When you climb a mountain, there is one important instruction you have to follow, and that is to never look back, instead, you always have to look forward and up the direction you are going. Looking back down may cause you to lose your focus. It may scare you that you may lose your balance. You also have to always be aware of what is infront of you. You have to always keep your eyes on your trail and on the peak.
This goes the same when you start your cabin crew journey. I want you to see it like a mountain, except, this mountain will give you a view at above 40,000ft. As you make the very first step up, keep your eyes on the trail and at the peak.
Your trail is basically your pathway, from recruitment to training. There may be parts of the trail where you will need to make adjustments like a little deviation to avoid loose soil which may be dangerous, low trees, and so on but basically, your path is the safest guide up. Definitely as you go up, things will get harder just like cabin crew training but still keep your eyes on the trail and the peak. When hurdles come your way, do not look back because it may scare you off your goals and directions.
When I say "look back", do not look back at your hardships, the negativity others told you, your failures, and bad memories. You had left them behind already and you are on your way up. Just keep your eyes up, conquering every stage of the recruitment process. Learning to deal with hurdles and making adjustments are very important.
Trust me. Your journey up the peak of becoming a cabin crew may not be as fast as the others but always remember that your goal is not to get there first than other people. Your goal is to simply get there. So take things one step at a time, take baby steps forward. For as long you keep your eyes on the path ahead of you, you listen to your guides who have walked the path before, and you keep your head facing up, you will become a cabin crew in time.
Keep your head facing towards the heavens and watch how God will guide you through.
Good luck future cabin crew!
