This remarkable story WILL change your life: Guaranteed!

The Colonel Sanders story:

At age 5 his Father died, and at age 16 he quit school.

At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.

At age 18 he got married.

He joined the army and washed out, even there.

At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby.

So, he became a cook in a small café and convinced his wife to return home. That sounds pretty sad to me.

Sounds like he might’ve wasted a little bit of time right?

Well, at age 65 he retired from a long career of being a simple cook.

After he received his first social security check of just over a hundred bucks, he felt like a complete failure and decided to commit suicide. There was just no way he could live and survive off that meager amount of cash, and he didn’t want to burden his family any further with his failures.

Mr. Sanders sat under the shade of a nice tree, writing his will, and apologizing to them all for his shortcomings.

But after some time, instead he started writing down what he would have accomplished with his life if he could do it all over again. He thought about how great of a cook he was. He knew he could cook chicken better than anyone he knew.

Imagine that inner dialogue! To go from suicide to… “Dammit I can cook this chicken and I’m going to cook it like my life depends on it!”

The colonel must’ve really hyped himself up under that tree, because he stood up and attacked life with an ambition his family had never seen!

His back was against the wall, he was going to kill himself anyways, so what did he have to lose now?

So he borrowed $87, fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell.

He took his chicken recipe to over 1000 locations in an attempt to sell it to the public. He heard no after no, but eventually found a willing investor. He had no other option, he had nothing to lose. He made up his mind and attacked his goal.

At age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.

A BILLIONARE.

Not million. Billion. Big difference there.

So what can you take away from this?

Don’t even bother comparing yourself to others. We are all on our own journeys. We all have unique strengths and abilities, and maybe you need a little bit more time than some of your peers. That’s fine! Don’t beat yourself up for your “shortcomings” so far, and look towards the future.

I’ve lost everything at once, and gotten it all back. On more than one occasion. I have friends my age (21) who are millionaires, and others who are drug addicts.

So decide for yourself to cook that chicken better than anyone else! You can do it man we’re both still so young!

Stay positive, set your goals, focus on your unique strengths, and please don’t beat yourself up if your journey is taking a little longer than you’d like.

Oh God! This is just the way up, yes, in any field. Just dust yourself up, get yourself up and do it.

Ehn, your "it" might be different from frying chicken but it's never too late to do it.

You have to do it persistently and consistently though. See, the old man had to take his chicken to a thousand locations. Rejections shouldn't stop you, keep moving.
