There are many benefits to being a truck driver: paid to travel, opportunity to visit different towns all over the country, meet new people, freedom of the open road, job security, company benefits… the list goes on. One of the more rewarding advantages of holding a truck driver position is the opportunity for advancement.

As the transportation industry grows, drivers are able to move up the ladder and experience more opportunities from their careers. Opportunities like more miles, newer equipment, better benefits, and of course, more income. So what’s the key to excelling in a truck driving career to reach those perks? We believe a large part is MOTIVATION.

To get anywhere in life, a person must decide for themselves they want to make a positive change to succeed. No one can motivate anyone to do anything. All a person can do for another is provide them with incentives to motivate themselves. We truly believe in and support our drivers, and those looking to join the Smith Transport family. So if you need a little career success motivation to help you get up and get moving toward your untapped potential, check out these 10 quotes that will hopefully inspire you to keep “truckin’ along”:
