At age five, his Father died
At age 16, he quit school
At age 17 he had already lost four jobs
Between 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.
He joined the army and was washed out of there.
He applied for law school but was rejected.
He became an insurance sales man and failed again.
At age 19 he became a father
At age 20, his wife left him taking their children with her,
because he couldn’t hold a job.
He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.
He eventually convinced his wife to return home.
At age 65 he retired.
On the 1st day of retirement he received a cheque from the Government for $105.
He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.
He decided to commit suicide, it wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.
He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realized there was much more that he hadn’t done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew and that was
how to COOK.
So he borrowed $87 against his cheque and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbors in Kentucky.
Remember at age 65, he was ready to commit suicide but at age 88 Colonel Sanders founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken Empire was a billionaire.
Colonel Sanders (1890-1980) created the Kentucky Fried Chicken fast food chain at the age of 66. Pride in his product, high standards, and brilliant marketing help to establish him as an innovator in the fast food industry.
It is Never too Late to start all over. Never give up no matter how hard it gets.
You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.
Age 65 was his “morning”
Today can be yours.
