Everyone loves an inspiring story about personal transformation that’s perhaps best epitomized in the famous fairytale ‘The Ugly Duckling’. We all know how the story goes: an abandoned and spurned duckling turns into a beautiful swan and becomes envied and admired by all the other ducklings in the pond.
It’s much more than a fairytale because, like most other fairytales, it teaches us important lessons about life. No matter how unlikely it may seem, with enough effort and dedication, we can overcome discover our long-dormant inner beauty and let everyone see the proud swan that was hiding inside.
Take a look at these inspiring examples of ugly ducklings who turned into good looking and successful adults.
1. Amazing transformation
This is a striking example of how an ugly duckling can transform into a beautiful and attractive woman, despite experiencing some rough times during early adulthood. The girl from this picture wrote: “I must say, being an ugly duckling (both self-described and by the perception of others) made me a much better person than I might have been had I always been “pretty.”
2. “Taking The Cake On This One”
Many of us have been a little chubby as kids and there’s nothing wrong with it. For this guy, it was only a motivation to work on himself and become an super attractive young man.
3. “So Much Can Change In Few Years”
Good looks often go hand-in-hand with self-confidence and as we can see, it looks like the situation was improving slowly in this guy’s case. The end result is pretty impressive. We’re pretty sure he could be a movie star if he wants to try his hand at acting.
