Hadfield dedicated himself to becoming an astronaut, but he insists that even if he had never become an astronaut or never had the chance to fly into space, he would have been happy. All it does is make you more likely to be able to succeed.
Ground control to commander: On that last five-month mission, Hadfield went viral online with tweets, photos of Earth and videos of himself explaining everyday space oddities and singing and playing music on his guitar.

Sandra Bullock looked really good in those! And they'll see the curve of the Earth and the horizon, because they'll be above the air. What is the worst that can happen?
That's how I deal with the madness, I think. And so I got to see firsthand not only the interest in spaceflight, but the impact it can have — the opening of eyes and expanding of horizons when you take an idea and put it in front of people and express it in a way they've never seen before.

Instead, he decided to relish in his pilot training and self-development as a means to living a fulfilling life.
Hadfield also writes about the experience any astronaut undergoes while in space; the view of earth from space, walking in the vacuum, floating inside the vessel are amazing experiences which are worth the effort that is put into preparing for all of this.
The way he goes about planning for success is to train as if it's going to happen. I think the Captain Hindsight story above is a great way to stress the importance of being proactive. Most of the Apollo-era astronauts were fighter pilots and test pilots; he too decided to become one.
I'm a lucky guy. The main question an astronaut asks himself during the insanely dangerous 10 minutes after takeoff is: He came to terms that his dream of going into space would probably never come true.Chris Hadfield Together, Space, School, Husband, Lost To be one of the world's top space robotic arm operators is a necessary skill for an astronaut, but it doesn't have much carry-over.
