The Story of Colonel Sanders | Inspiring History of KFC

His father died when he was 5 years old of age, he dropped out of school at the age of 16, he had already lost four jobs by the time he was 17, he got married at the age of 18.
He worked as a railroad conductor and failed between ages 18 and 22, he joined the army but he gets washed out of the military, he applied but get rejected by the law school.

He also worked as an insurance salesman and failed again, at the age of 19 he already became a father, his wife left him and took away their baby daughter when he was 20 years old age. He worked as a kitchen porter in a small café, he failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and in the long run he persuaded his wife to return home.

He retired at age 65, On the 1st day of his retirement he received a cheque of $105 from the government, he felt that the government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.
So, he decided to commit suicide, with the thought that life wasn’t worth living anymore with the fact that he has failed so much, he sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life.

Then he realized there was much more that ought to be done, he knew for sure that 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, he bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbours in Kentucky.
Remember at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide, but at the age of 88 years old Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) became a billionaire.

Nature has endowed you with unlimited potentials, work good on self-discovery and I assure you that you will detect that one thing you are actually good at, you’re born to be happy; so I implore you to utilize that happiness advantage to drive yourself to your greatness in life.
