I will be straightforward this time here. Some may be asking "when do we quit? I had been applying for 20 years already and I never can get accepted. Should I stop already?" Wait wait, my question is, regardless of how many times you tried to apply, have you ever asked yourself why you simply cannot get in? Have you tried to improve yourself and to work hard to make the airline standards?
I have always reiterated that becoming a cabin crew is not just about trying over and over again. It is about the quality of your application and how you have improved everytime you would apply again. It makes totally no sense applying and applying over and over again without making improvements on yourself. We are just simply wasting our time.
"I only stand 5'1", but I have a dream to be a flight attendant. I'm having a hard time because the minimum height is 5'3". Should I stop pursuing it?" We know a flight attendant who stands 5'0". All she did was to look for an airline that accepts applicants with such height, and she made it in.
So to the topic as when to quit, here's what I have to say when to quit pursuing your dream to be a flight attendant:
Yes this is real talk. Keep going on for as long as you make forward progress. Sometimes, roadblocks or failures are not trenches for you to fall into, but they are there to simply detour you through a better path towards your dream to fly.
Good luck future flight attendant!
