Whether you decide to work on your goals or not, run or walk, get dirty or remain clean, sit or stand, you will still grow old by the day.
You will grow wrinkles much faster if you don’t get busy.
Age should never be an excuse for not working to change your life and the lives of those around you.
It Is Never Too Late To Start Your Hustle.
If you thought you were late, ask yourself this question. What did Colonel Sanders think when he started KFC at the age of 65?
Here is the BIG QUESTION.
What is that hustle that you so much want to start?
What is stopping you from starting?
It may seem like it is too late to start something, but nothing is stopping you.
Age is one of the most popular excuses many young people use today.
The story of Colonel Sander, the founder of KFC, reminds us that it is never too late to start something.
You will still grow old anyway, whether you start working on your dream or not.
Having an idea and following through to the end is what brings about change.
Sanders began selling fried chicken from a roadside restaurant. Today, what started as a small restaurant has given birth to one of the largest chains of restaurants across the globe.
He started KFC at the age of 65. He would have retired if he wanted to, but he decided it was too early for him to retire.
Sanders had a burning desire, and that desire gave birth to KFC.
Sometimes you think, oh am too old to run, there is too much competition, I can’t get into that business, or what if it doesn’t work, what if I lose all my life savings?
So often, when we say these words, we don’t realize that we are constructing a ceiling over our heads.
Today, KFC has remained one of the most widely recognized brands across the globe.
I have heard most young people complaining about lack of time, but I sincerely do not think that lack of time is the issue. The main problem, in this case, is a lack of vision and direction.
At 65, most people think of nothing but retirement. But for Sanders, it was time to venture into something new, and he succeeded.
It is dangerous not to have an idea, but it is worse not to act on your ideas because soon you will be no more. That’s why they say, “The grave yard is one of the richest places.”
Most people go to their graves with their ideas, dreams, or music untapped.
It is dangerous not to think of starting something. The world is changing so fast, and if you don’t change, you will be left behind.
Today, we are told that skill and experience are much more important than all the certificates you will ever have.
In Kenya today, research has shown that more students are joining TVET colleges in search of skills.
Who would have thought that fried chicken would make Mr. Sanders one of the most recognized individuals even after his death?
Sanders left a legacy. What will you leave behind when that time comes?
What you do with your life is what counts, not what you say will do. You can start working on finding an idea today, and don’t stop there; look for ways to implement your ideas.
Look around you, find a product or a service that you can offer at a fee. Capitalize on it, scale it and make a living out of it.
Make sure you remain as professional as you possibly can.
