You’re Never Too Old To Follow Your Dreams

Updated: March 10, 2016

Harland David Sanders founded Kentucky Fried Chicken when he was 62 years old. Three years after, his restaurant closed down because of poor sales.

Not willing to give up on his dreams, he pursued franchising and with the help of Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, KFC was able to rise from its ashes to become the billion dollar company it is today.

And if you think about it, Colonel Sanders actually became a multi-millionaire at an age when most people have given up on their dreams of financial freedom.

He refused to let go of that dream – and he achieved it.

And just like Colonel Sanders, these group of old men have realized the power of having a dream to drive your passion for life.

Originally a television commercial for TC Bank, Taiwan’s Ogilvy & Mather creative team narrates an extraordinary story based on true events.

Watch and be inspired.

What do you live for? What are your dreams?

There’s no time for excuses. You’re neither too poor, too busy nor too old to follow your dreams and become what you’ve always wanted to be.

Make the decision to live an extraordinary life today.

  3. Hi Fitz!

    I have been your avid follower for more than a year now. I’ve been wanting to put up a website like yours but which caters more to people who are like me, ie, to people who think like me, not necessarily my age. Thus, an opportunity arose and I am beginning to develop this website and hopefully I can launch it in a couple of months. Sensing that you are truly helpful, perhaps you could go over my blog website and tell me what you think about it and what I should do to streamline it, kind of, because I think that I may be putting in all sorts.

    Will be happy to hear from you, because no matter what age, the dream lives on, right?

  6. Hi!

    Talking about KFC, I’ve read a lot of info regarding Pepsi Co.’s ownership of its mother franchise and that is why you can see only Pepsi products on its soda dispensers. But just few days ago, observe some stores displaying Coke products. I wonder if there have been some change of ownership with my favorite KFC.

    Just curious πŸ™‚

  7. Thats very inspiring story. I never knew he was 62 when he found KFC. I am going to take ownership of my dreams now. Thanks again for such a nice post.
