Have you ever tried the amazing crispy chicken of KFC? If you already have, then their taste is a result of unimaginable hard work and dedication by Colonel Sanders.

Before starting KFC, Colonel Sanders was literally a loser. In his entire career, he got rejected 1009 times before he was able to show his worth to the world with the delicious Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe and that too at the age of 65 years. He failed at almost every job that he tried. You name it; he had the experience of being a failure in it.

While this was not enough, Sanders also struggled in his personal life. He lost his father at the age of 7 years and was left to take care of his sister while his mother moved away and married again. He got married at an early age of 19, had 3 kids and soon got divorced because of frequent affairs during the marriage.

Here is the first thing that majority of millennial would agree and wish for and that is ‘Do what you love and then love what you do’. Although Sanders tried so many jobs for financial support he always had a passion for cooking that ultimately led him to his ultimate success. He started following his passion initially with merely some pieces of bread, vegetables, and meat to practice his skills.

2. Failure is a step towards success

Failure is that one important phase that will always come in your career. But what you do with it is all that matters. Some shape it to make it their success while others quit. If you think you have failed enough and something isn’t made for you then always remember Sanders failed for more than 1000 times and that too in between the crucial age of 10-40 years.
