Success Story of Colonel Sanders, Founder Of KFC

  1. 1. SUCCESS STORY OF COLONEL SANDERS Submitted By- REYAZ JAFAR Jaipuria Institute Of managemenrt,Lucknow
  2. 2. WHY I SELECTED COLONEL SANDERS  PASSIONATE  HOPEFUL  POSITIVE ATTITUDE  HARD WORKING  DETERMINED  NEVER GIVE UP ZEAL
  3. 3. HISTORY OF THE ENTREPRENEUR  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 café.  He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.  At age 65 he retired.
  4. 4.  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.
  5. 5. LEARNINGS  I am inspired by him as he is a person who never gave up in his life even though he didn’t achieve anything big for a long time.  The way he stood up at the age of 65, explains that with complete hard work and efficiency, one can even attain impossible things in life.  If a person wants to become big in life, then its really important to dream big as well.  He proved that there is no age and experience that counts in any success, its just mere sincerity and effort to gain whatever one desires of.  I know now that even if failures comes at one’s door many times, opportunity would also knock one day. So, one should wait for the right time and keep on moving in life, until and unless one gets it for lifetime.
  6. 6. THANK YOU...
