Colonel Harland David Sanders, the founder of one of the best-selling and most successful fast food restaurants KFC was born in the year 1890. When he was 6 years old his father passed away, and at such a small age he had to look out for his family. He dropped out of school when he was in the seventh grade, and after that the series of failures started for him. After working as, a farmhand, he got into the United States army by lying about his age at an age of 16. He learned cooking in this phase of his life. “I think a dream is just a suggestion to start something out, do something” said the founder.
Then after getting out of there he worked as a labour at the railways while pursuing law, one day he got into a fight with a colleague and was fired from the job. He had pursued law, but he failed in the profession in the same manner because of a fight. Then a Ferry Boat Companyfollowed by a company manufacturing lamps, all of which failed. When he was 40, he started cooking and selling chicken dishes at a service station which ended in a quarrel, next his bought motelwas burnt down and again when he tried his luck opening another motel, it was shut down because of World War II. He had said “One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping stone to something better.”
After so much disappointment, people do give up but he didn’t. He again dealt failure with getting rejected 1,009 times trying to get franchise for his restaurant. Then he changed the name from Sander’s Secret Recipe to Kentucky Fried Chicken. And after it we know what KFC turned into, though he sold the company when he was 73 but he had already made it the company that it is today. He is really a big inspiration for the people who are facing failure in their lives.
