Is this you? Is this someone you want to be?

I’m looking around, and from where I stand there is no one stopping you. C’mon, argue with me. Give me all the reasons.

Convince me that this cannot ever be you. I know you’ll make a passionate argument for your case. I’ll listen. Now, I’ll tell you a story.

He was a loser in life. At the age of 66 he was almost broke, living off a monthly Social Security check of $105 and some savings. He was King Nothing.

Everything he had tried in his life had been a failure. Time and time again, failing. He performed many unglamorous jobs, to the chagrin of the Non Believers.

No one believed in him.

You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it — because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don’t you see?

This is what he believed.

He liked his work, so he did it well.
 
He is Colonel Harlan Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. KFC.
 
It is NEVER too late. You don’t have to be Queen/King of the Whole World. Just be the King/Queen of YOUR world.
