take a chance. I can easily put it into words,
Decide what the chances are,
And believing that this is an opportunity and acting immediately
Because what you perceive as an opportunity may turn out to be a big risk.
Because it makes me think a lot.
However, there was one man who was always looking for opportunities, and when he felt that this was an opportunity, he immediately took action.
Ray Kroc, the man who popularized McDonald’s all over the world.
The current prosperity of McDonald’s started with just one word from him to seize the opportunity.
Ray sold multimixers before joining McDonald’s.
Before that, he worked as a salesman for a company for 17 years with a paper cup.
Ray eventually became the top sales performer and sought new goals.
What he found was a multimixer.
Seeing an opportunity in the multi-mixer, Ray decided to quit the company and make a living on his own.
In his autobiography, Ray confesses that time.
It was a risky decision to leave my stable, well-paying job and go on my own.
Her wife was shocked, she was reluctant to accept the fact, and she
Her bickering was constant.
However, business gradually began to take off.
Ray’s sales activities were also spread all over the country.
Even then, he was always careful not to miss a business opportunity.
One day, he said he wanted the same multi-mixer that the shop uses.
Orders with such content flooded in from all over the United States.
It seems that the orderer decided to say this.
“Sell me one of the same multimixers that the McDonald brothers use in San Bernardino, California.”
Who are the McDonald brothers?
Ray takes an interest in the McDonald brothers and goes to meet them.
Offering delicious hamburgers and fries at low prices,
Inside and outside the store without a single piece of trash,
Manual operation to maintain the same quality,
I am impressed by the many things that the McDonald brothers restaurant is doing.
And Ray, who is always looking for business opportunities, suddenly has an epiphany.
Deploy this amazing store on every major road in the country.
Then I asked them to put their own multi-mixer in the store.
At this time, Ray still knew about the multimixer he was selling.
he was thinking
to take a chance
Ray told the McDonald brothers with enthusiasm.
“I have seen many restaurants and drive-in style eateries that carry multi-mixers, but none have the future as this one.
What do you think? Why don’t you team up with me to expand the chain? For us, this is like digging a gold mine. I had my multi-mixer in every store.
What do you think? ”
But the McDonald brothers
I am satisfied with my present life,
What more do you want?
and returned the exact opposite of Ray’s expectations.
It was enough to leave Ray speechless.
However, Rei, who cannot give up this chance,
Explain to them that if you hire people, you can earn income without working.
But my brother disagrees.
“It will bring a lot of problems.
Who would undertake such a task for us? ”
Hearing those words, a strong feeling welled up in Rei,
He insisted to Brother McDonald.
“Then let me do it!!”
These words marked the first step for McDonald’s to be loved by people around the world.
Ray Kroc at age 52.
Ray never met the McDonald brothers,
Or when Ray says “I’ll consider” or “I’ll look for you”
If I had replied, there might not be the current McDonald’s.
he’s always looking for opportunities
He has the power to turn that purpose into action as soon as he sees an opportunity.
Furthermore, at the age of 52, he has the mental strength to take on new challenges.
It is a story that made me feel that I should emulate that power and spirit.
Thank you for reading to the end.
