  • How KFC's Colonel Sanders Failed 1009 Times and Became Successful In His 60s - Motivational Video

    The Story Will Inspire you to never give up.

    When Colonel Sanders was only 6 years old, his father passed away. Because his mother had to work very hard to provide for the family she was gone all day, and the young boy was left home to take care of his siblings. So at the age 6 he started cooking and taking care of the family. And by the age of 7 he was a already a skilled cook.

    And Sanders continued working and fighting for a his dream almost his entire life.

    Colonel Sanders spent the first half of his life working many odd jobs: He was selling insurance, he was selling tires, he was a farmer, steamboat pilot, secretary, lawyer, he was operating a ferry boat and many other. He was know for not being able to keep a job for a longer period of time. So he was fired very often.
    It wasn't until age of 40 that Colonel Sanders began selling his chicken dishes inside a gas station. And his business became more and more popular. In the next decade he developed his "secret recipe" for frying chicken. But at the age of 65, his restaurant went broke! And for the first time in his life, he had to sign for social security.

    So he was 65, retired and broke but he never stopped believing in his dream. So he didn't give up. He used his first social security check of only $105, and traveled across the United States in search of potential business partners offering them his secret recipe. It was one of the hardest periods of his life. He was living in his car surviving with little food, facing rejection after rejection, but giving up was never an option. Colonel Sanders was rejected 1009 times before his chicken recipe was accepted only once!
