Your Ocean Beliefs


What beliefs do you hold?

Check your gut-level beliefs, not your intellectual beliefs
  • In the ocean, I need different skills than I need in a pool.
  • In the ocean, I need to be constantly vigilant about the fish.
  • In salt water, I’ll float higher than in fresh water: less work.
  • Waves may prevent me from going where I want to go.
  • Currents may prevent me from going where I want to go.
  • If I’m in a current, I’m not sure how to get back to shore.
  • I may not be able to swim as far as the shore.
  • If I can’t see through the water, I’m unsafe.
  • I feel tiny in the ocean.
  • Water in the ocean works the same way as water in the pool. It pushes me up.
  • I’ll let myself use floating assists (lifejacket, noodle, inner tube) to learn how they work.
  • One of my dreams is to feel safe jumping off a boat into the "blue."
  • Knowing how to float and remain in control are the most important skills I need in the ocean
  • I may have to push myself to get what I came for.
  • I know if I let myself be where I am, I’ll make the most progress.
