we don't like to things and then complain about the meaning.  Often either its all in our head or it's in the head of someone else and we don't have to accept it!

But too often we do.  Why!?!

Make sure we are not wasting time protesting things that will not make a difference.  Flags, statues and anthems has never and will never hold me back I suggest you adopt the same attitude.

Not necessarily about the same thing but about anything that is supposed to be oppressing you or making you a victim.  You don't ever have to be a victim regardless of what someone else puts you through.

But that's not the real issue.  Make sure you are not holding yourself back more than others.
