Previously, we posted a blog telling those considering the trucking business as a career what sort of process is involved in actually getting the job. However, what we didn’t mention were the other qualities that are often found in a good trucker. These are qualities that have absolutely nothing to do with doing well in driving school or taking your CDL license test. You see, what people forget about being a trucker a lot of the time is the dedication and the solitude that comes along with it. In other words, the life of a trucker is not for the faint of heart.
First and foremost you have to be patient and prepared for any and all situations. You could leave a warm sunny morning on the Pacific coast one morning and by that night you may be on a snow-covered mountaintop in Colorado. You have to enjoy the adventure that comes with the job. If stability is something you treasure then you may want to consider a different career path.
Secondly, driving a truck can get lonely. Many of the best truckers out there are suckers for solitude and this is beyond important. It’s hard for a lot of people to remain focused and confident in their abilities even on the worst of days. Going to sleep alone, waking up alone, driving all day alone just isn’t for some people. You have to be self -motivated to ensure that you keep moving day after day.
If these are things you have already considered or if after reading this you are still inclined to become a truck driver then all we can say is “GO FOR IT!”.
