Finally I settled on Colonel Sanders because he has always served as an inspiration for me because at the age of 65 he dared to act on his dreams.
If you have been reading my blog this entire week, you have learned about four different people, all coming from different experiences, both male and female. And what has success taught us, she responds to anyone that qualifies for her through hard work, smart work, determination, patience, set-backs, goal setting, and ACTING on what you believe should be.
Now I add the fifth profile, Colonel Sanders. After his restaurant failed, he took a portion of his Social Security check and started to look for franchisee's to sell his secret recipe for chicken. He begin this endeavor at the age of 65, yes at 65 years of age.
In less than ten years he was able to sell the Kentucky Fried Chicken corporation for 2 million dollars. From a Social Security check to becoming a millionaire, because he acted on his dreams.
The Colonel teaches us a few things:
1. You are never too old to act on your dreams.
2. Every failure leads to another opportunity.
3. We each have a special Genius (recipe) that will transform our lives.
If you haven't read the other profiles, please take the time to invest in doing so, they will inspire you and motivate you.

The world needs not only people to dream, but people willing to defy the odds and self doubt and ACT on their dreams. Dreams are what makes this world so great. People that dream that flight is possible, that communication on a global platform is possible, people that believe that walking on the moon is possible.
The world is simply better when you ACT on your dreams!!!
