5 Simple Ways To Get Your Mind Right In The Food Truck Industry

5. Learn The Power Of Music

Okay, so you probably already know the power of music … but if that’s the case, then why aren’t you playing music at your food truck? Why aren’t you listening to upbeat songs when you are feeling down/having a tough day?

Music is so powerful that it can put anyone in any given mood (a single play of a song tends to have that much power). Everyone loves music, more likely than not, so start using it to your advantage, even if you only listen to it in the morning, at night, while you are driving your truck to your next destination or whenever it might be.

While music doesn’t solve all of life’s problems, it can certainly help during times of stress.

4. Make Sure Everyone Is On The Same Page

If your entire team is on the same page, then you’re going to worry less, and so is your food truck team. And if that is the case, then you should be able to rest assured that you and your team are going to crush your next catering gig, food truck event, wedding, etc.

When everyone is on the same page, everyone knows what needs to be done to succeed.

Spoiler alert: The sooner your team is on the same page, and you have relayed everything to them, the sooner you will get your mind right, because uncertainty won’t be an issue — you and your team just have to stick to the plan, and success will be at the end of said plan.

3. Make Room For Downtime

Downtime becomes a bit tricky when you are working 10-plus hours a day, but it can still be achieved.

If you’re new to the food truck industry, then you’re likely going to be doing a whole lot of experimenting until you get your perfect routine down. On the other hand, if you fancy yourself a seasoned veteran in this industry, then you should know what your days are going to consist of. As a result, you will know when you can incorporate some downtime, even if it’s only a few minutes here and there, or for an hour or two at the end of the day.

Nonetheless, this downtime should feature no work. Heck, you shouldn’t even be thinking about work during this sacred time. You could hang out with your family during this time, go for a walk, hit the gym, read a book or whatever it might be — just make sure no work is involved.

2. Eliminate All Negative Aspects From Your Life

One of the best ways to get the mind right in the food truck industry is to eliminate all negative aspects from your life. Admittedly, this is easier said than done, especially if your friends or family members are negative, or you have toxic mindsets yourself.

So many people go through their days dreading … well, everything. They dread when their alarm clocks fire off, they dread going to work, they dread meetings and the dread fest, if you will, goes on and on. Guess what? You decided to be a food truck owner because you wanted to follow your passions/dreams/goals, and you also wanted to live a better life — and that alone should make you extremely happy, because you are in the act of actually following your passions/dreams/goals.

Nonetheless, you will never get your mind right if it’s constantly being clouded by negative people or mindsets. The sooner you eliminate those things, the better.

1. Be Grateful — For Everything

This kind of plays off of the last point, but if you want to be the happiest version of yourself — and spread that joy to others, such as your employees — and if you want to get your mind right, then you have to be grateful.

You should be grateful that you have the opportunity to run your own business, you should be grateful that you have all-star employees, you should be grateful that you get to wake up and do whatever you want to do every single day (even if being a chef is a serious challenge), you should be grateful that your craft, which is cooking, is literally making you money, etc.

Surely, we can all think back to a time that was filled with stress, a time that wasn’t as pleasant as your current state … and you should, at the very least, be grateful that you are no longer living out those days.
