Hey guys what's up!
It's Moses here of the driver success channel. And I just got back home.
I'm tired, I'm just getting ready to go take a shower, go to bed, but before I do that I just thought I should make a quick video to help out those of you that are just starting out in the industry because if you can do certain things right, that will help set you up for success in the future. Many truck drivers move from one company to the other thinking that the next company they move to will be a better company and so what you have is drivers that don't have any stable work history because they are always moving from one company to the next.
And so I just want to talk to those of you who are just starting out in the industry. One of the best things that you can do for yourself is really to make sure that you find the right company to work for because if you can find that right company to work for then it means that you will have a stable work history. You'll have a stable life. And the reason why I think drivers move from one company to the next is because they don't know what they really want.
They have never taken the time to look at their priorities in life and know what do they want at any given stage in their life. So I think if you want to excel in this industry take the time to figure out what your priorities are, what is more important to you. Is it how much money you make, is it time with family, is it respect from the company you work for, is it the opportunity that that company offers for you to advance in the company, what are the priorities?
If you can know what your priorities are then you go out and look for the company that will meet those priorities. Talk to the drivers that are working for those companies, ask them what they think about the company, ask them if your priority is to make money, ask them how much money they make. If your priority is to be home, ask them how much home time they make. Knowing what your priorities are and then going out there looking for a company that will meet that priority is very vital.
It's key to your success. What that will do is it will give you stability in life. You will be able to settle down because you will have your priorities right but if you don't know what you really want you always be thinking that another company as what you want and then you will move to that company and then realize maybe they don't have what you want.
I have been with a company that I work for it's coming now to 7 years. And the reason why is because I like their culture, I like the way they treat me, I like the home time I have with my family. I like the atmosphere of the company. I know the managers, I know the dispatchers by face and by name. They know me. There is that culture that I like. And that's why I have been with them for a long time. Can I make more money somewhere else?
Yes I can but is that my priority? No, it's not.
So knowing what your priority is, goes a long way to help you find that company. When you find that company you'll realize that the rest of your life will also kind of stabilize and if it's time for you to move on to another company, at least your resume will show that you are a stable person and employers will always put you ahead of those other people that are always moving from one company to the next.
It will help you stand out from the crowd when it's time for you to move on. So I hope that is something that you can think about. If you can settle down and figure out what you really want, what your priorities are and then look for the company that will meet your priorities. I guarantee you it will set you apart from the rest of the drivers.
So I just wanted to share with you that, I hope it helps you out. I hope you take advantage of it. If you haven't yet subscribed don't forget to subscribe to the channel.
