I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician, a writer, an athlete or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you'll win - if you don't, you won't.
If I wasn't dyslexic, I probably wouldn't have won the Games. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily... and I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.
First of all, I try to be a positive role model.
The biggest problem with dyslexic kids is not the perceptual problem, it is their perception of themselves. That was my biggest problem.
I am from the Kardashian group. We can take anything.
I always thought everybody else was better than me.
If I had not been dyslexic, I wouldn't have needed sports. I would have been like every other kid. Instead, I found my one thing, and I was never going to let go of it. That little dyslexic kid is always in the back of your head.
I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.
I thought everybody else was doing much better than I was.
If you're asking your kids to exercise, then you better do it, too. Practice what you preach.
It's about working when nobody's watching.
Start early and begin raising the bar throughout the day.
I spent twelve years training for a career that was over in a week. Joe Namath spent one week training for a career that lasted twelve years.
I still have nightmares about taking tests.
I was a dyslexic kid.
