Yeah right, easier said than done. Well, I must agree but my question is, will you allow negativity and self-doubt drown your belief that you are capable of becoming a cabin crew? I hope not! After graduating college, I told myself that I will own a business and it has to involve the aviation industry. Different situations and circumstances came by that stirred me further away but I did not let them take control of the wheel.
I got to where I am now, an owner of a multimedia company on Philippine commercial aviation, not by luck, but by sheer hard work and a firm belief in myself that I can do it. Despite the negativity around, I still chose to stick to my plan, to my dream. Yes I would take the advice of some and I did make adjustments in order to get to where I am. One thing I did was to not doubt my capabilities and myself.
As aspirants, you all share in that one dream to be a cabin crew. Let me tell you that the journey to get there is not easy, but very achievable. Yes it is up only for a selected few but no one ever said you are not part of that selected few. In you lies the capability to be part of that selected few of who will become a cabin crew, so never doubt your capabilities, especially if you know deep down inside that becoming a flight attendant is for you. Yes rejections come your way. There are also those people who will tell you "hindi ka bagay dyan, pang mayaman lang yan" and all. Guess what, you know yourself more than others do.
The start of thinking to give-up your cabin crew dream is self doubt. It all starts from there, and this is why right now, I am telling you not to doubt yourself and your capabilities. All you have to do is to pop out your comfort zone and learn something new. It is hard, but it's either you pop out of it or stay contained in your tank forever. A shark in a fish tank will only grow as big as the tank. Put it out in the open ocean and it will grow its full size.
Giving-up will never solve your cabin crew dream, and this will all start from doubting your capabilities. Believe in yourself. God gave you a powerful brain, two hands, two legs, and a heart, so make use of your God-given capabilities.
Every flight attendant out there were once in your shoes. They were dreamers and aspirants. Many went through struggles to get to where they are, but they never doubted themselves.
If they can do it, so can you! Trust yourself! Trust your capabilities!
Good luck future cabin crew!
