Adversity, and perseverance and all these things can shape you. They can give you a value and a self-esteem that is priceless.
The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
I had a ninth grade teacher who told me I was much smarter and much better than I was allowing myself to be.

When youre expected to win and you have the press saying that you are going to win the Olympic gold medal, and youre the only sure thing in the Olympics, it can undermine your confidence.
Most other competitions are individual achievements, but the Olympic Games is something that belongs to everybody.
Im very accessible. I dont get into this ego thing.

Male figure skating is different than female figure skating; were not Americas sweetheart.
When you turn professional, you become an entertainer, and like every other entertainer, you dont want to get a bad review.
So as an amateur Olympic competitor I loved criticism, because it made me better. But now as a professional I dont really know how to channel it or where to take it, so I dont take it quite as well.
