So don't give up, never be afraid to try. When you step forward, you make yourself stronger, and move towards victory. You can do anything, you just have to believe.

" Never Give Up "

Today we will introduce you to the story of a person who fulfilled his dreams despite facing difficulties. His career started at the age when people take retirement. This is the story of Colonel Harland Sanders, the owner of KFC, who started KFC at the age of 65, after which his name started being counted among the richest people in the world. But before reaching here he had failed 1009 times. An ordinary person cannot get up after failing 10 or 20 times, but for those who want to show the world what they are and what they can do, age and failure do not matter, rather they just keep trying to achieve their goal.

Birth Of Colonel Harland Sanders:-

Colonel Harland Sanders was born in 1890 in Henryville, Indiana, USA. His father died when he was just 6 years old. After this, circumstances at home became difficult and his mother began working in a factory while Sanders took care of his younger siblings. Sanders learned cooking very early, at just 7 years old.

At around the age of 12, his mother remarried, resulting in Sanders having problems with his stepfather, causing him to move in with his aunt and work on a farm. Sanders dropped out of school in the seventh grade.

Wife And Children Left :-

After this, he continued to work in various places, tried to join the army, but was expelled from there. He got married at the age of about 19. Worked in Railways for some time, but after some dispute he left from there, after which his wife also did not want to live with him and she separated with her children. Sanders worked many odd jobs in his life, such as selling insurance, selling credit cards, selling tires, making lamps, and even tried his hand at boating. Sanders never gave up.

Title Of 'Colonel' :-

Sanders' restaurant business first hit the road to success in 1930, when he purchased a gas station in Corbin, Kentucky. Many passengers started suggesting him to open a restaurant also. His love for chicken was there since childhood, so he tried selling different types of chicken in the restaurant. He started getting success in this work and he started earning a lot.

One day, the Governor of Kentucky came to his restaurant in 1950 and tasted his chicken. He liked him very much and gave Harland Sanders the title of 'Colonel'. The title of Colonel is considered an important honour.

The Restaurant Broke Down :-

A highway was about to pass through the location of Sanders's restaurant, after which his restaurant was demolished and the struggle to find a new route began again. He considered how he could earn more profits by selling his restaurant's recipes. With this thinking, he tried to sell his fried chicken recipe to many restaurants. He went from place to place, but heard 'no' everywhere. He got his first ‘yes’ after a lot of hard work and struggle, and this began the journey of KFC.

KFC Started :-

Colonel Sanders started KFC at the age of 65. When a restaurant offered him to sell his chicken recipe, he started sending it to the restaurant along with his special spices, thereby keeping the secret of his recipe and making people enjoy his delicious chicken. Subsequently, during the month of October 1963, John Y. Brouse Jr., a lawyer, and Jack C. Macy, a businessman, met with Sanders and presented him with an offer to purchase a KFC franchise. Initially, he refused, but later agreed to $2 million, which happened in January 1965.

This deal ensured that Kentucky Fried Chicken Company would expand its restaurants around the world and would never compromise on quality. Sanders also offered a salary of $40,000, and his salary was later increased to $75,000. After this, his company earned name in various industries, such as Reynolds and PepsiCo, and now this company is owned by ‘Yum Brands Incorporation’. Colonel Sanders died in 1980 at the age of 90. Today, Colonel Sanders is no more, but he will always be remembered by KFC chicken lovers. Nowadays, KFC is present in more than 22,000 stores in more than 150 countries.

Moral Of This Story :– " Never Give Up "

This story teaches us that one should never give up to achieve success in life. One must never deny struggle in good and bad times, and sometimes try to move forward despite defeat. The story of Colonel Sanders of KFC is an example of how he made himself capable even after his father's death and his mother leaving him. No matter what the circumstances are, you should never be disappointed. What matters is how hard you are willing to work and never give up.

From the story of Colonel Sanders, we learn that struggle and hard work are very important to fulfill dreams. They remind us that no matter what the circumstances, our sensitivity and struggle can lead us to success.

So you too work hard to achieve your dreams, do not give up under any circumstances, and resolve to fulfill your dreams. Because the most important path to fulfillment of dreams is your own struggle and hard work.
