You all have your own cabin crew dreams and you are doing all to attain them. Usually, we end up creating just one goal, and that is to be a cabin crew. On our journey towards attaining that goal, we get lost in the middle when hurdles like rejections come our way. We lose track of our path. We do not know where to begin again. This is why it is important to have short, specific, and attainable small goals toward your ultimate goal of becoming a cabin crew.
It is simply like doing a "connect the dots" activity. When you see that piece of paper with plenty of dots, you don't see any picture. All you see is basically, a sheet of paper with plenty of dots. You get lost, ending up not being able to determine the picture. If you follow though the numbers and directions connecting one dot to another, you will be able to complete the picture.
Same thing as setting small goals towards your ultimate goal of becoming a cabin crew, it is similar to creating a "map". You have a starting point and you have the end goal. Between them, you have to create a direction or way points in order to arrive at your goal.
So start by creating small goals towards your cabin crew dream. Assess yourself and compare them to the airline's requirements and qualifications. Try to check your strength and weaknesses. Read stuff about what it takes to be a cabin crew which we all have here on this website.
Then start plotting down your goals. Give it target dates. Be specific. Example:
After you accomplish one, tick it off your bucket list.
Think of it like praying to God. We pray to have a big house, to go somewhere else, and all. But do we ever pray for God to bless us in our work or careers so that we can build that house? So always have small goals between your big goals for you to be able to set a direction then work things from there.
Again, the journey to be a cabin crew is not easy, but definitely worth it. Not only would it earn you your wings, it would definitely make you a better person too.
Good luck future flight attendant!
