Never give up and always keep fighting, because though times may be tough, the sacrifices do pay off, so just keep pushing towards your dream and just love it at the same time and enjoy it.
Hard days are the best because that’s when champions are made.
My message is to never quit, never give up. When you have a little trouble here and there, just keep fighting. In the end, it will pay off.
Even if you have the talent, you still have to push yourself. I don’t think dreams magically appear, that’s why they’re called dreams. But if you do want to make that dream a reality, then you have to push yourself. It takes a lot of hard work, and if you don’t have the focus, then it’s going to be all the harder. If you have a big dream, it takes all of the above to achieve it: passion, the focus and the effort.
The most important thing is to believe in yourself and know that you can do it.
Gold medals are made out of sweat, blood and tears and effort in the gym every day.
Never quit. Never give up.
You know, God has a plan for me, and I’m going to follow in his footsteps and just rejoice and be happy.
No one is going to feel sorry for you, so you have to go out there and be fierce.
Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself. Keep fighting for your dreams!
If you push through the hard days you can get through anything.
For me going down in history being the first black American to win the gold, I think more colored people are going to start coming to the gymnastics world and say ‘okay, anything is possible. If Gabby did it, then I can do it too.’
Always be courageous and strong, and don’t fear.
I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair? I’m like ‘I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about my hair. Nothing is going to change. I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it.
You just have to be yourself and go full with confidence and be courageous!
Sacrifices are not in vain. At the end, everything will pay off.
If we set our minds, we can achieve anything.
Always be courageous and strong, & don’t fear. You’ve got to be confident when you’re competing. You’ve got to be a beast.
I had to face a lot coming through this journey, a lot of sacrifices, difficulties, challenges, and injuries.
Believe, don’t fear, believe.
I’ve learned how to stay humble. I don’t want to get in over my head because when you do that it takes you off your game.
To win Olympic gold it takes a lot of HARDWORK, a lot of PASSION, a lot of SACRIFICES.
The one snack I really love is YoCrunch yogurt. It’s like an apple pie in a cup! You have your apples on the bottom, your yogurt in the middle, and piecrust crumbs on top.
It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me.
The hard work definitely paid off and hard work always does.
