Have a Specific Plan and Goals
Over the years I have known THOUSANDS of truckers, including company drivers, lease drivers, owner operators, small fleet owners and some large fleet owners too.
I can tell you that the most successful among them all have specific plans and theya ree always working toward the enxt goal.
Likewise the ones who do the worst are the ones just bumbling around from thing to thing with no real purpose at all. They stumple upon some things that work out and are liucky – sometimes – and other times it ends more quickly.
So what is it you want to accomplish with your own Trucking Business and how are you planning on actually doing that?
Join a Group of Other Like Minded People and Build Alliances
Ever read Napolaen Hill’s books? If not you need to. If you have then you are already at least somewhat familaiar with the concept. One of the big things he talked about si that no one who achieved greta success in busines sna din life did it alone. The all had help. That was key to success and it was also carried tp a much higher leverl by what Hill called a Mastermind Alliance.. In simple terms it just means two or more people working togetehr toward a common purpose.
this may soudn a bit strange if you are eharing it for the first time – yet it is somthing that has been done by presidents and business leaders, entrepernerus and all kinds of other very successful people for ages. It is not new and it is not a secret – yet it is also NOT commonly done by the masses – which is one of the reaosn why so many peopl fail as most of what they try.
In the old days groups had to meet face to face – and while that is still away to do it and nice when it can be done (except during pandemics!) technology now makes it possible to conduct and participate in a mastermind group quickly and easily no matter where you are physically loacted.
Zoom, Skype and other similar things make it easy adn affordable.
So connect wth other like minded people and start getting ahead and achieveing more success in your own trucking business and in life instead of just struggling to get by all the time.
