learn from those who have already achieved it
If being Dyslexic meant you wouldn't be able to be successful, people like Will Smith, Richard Branson, Keira Knightley and many others would have had no chance.
In this post you will see my chosen Top 5 Dyslexics . . .
1. Sir Richard Branson
Richard Branson, known for his Virgin Group empire. Many people are aware of Richard’s dyslexia which is why he’s a true inspiration for us dyslexics.
Richard Branson struggled at school and didn’t do very well, after leaving school he decided to start his own magazine called Student. The magazine did surprisingly well and made money by selling Ads. Richards’s principle said "Congratulations, Branson. I predict that you will either go to prison or become a millionaire." .. Richards’s principle was wrong, He became a Billionaire.
Richard Branson owns his own island!! Called the Necker Island which he rents out to other celebrity’s which is pretty awesome.

2. Steve Jobs
I have ranked Steve Jobs number 2 …his innovation and ability to stand out is unbelievable. Steve jobs struggled with dyslexia in school and even dropped out. Jobs dropped out of college so he didn’t have to attend all the classes which weren’t going to help him in the future.
Check out his amazing speech below.
3. Bill Gates
The Richest man in world is Dyslexic, It doesn't get more inspirational than that. Bill Gates is a college dropout (A Harvard dropout, Ranked Number one btw)
"As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others." - Bill Gates - Richest man in the world
4. Will Smith
Will Smith has starred in some of the greatest movies, such as The Pursuit of Happiness, Men in Black, Independence Day and many more. Will Smith struggled with reading at school and felt like he wasn’t good enough. He made a promise to himself he would never feel like that again. Being Dyslexic changed his mind set towards life.
“I have a sicken work ethic, while the other guy is sleep I’m working”
5. Keira Knightley
It’s hard to imagine a successful actress or actor would be dyslexic. Reading and remembering lines sounds like a nightmare to me. This is why Keira Knightley is my top 5, she refused to let her dyslexia stop her from achieving her dream of becoming an actress.
