It is always important for every individual to know that life is a journey and therefore no matter the situation, there is always some sought of hope.
At the age of 5 his father died, going through school was hell for him so at the age of 16 he quit schooling.
He went in search of job to sustain himself but at the age of 17 he had already lost 4 jobs. He got married at the age of 18 and decided to raise a family.
Between the ages 18 and 22 he worked as a driver to support himself and his little family but he failed too.
He joined the army but he was rejected, he tried to enroll in one the judicial schools but he was rejected as well.
He got a job as an insurance salesman, he was sacked a few months into his new job bringing him another failure in his basket.
At this point because he couldn’t provide for his family, at the age of 25 his wife left him and took his only daughter away.
He then decided to start up something by himself by turning his dishes into a small coffee shop, that too didn’t work for him as he had wished.
He again failed in all efforts to get back his daughter and at 65 he retired.
On the first day of his retirement the government gave him $105.
At this point the thought of killing himself kept ringing in his head because of his numerous failures in life and the fact that he is too old and weak to take up an active job again.
He sat under a tree one day to reflect and write about his testament of failures but in the middle of writing this, he somehow realized that there is one thing he hadn’t done yet and that was “cooking”.
So he quickly got up and with the money the government gave him, he bought himself a fryer and he started making fried chickens using a recipe his grandmother taught him.
He sold this fried chickens from door to door in his village and at least as he didn’t fail doing this, at the age of 88 colonel sanders the founder of KFC was a billionaire.
