In the personal statement "Travel tourism" the author writes about pros and cons of the cabin crew member position and what benefit it gives. For every person, happiness is the ultimate goal, and there are several sources and means to attain it. In this connection, I consider progress to be very important in all fields of life: personally, professionally and as a member of society. Personal progress comes from spiritual growth, healthy living, fulfilling one’s role as a member of one’s family, as well as improving one’s financial strength. Professional progress would be from perseverance in the acquiring of knowledge, continued learning of new skill sets, and implementing relevant knowledge in carrying out one’s duties optimally as a member of the cabin crew. Supporting the progress of society would involve participating in community activities that promote the well-being of its members individually and as a whole group. All the avenues of progress lead to a sense of accomplishment and happiness, but it should not be achieved at the expense of others.
I believe that irrespective of circumstances it is crucial to stay positive, since one’s thought-life has a powerful effect on one’s life. Having an enthusiastic, warm and devoted approach to people, shows clear evidence of one’s consideration towards them. Thus, the ancient Iranian prophet and philosopher Zoraster’s words “Doing good to others is not a duty. It is a joy, for it increases your own health and happiness” (Zubko 2000: 200)
