Excuses – our never-ending excuses have made us lethargic. We cast aside something as inconvenient and crib about how we do not have the things we need to get there and achieve our dreams. If you resonate with this statement, then this coolie from Kerala will inspire you.

We often hear stories of struggle only after the person has achieved some kind of conventional success. While there are many who are working hard towards their goals, their stories do not come out.

This man who hails from the state of Kerala has proved that hard work and patience when mixed you will achieve and take your life wherever you aspire too. Sreenath K, a coolie from Kerala cracked the written test of the Kerala state’s civil services exam with the help of railway WiFi.

Sreenath K, who is a from a famous hill station in the state of ‘Kerala’, ‘Munnar’ and was working as a coolie at Kochi’s ‘Ernakulam’ railway station for the past five years.

The man used to carry the load on his head for his daily wages and run his family, but never ever he lost his focus from the preparation for the state civil services exam.

The man spoke with NDTV, “I have appeared thrice for the exam. What I do is put on my earphones and listen to the study material as I carry the luggage or solve questionnaires in my mind. This way I can study while at work. I revise all my work at night when I get free time. I will keep studying. While I work as a coolie because I have the pressure of running my house, I will keep studying and appearing for exams. If I appear for enough exams, I am bound to get a job.”

The man will very soon be appearing for the interview and if he clears the 3rd stage he has a wish to work under the Depart of Revenue and Land as village field assistant.

Just remember one thing in life is that if you want to do something and you keep on working on it, in the end, you are going to have it.

Hard work is a very important aspect of the human life. But with hard work life does not become easy nor will you ever achieve an overnight success, for which patience is the necessity of everything.
