It's never too late to start over

You may have seen this story before, or maybe its your first time seeing it all together.

Read all the way through and think about what was accomplished and recognize that we all have the ability to rise from the lowest points in our lives to achieve more than we or anyone can imagine for us.

Do you know who this is?

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.  But he failed.
He joined the army and washed out there.
He applied to law school, but he was rejected.
He became an insurance salesman 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 the age 65 he retired.

On the 1st day of retirement he received a check from the Government for $105.

He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.
He decided to commit suicide.
He felt that life wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.

He sat under a tree to write his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have/could have accomplished with his life. 
He realized there was much more that he hadn’t yet done. 

He felt that there was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.
So he borrowed $87 against his check.  He bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe.  He then went door to door to sell them to his neighbors 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
It's never too late to start all over.


You have what it takes to be successful. 
Go for it and make a difference.
