22 People Who Overcame Laziness and Made Something Special With Their Own Hands

According to psychologists, people have a fear of being unsuccessful in what they do and it makes them feel lazy. However, once they overcome this, they can actually build the most amazing things, like their own arcade cabinet, a fancy birdhouse, or even a big Lego coffee table all by hand.
