The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. ~Oprah Winfrey

Maybe you’ve found FreshYacht because you’re looking for a life of adventure.

You might think you've got skills that'll help you work on yachts.

Or maybe you love to travel and want to see more places around the world and experience different cultures.

Whatever your reason, you’re here because you have a dream.

Let’s be honest, sometimes dreams can be scary.

Big goals can be intimidating and it can be difficult to see the finish line when you’re just starting.

That’s why it’s so important to have a plan and a community to support you along the way.

Big dreams rarely come true overnight. In fact, most successful people will likely admit that they took months or even years to achieve their vision.

So we want to encourage you and remind you that you don’t have to do everything all at once.

Today, we’re sharing a few thoughts on how you can approach a big yachting career goal.

We'll show you how to focus so you’re making forward progress without wandering off course.

Why do you have this goal or dream?

If you can understand what your motivation is, you’ll be able to understand why this goal is a good fit for your life.

  • Take the time to really think about what you want and why working on a yacht is the right way to get there
  • Understand the foundation of your goal

If you understand what’s driving you, you’ll be more likely to stay energized while you work toward achieving your goal.

What are the key things you need to achieve to meet your goal?

For example, do you need to;

  • save money for training
  • finish your current studies
  • make arrangements for pets when you leave
  • sell some belongings or your car

Take time to write down the steps along the way and the things you need to resolve before you launch into your new life.

Seeing everything on paper will help you plan time or resources as you check each item off your to-do list.

Even with the best planning, sometimes life happens, and you may find obstacles that arise as you pursue your goals. Maybe your car needs emergency repairs, and you have to spend the money you’ve saved for training.

Perhaps you have a family member take ill and your support is needed as a caregiver.

It’s important to recognize that you can overcome any obstacle if you're dedicated to your goal and take the long view towards achievement.

When you hit stormy weather, turn back to your map, and revisit your motivations.

Reach out to your FreshYacht community, where you’ll find encouragement and tools to help guide you.

As important as understanding your goals and visualizing how you’ll achieve them, is the group of people you invite along on your journey.

While working on superyachts makes this a literal fact, it’s also true when you consider who supports you now in your life.

Think about your friends, family members, and colleagues. 

  • Who will encourage you as you pursue your dream? 
  • Who may drag you down, or tell you that your goal is too big?

Be thoughtful and share your dreams with the people who'll support you.

When you're feeling discouraged these are the people who will point you back to your original vision. They’ll also help keep you accountable.

These are the friends who will know you’re saving money for training so they’ll suggest a dinner at home rather than a night on the town.

As you make progress toward your goal, be sure you recognize and celebrate your progress along the way.

Have you;

  • saved enough money to pay for your training?
  • created a powerful CV outlining all of your skills?
  • taken care of family obligations so that you’re ready to go?

Each achievement, whether big or small, is worthy of notice. 

After all, even a marathon is just an accumulation of single steps.

And with one foot in front of the other, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.
