Motivation.

It’s the one thing that everyone needs. It’s essential.

Without it, talent would mean nothing. After all, talent is only going to get you so far, but it’s motivation that’s going to push you forward, especially when you feel like quitting, or have endured failure.

Yes, this very much relates to the food truck industry.

No matter how 2017 went, we want food truck owners to be motivated entering the new year. We want food truck owners to be so motivated that they think anything is possible in 2018 (in reality, it is). We want food truck owners to hit the ground running and never look back.

So, in hopes of making that happen, we decided to gather up some FoodTruckr articles that will help mobile kitchen owners in the motivation department, and they can be found below.

How Food Truck Owners Can Stay Motivated During The Offseason

The key during this time is to not only have a plan, but to try and stay motivated as well. If you live in a place where cold temperatures and snow really take over during the winter, then your plan might be winterizing your mobile kitchen and taking the season off. However, if you plan on staying open all winter long, then you have to stay motivated, and the tips below should help.

3 Ways Food Truck Owners Can Stay Motivated During Tough Times

Now, these tough times will come in many different forms. For example, your business might not be making as much money as it should be making, or you could have trouble booking catering gigs. You might even have to deal with bad employees. Realistically, these tough times could be anything and everything.

2 Unique Ways To Stay Motivated When You Want To Quit As A Food Truck Owner

Food truck owners not only have to put in the long hours (try 10-plus hours six to seven days a week) but they also have to run an entire business. While doing this, they have to make sure each and every meal is flooding with quality, they have to train and manage employees (luckily for most food truck owners, it might not be too many employees), they have to come up with social media/marketing strategies — and implement them — they have to worry about sales and the list could go on and on.

How Food Truck Owners Can Find Motivation In Every Single Day

6. One Word … Reflect: Reflecting is one of the most powerful things you can do when it comes to gaining motivation. After all, reflection is the process of analyzing what you are doing right and wrong. Reflection, in a nutshell, allows you to look at your entire situation, and you should be doing it on a routine basis, not just once a year around the end of the year. Just think of it this way: Around New Year’s Eve, people tend to reflect on the year they just had, and it is typically very motivating (and eye-opening). Well, you can harness that magic, if you will, all of the time — if you reflect on a routine basis, that is.

15 Motivational Quotes To Help Food Truck Owners End 2017 On A Strong Note

15. “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” — Michael Jordan

14. “When opportunity presents itself, don’t be afraid to go after it.” — Eddie Kennison

13. “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.” — Mark Victor Hansen
