Top Life Lessons From Colonel Sanders [Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire]

I found this beautiful story shared sometimes ago on Facebook. It is one that should encourage anyone who sincerely needs to succeed in life inspite of facing failure.

At age 5 his Father died.
At age 16 he quit school.
At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.
At age 18 he got married.
Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.
He joined the army and washed out there.
He applied for law school he was rejected.
He became an insurance salesman and failed again.

At age 19 he became a father.
At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.
He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.
He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he 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 neighbours in Kentucky.

Remember at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.
But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.

Moral of the story: Attitude. It's never too late to start all over.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT'S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS. You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.

My take, though the moral of the lesson centre’s around attitude but we need to do more than just having an attitude. Action is needed and staying focused inspite of facing challenges should be our watchword. When you focus, you can win any race inspite of what you might encounter.

Some people give up the moment they encounter failure but they fail to realize that real life experience comes through moment of failure. If you don’t encounter failure, then, how would you learn to overcome failure.

Colonel Sanders story is a lesson in progression. Never give up even when you encounter challenges of life.
