There is a saying "when it rains, it pours" which pertains to difficult situations and misfortunes that follow each other. Rain usually connotes negativity or sadness. When it rains, all our activities are hampered. Streets get flooded. Sometimes, it gets us to look back on sad memories. No matter what though, there is still some positivity behind the rains that may hamper our activities or that may make us blue. Rain makes the crops grow. It brings more water around.
While the rain may hamper our activities, it gets the air cool. It waters our plants. It brings more nourishment to the trees that produces oxygen that makes us breathe and cleans the air. What we thought as something "sad" or "negative" has actually helped us grow and bring us a better environment.
Just like the rains, failures and rejections as we pursue our cabin crew dream may seem like a negative situation or a misfortune but guess what, they are actually there make you grow as a person by "watering" you. They sip down to your roots which builds your character and attitude by teaching you lessons. These rejections adds nourishment in your quest to be a flight attendant by making you realize what went wrong and what to improve on.
So when you face rejection, do not think of the statement "when it rains, it pours", instead, think of the rain that waters the crops to make it grow. Rejections are the rains that will make you grow in order to be the best fit for the airlines' cabin crew requirements.
Thinks may not happen now, but soon, for as long as you accept the "nourishment" the "rain" bring us. It brings us closer to your dream, that goal to one day be in the sky wearing your uniform.
