He was about to kill himself… The rest of the story is unbelievable

There is no failure except in no longer trying


  • At the age of five, his father died.
  • At 16 he stopped studying.
  • At 17 he had already lost four jobs.
  • At 18 he got married.
  • Between 18 and 22, he worked as a driver and failed again.
  • He joined the army and was retired
  • He applied for judicial school and was rejected.
  • He became an insurance salesman and failed again.
  • At 19 he became a pope.
  • At 20 his wife left him and took his only daughter
  • He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.
  • He failed to get his daughter back, but eventually convinced his wife to return home.
  • At the age of 65 he got his retirement.


On the first day of his retirement he received a government check for a total amount of $105.

He felt that the government was letting him know that he could not even support himself. He decided to kill himself, it crossed his mind that it was not necessary to live anymore when he had failed so many times.

He sat under a tree to write his will, but instead of writing what he had accomplished in his life. He realized that there were many things he hadn’t done yet.

He realized that there was something he could do better than anyone else, and that was COOKING.

He borrowed $87 from the government and bought a deep fryer, made chicken using his unique recipe and sold it door-to-door in his hometown near Kentucky, USA.

Remember: at age 65, he wanted to kill himself.

At 88, Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) was a billionaire.

And you: are you going to give up?

How many times do you have to fail to succeed?
