Sir Peter Leitch - The 'Mad Butcher
Peter Leitch didn't realise he was dyslexic until he was in his early 20's. "School wasn't pleasant. I could read, but I didn't learn –I couldn't gain anything out of what I was reading."
When you have dyslexia, it's always a lot harder. But I've never let that stop me.
I'm not academically smart, but I'm street smart. If I hadn't had dyslexia, I wouldn't
be where I am today.
Never give up – work twice as hard, and you'll get to the top of the
mountain if you want to. Don't be afraid to seek help. Help is out there.
There is no shame putting your hand up and asking for help – I have done it
many times in my life. If you don't put your hand up and ask for help, you only
make life harder for yourself and your loved ones.
