When there is ‘no wind in our sails’ we talk to an experienced adult that gives us positive feedback (such as Elise, Scott, Wendy, or Maia). These people help us find common ground, tell us how it is, and make us feel better about the situation. In order to get ‘wind in your sails’ you need to work together with others.
Therefore, in other places besides the boat, it is necessary to come to a common ground with people you work with, interact with, and/or family. For example, this boat trip we have learned that when our parents or guardians asks us to do something, there are worse things that we can be doing besides washing the dishes. When there is ‘no wind in your sails’, you must learn to compromise.
