Not necessarily. Many famous and successful divers took diving up later in life. Children do tend to take to diving more naturally than adults though; for children breathing underwater because a grown up tells them to comes naturally. Some adults really struggle to get comfortable doing it however.

If you are young and interested in diving, you should dive because you want to; not because you want to be a great diver. It is not a competitive sport. But it is a lot of fun.

File Your Taxes Early?

If you want to receive a refund as soon as possible, then you should be sure to file as early as possible. When the IRS receives thousands of tax applications, there is a waiting period for people who want to receive their refund. If you file before the big rush, the IRS will have more time to send you a refund as soon as possible. Filing as early as possible in January will allow you to get a refund check in the mail within a week or so. If you wait until April, it may be months before you see a refund check.
