He decided to commit suicide, it wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.

Post by Ankit Gupta » Thu Jun 23, 2016 12:05 pm

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 sales man 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 realised 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 IMPORTANLY, 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.

nothing inspiring there ...
he was just a nobody who in his first 65 years was not able to achieve a flucking nothing ( a double negation in this case is allowed )
( meditate on the list of his doings / failures )

and after that he was just lucky
so nothing good, inspiring
these examples should be ignored unless You(generic) are looking for an excuse to do nothing for all Your life

I was also always looking at it as inspiration but if it is not an inspiration what is an inspiration?
