As an upcoming student, I’m very curious to hear about the opinions and perspectives on aptitude.
I’ve weaved through the forum and I’m so grateful for the abundance of dialogue between students and mentors - its really a great resource.
Throughout the topics, I’ve seen it said numerous of times, study/work hard and you will be successful.
As we all know, this program is accelerated and its not for everybody.
Personally, I’m drawn to the program because of just that.
I’m passionate, driven, self-starting, resourceful and all around hardworking.
Going into training, I’m prepared to be all of those aforementioned (…oh and I know my fair share of humility is yet to come )
With all this said, I do have a hint of insecurity echoing: What if I simply don’t have the aptitude for this?
Mentors (and students alike): Thinking back on your early days of training, have you ever doubted your abilities? What did that sound like to you? Did you ever have moments were you thought you just weren’t cut out for this?
To make it to the airlines and be successful in the program, Is it truly as simple as putting in the hard work and dedication?
I’ve always had a “learn from others” mentality and I’m just trying to hear out some experiences from others.
Until then, gonna keep climbing and maintaining
