I don’t know about you, but I really get tired of seeing headlines that state “If I had only been in the right place at the right time!”
A few people do actually fall into a great deal, they where in the right place at the right time, when the stars where all aligned.
Yet, it may only happen once in a lifetime!
For the rest of us, we must create our own luck if you really want to call it that!
Most of us really cannot see the gold-mine that is right in front of us, due to all the noise and distraction that fills our lives everyday.
When I was a kid, my dad was an over-the-road truck driver. Yes, you guessed it he was gone all the time, home for a few hours and then off again to some new destination.
Today there are so many of these OTR truck drivers out there, trying to earn a living in an economy that no doubt will be listed as one of the most trying moments in history, right next the great depression.
One of the things I remembered growing up was when the economy slowed down so did my fathers income. Today the problem is really pronounced.
If you visit any of the forums these truckers visit anger and frustration, the majority have taken pay-cuts, how hasn’t in this economy?
Since most truckers get paid by the mile, as they say “if the wheels are not turning they are not making any money!”
When you couple this with the fact that they are gone from home three weeks or more at a time, and spend a large amount of time sitting in a truck waiting for the next load you can see how frustrated they become!
Well in reality, you and I can’t really see or feel what it’s really like. As one person said go out and run your car or truck until it gets cold inside then shut it off and sit in it for four hours or more, especially when it’s over 90 degrees outside in the sunshine.
Sometimes they do this for days at a time. In all of my reading I, never once read where anyone in this industry was utilizing this down time to run a home based business. After all, they are not getting paid while sitting there waiting.
Many of these Men and Women do carry a laptop and have internet access while out on the road, they could very easily be running an internet based business while they wait.
The point is you cannot know what you don’t know. I’m sure many of them have never really thought about it or they may think it is too difficult.
Yet, I imagine that sitting or hours with nothing to do, one would have plenty of time to educate themselves. Creating their own luck by making every down time the right place and time!
