We never did a lot of weights, but a lot of repetitions. The most I would use doing squats was 300 pounds.
There were no competitions on television. The first skating competition I ever remember seeing on television was the 1968 Olympics when Peggy Fleming won.
But better die than live mechanically a life that is a repetition of repetitions.
My mom is my role model. Charlie and I have two great sets of parents, but our moms are often the ones that go with us to competitions. My mom was with me in Sochi. I am so lucky to be a part of the Thank You Mom program partnered with Puffs and P&G.
Competitions are for horses, not artists.
Like it or not, life is a series of competitions. You may be competing for a grade, a spot on a team, a job, or the largest account in town. The higher your self-esteem is, the better you get along with yourself, with others, and the more you'll accomplish.
Competitions make me nervous. When I go out on the ice, I just think about my skating and not, 'I have to do this to win.' I forget it is a competition.
I wish I could compete again, but my good feeling is, these competitions are better as exhibitions.
Professional competitions are overrated.
I've always had a loud mouth, and for that I've gotten a lot of attention. I did falter in some big competitions in my career, but being counted out and not being seen as a threat is something I'm used to.
I don't rank competitions - every single one is the Olympics to me.
Have you noticed the people most likely to be up in arms about governments apparently spying on us tend to be the most non-private people you know? The people launching petitions and wailing about Big Brother and data collection are most likely to be the most constant self-presenters.
I don't believe in competitions between artists. This is insane. Who has the authority to say someone is better?
Normally, however, I try to avoid repetitions of any shot.
