Yes, Things Can Go Wrong for World Famous Successful People Too

Updated on April 6, 2011

Be Inspired Because Successful People are Like Us Too

Here's a list of videos that I watch from time to time to draw inspiration.

What they tell us is that even successful people make mistakes too. Maybe the lesson to be learnt here is that taking action and making mistakes is just part of the journey to your own success.

So next time you make a mistake, you know it is because you are taking action and striding towards your success.

Now go ahead and enjoy the videos. I know I will.

You might have thought that only humans are fallible. Well guess what? Take a look at the video clip of Honda's Humanoid Android (which by the way cost "gazillion" dollars) falling down the stairs. The next time we make a mistake, maybe we shouldn't be so hard on ourselves.

Super Models can Fall Down Too (but they do it with Style)
