You never knew that you existed.

I can accept failure. Everybody fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. Fear is an illusion

Unlock your Superhero What?

Julia:

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you could overcome your fear of trying something new for the first time? For example, applying for your dream job without constantly doubting yourself and at the end of the day completely dismissing the thought as some wild illusion rather than action. Pause. Or maybe you are one of those already superhuman kind who has ten thousand self-inflicted expectations hovering over your head and living in the moment just isn't an option? Maybe thinking ahead twenty years down the track is OK, but the way that you are going about it sees time and moments fly out the door. 

 This is where Freediving comes in to play; not kidding. 

I gave myself three months to reach three target depths in a sport that I had been competing in for less than a year in a location that I had never been before in a competition that most people gawk at; the 2017 World Freediving Championships. Prior to my Freediving days, I have always acted on feeling and ignored the doubt. Of course, it's hard but it is also possible and I imagine that is why Freediving and I get along so well - I chose to think the right way. You just have to make that choice - how are you going to look at this situation and how will you then approach it. 

And then there is the big question; what am I capable of?

Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it
— C. JoyBell C.

When I am 50m below the surface and freaking out at the bottom plate, have turned and am at that edgy 48m mark of "Oh my god I am going to die" (which still crosses my mind from time to time - I'm only (super) human like you), I repeat my mantra.  It is the same mantra that I repeat when I'm standing in front of a wild 250kg male Lion in Africa or a family of four on Bondi beach who's baby has just thrown up all over my camera... And it's the same mantra that I repeat when I'm just having one of those little (large) life freak outs.   

During our time, I'm going to teach you how to unlock your Superhero. The you that you didn't know existed and it's going to change your life. You might walk away as Cat Woman or a Telly Tubby if that's what you fancy. The ultimate is up to you. So book in, come and have some fun and learn all about your new world of Freediving and of you. Sound cliche? Well, it isn't.
