i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

Airline crew members must have it. Passengers with health issues or those who are pregnant at a certain trimester have to have it too. What exactly am I talking about? Believe it or not, in order for some people to go places; they must prove that they’re actually fit to fly.

This got me thinking about the mentality needed to go places in life. It’s pretty mind boggling for me to see so many people taking on relationships, careers, big undertakings in life, but they’ve yet to adopt the right kind of mindset needed to take flight. Instability, mood swings, constant emotional and mental fluctuations; all of these things make it extremely difficult for people to take off in life.

If you’re finding yourself always rising and falling in your relationships and interactions with people, nine times out of ten; it’s you. At some point on your journey you’ve got to address the approach you take when it comes to everything. No longer can you expect to get somewhere if you’re not fit to fly. In the case of those who aren’t fit to fly, the doctor tells them no. You’re not going anywhere. The doctor will point blank say “You can’t go.” If you’re sabotaging your own success and take off, you really don’t even need a doctor to tell you whether you can take off or not. Truth is, all you need to do is look around at your life. If you’re willing to come clean you will see how you’re doing on this journey. Are your relationships always in critical condition? Is what’s going on in your mind and heart in conflict with your image and vision for your life? Are there people in your life who tolerate your immaturity but in reality they stay in conflict with you because you’re in your current jacked up state of mind? Do you always find yourself at odds with who you are and who you want to be?

If you answered yes to any of these you may NOT be fit to fly. Those who are fit to fly have a mentality that refuses to major in the minors. They have a big picture type of way of thinking; not allowing pettiness and foolishness to keep them dealing with low level relationships, negativity and drama. If you really want to fly, do you seriously think contentious arguing, debates and disagreements with the people on board with you is the way to get there? The person who’s fit to fly is going somewhere and is willing to be approved by someone who can vouch for them that they are really ready to go.

A person who is never able to be examined and approved for take off is not fit to fly. What about you? If you are going to get to your destination, you must be fit to fly.
