It’s easy to steer your boat on calm waters,

Drink fancy drinks and follow others.

Don’t worry what people may think

And turn your boat against the wind.

The effort will cost you so much more,

Doubts and troubles will hunt you off shore.

You will be forced to fight oceans and seas

If you decide to go against the wind.

The failure is bitter, the crowd knows it well;

The crowd just follows, it never sails.

But you were born to stand up and live free!

So steer your boat against the wind.

Don’t be afraid of high waves and storms,

They go as fast as they usually come.

Free your mind, have faith in your skills.

Don’t look back, go against the wind.
