Today’s is a microwave society where most expect to get what they want instantly, or at least in less than a minute. People are tricked into believing that fame and success can be achieved overnight, if they only work harder, longer and faster, adopting an all-or-nothing attitude that says you must either succeed or fail, there is no in-between.

But there is an in-between—the period between success and failure that, for some, lasts for years.

There once was a 6-year-old boy who, having lost his father, was left to take on the brunt of the household responsibilities while his mother returned to work full-time. He would go on to hold several jobs during the course of his adulthood, and would experience devastating setbacks throughout his life, but there was one constant: He loved to cook and loved sharing his cooking with others. That boy was Harland Sanders, the man behind Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), which didn’t become recognized as being successful until Sanders was in his 60s.
