The story nobody mentions…
Are you ready to become a dolphin Trainer?
There are some things you should know before…
You must know all the stages they go through before they reach the end goal!
Most of beginners start by showing off with the animals, but that is just a honey moon process, a period when you just want to play with them and do whatever you like, of course! according to the rules, you feel like having all the fun possible. After six months, it all starts to fade away, at the end of that period new trainers or assistant trainers start to realize that it takes a lot of work to keep it up, they also start understanding that is very strenuous and highly demanding, energy wise.
When you have been a year in the job and all your enthusiasm had levelled off and you get tired of been smelly, not having pretty nails in the case of the girls, not having pretty hair, not been able to wear high heels, because you have spent ten hours treading in deep water. Then you stop…and think, asking yourself…hmmm…is this really for me?
The whole process is normal and very common, around 30% of trainers make it and stick with it, those who do make it, fall in love with the animals and don’t care about the rest, it is kind of like a drug, the more they do it, the more you want to do it, the beautiful thing is that its becomes a long live skills and career, it ends up not being a job anymore, it turns into your passion forever.
There is nothing or anybody who can turn you away from it!
Female trainers take it very seriously, their maternal instinct makes them protect the animals as if they were their babies, providing the best care for them. Management knows that and that is why you see must of animal carer staff are Females.
When you are working as a dolphin trainer after fifteen or twenty years, you kind of stop and think again, did I have enough?
Some of the trainers wants to go on doing it, but on another level and not far away from the animals.
Well, guess what!… at this stage, you would only find that 15% of them reach the end goal.
I have the feeling and I think I know what you might be thinking!
Well… if only 15% reach the end goal, why would I even bother to try?
How do you know you are not in the 15%?
I say, why wouldn’t you try?
Happiness is who you become after trying those little things that call your attention and things that you like and enjoy doing the most, that is called passion, that is your blue print… your purpose in live.
What if you really like it?
Believe me, I am in the 15% and it’s very much worth a try, it’s one of the most rewarding, beautiful and important decisions I have ever made in my live.
No regrets whatsoever!
Hey, listen… if you really like it, go for it!
At the end of the day, human spirit is the hardest thing to kill on earth, not even you could kill it.
It will bite you back one day…
Wish you good luck!
