In a world where negativity and envy are part of our lives, you're bound to meet people who will crush your dreams of becoming a flight attendant. They will show you all the negativity they see in this job and in the people who work in this field. The bad news is that you're bound to encounter at least one. The good news is that you don't have to listen to them. Listen to your heart, your calling, and those who will support you on this journey.

In most cases, the people who will discourage you and crush your dream of being a flight attendant are those who have never experienced becoming one or even passed the screening process. So if someone discourages you, try asking them if they've ever experienced being a cabin crew. If he tells you "no, but I have a friend whose mother is a cousin of my wife's uncle, who is the BFF of a cabin crew's aunt's husband", then that certainly won't even be considered "credible".

Don't let airline rejections stop you from fulfilling a childhood dream. Instead, take it as a challenge. Take each failure constructively by learning from your mistake and improving. Listen to those who will tell you what your mistakes are so that you can be better. These are usually the people who want you to achieve your dream of becoming an attendant/flight attendant one day. There really is a huge difference between those people who will tell you your mistakes and those who will discourage you from pursuing your dreams.

The people who will tell you what you've done wrong usually want you to improve your attitude and behavior so that you can become part of the crew one day. On the other hand, the latter will not only tell you that you are not fit to be a flight attendant, but they will speak negatively about the job and career of a flight attendant. Listen to the former and avoid the latter. We don't need too much negativity in our lives. Instead of letting others dictate which path you should take, follow your own path. If you know deep in your heart that you really want to become a flight attendant, go for it. Along the way, you will encounter challenges and pitfalls. The journey, we guarantee, will not be easy.

You may be turned away by the airline, but like any athlete, injuries and falls make us stronger. They make us wiser. Your way is not other people's way, always remember that. It's your life, not theirs. You don't set out to prove them wrong, but to prove yourself right that you were born to be a flight attendant and no matter what, you will follow that path. Once there, don't forget to look back on your journey.

Keep your feet on the ground and share with other aspirants of this job helping them turn their childhood dreams into reality.

If you know deep in your heart that this is what you want to be, focus on it, follow it. Work for it. Pray for it. Don't allow others to destroy you. It's your life, not theirs.


See you on the flight!
