Everyone loves an inspiring story about personal transformation that may be best embodied in the famous fairy tale “The Ugly Duckling”. We all know how the story unfolds: an abandoned and repelled duckling turns into a beautiful swan and becomes envied and admired by all the other ducklings in the pond.
It is much more than a fairy tale because, like most other fairy tales, it teaches us important lessons about life. No matter how unlikely this may seem, with enough effort and dedication, we can overcome discovering our long-dormant inner beauty and let everyone see the proud swan hiding inside.
Take a look at these inspiring examples of naughty ducklings that have turned into beautiful and prosperous adults.

This is a striking example of how an ugly duckling can turn into a beautiful and attractive woman, despite some difficult times in early adulthood.

3. “So much can change in a few years”
Good looks often go hand in hand with self-confidence and as we can see, it seems that the situation was slowly improving in the case of this guy. The end result is pretty impressive. We’re pretty sure he could be a movie star if he wants to try his hand at playing.
4. Before and after
It is hard to believe that these two pictures show the same person. We can see very clerly from this example, how much a person can change over time. In this case, the change was for the better.
