Looking at other people’s success can certainly be a great motivator. We see that it’s actually possible to go from the bottom to the top. Those people are just like us, with their fears and worries, yet they still managed to get it together and keep going.

Bright Side is sharing 15 stories that will make you get off the couch and into greatness.
