Good morning.... inspiration for a boring mOnday.

Have nice day.....

Don't be Chicken
He was 65 years old when he received his first social
security check of $99. He was broke, and owned a small house
and a beat up car. He made a decision that he has got to
change. The only idea he had was a chicken recipe, which his
friends liked. With that idea in mind, he took massive
action. He left his home in Kentucky and traveled to many
states in the US to sell his idea. He told the restaurant
owners that he had a chicken recipe that people liked and he
was giving it to them for free. What he wanted in return was
for the restaurant owners to pay him a small percentage on
the pieces of chicken sold. He got rejections after
rejections, but did not give up. In fact, he got over 1000
rejections. He got 1009 no's before he got his first yes.
With that one success Colonel Harland Sanders changed the
eating habits of the whole world with Kentucky Fried

Age is no barrier to success, and so is capital. What is
needed is an idea put into action, followed with proper
planning and persistency. How many of us will keep knocking
on doors when we have received 1000 rejections? I presume
not many! This is why there are not many successes like
Colonel Sanders.


evhead: Co-founded and CEO'ed Pyra Labs, the creators of Blogger, in 1999 left the building

evhead: "The reason I'm leaving probably comes down to personality more than anything. I've just always been stubbornly independent-minded -- even when it wasn't necessarily in my best interest. I hated school. I dropped out of college (never believing I needed a degree because I wasn't going to work for anyone anyway). I started two or three companies (depending on what you call a 'company') before starting Pyra. (Let's just call them 'great learning experiences.') I only ever had one real job, and it lasted just a few months, though it was at another cool company (O'Reilly)."
