To become a flight attendant is not just a job. It is a career. It is a passion. Most especially, it is a title for those who deserve to carry it. More than the travel benefits and the rewards is a great fulfillment of being there for your passengers, particularly their safety. As some say, becoming a flight attendant is almost every girl's dream, and now, a lot of men have dreams of becoming a flight steward one day.
Every flight attendant now living their beautiful career of flying once said "soon I will be a cabin crew" and "my time will come." To be honest, that time will depend on you. Hence, do not say "if my time will come", instead, say "my time will come." Do not also say "I will hopefully be a cabin crew", instead, say "I will be a cabin crew."
Words like "hopefully" and "if" may make you end up half-hearted with this direction of your life. If failures and road blocks come ahead, you may end up by giving-in.
I do understand also that you may think "I want to put the term 'hopefully' because I do not want to rely on it too much". Guess what, let me tell you that since you want to become a cabin crew, push for it already with all your heart as though there is no choice but that.
So what do you do when you face rejections and failures? What will you do if airline recruiters tell you that "you are not fit to be a cabin crew?" It is okay to feel bad. We are only but human beings with emotions right? Do not allow this though to shatter your dream. Just take a step back and move two paces forward meaning, use every rejection as an opportunity to get better until you achieve your cabin crew dream.
There is not a single successful person in this world who faced road blocks before earning his or her stripes.
If you desire to be a cabin crew, if you dream of becoming a cabin crew, trust me when I say that your time will come! It will! I just don't know when, but that time will really depend on you. If you make consistent improvements like developing yourself in order to meet the expectations, qualifications, and requirements needed by the airline, one day, your time will indeed come.
When your time comes, you will see that the view up there is very beautiful. You will be forever thankful to God for helping you get to there you are. You will now prove to yourself that nothing is impossible in this world.
