I became a pilot because I wanted to challenge myself on a whole different level. People are amazed when they learn that I fly airplanes. They think I am brave and courageous, which I can understand a bit. If you have never been in a private plane I can see how people can think flying an airplane could be scary. What I realized is how much safer you feel when you are actually in control of the airplane.
Becoming A Private Pilot
This experience of becoming a private pilot has changed me in so many ways. I realize when you put your mind to something you can accomplish anything you want. No one can stop you because you are in charge of your own thoughts, actions, and destiny. Becoming a pilot made me realize there is so much more out there to accomplish and we now have the ability to explore the world. I do see getting your private pilots license as a huge accomplishment. Not just for the flying aspect but, for reaching higher and thinking bigger.
Flying Give Me Inner Strength
Flying gives me a sense of inner strength that I never knew I had. It made me look at my life in a much different way. I use to look at life in short windows and smaller goals. Now I see how big this world can be and what impact you can make.
Put Yourself Out There
It’s time to put yourself out there. It doesn’t matter your age or the circumstances you are in, just take action. You don’t have to take major leaps, just do something small every single day. Write in a journal and document your progress. I challenge you to do this over the course of a month. Write down all your wins and all the steps you have taken to attain your goals. You will notice that if you don’t have a particularly productive day, you will be more motivated to get something accomplished the next day. When you look back on your month, you will be amazed at how much you actually accomplished.
Flying Takes Courage
I do believe it takes courage to fly planes. I think that is why there is such a strong network of people who are pilots. They understand the devotion it takes to get a license and all the additional training that goes into after this step. It takes commitment and mindfulness to be a good pilot. Flying challenges you to be a better person.
Your Passion Will Drive You!
Keep The Fire Alive
Everyone needs to find that thing that will keep the fire alive inside of them and striving to keep learning and growing. As I stated earlier, it does not matter what phase of life you are in, you can always learn and grow no matter what age you are. Be open to your next adventure and expand your mind for new beginnings!
