Where there is a will , there is a way.

From our childhood itself, we have heard about a very old and famous proverb- “Where there is a will, there is a way.” Eventhough very simple, however it has deep and meaningful advice for everyone. Its essential meaning is that if anyone sets their minds to do something, then they will be able to do it, regardless of the circumstances. In short, we can say that it illustrates the importance of will power that has the capacity to bring a change in someone’s life.

In our daily lives, we assign many tasks to ourselves. However, many of the times we are unable to fulfil it generally. What do you think is the reason for the same? There can be many propositions like more tasks in one’s plate that they could do, lack of proper planning, time management, distraction by social media etc. Here we need to understand a very important term also known as WILL POWER, which depicts the determination to achieve one’s goals. Therefore, we can say that where there is a will there is a way enlighten us to be focused, persistent and hard working to complete our goals of life.



Dreaming about something is not only enough to achieve it. People who are willing to take the risk, persistently work hard throughout, will definitely reach to their goals, eventually. If you just dream and dream about something and do not put in any kind of sincere efforts to achieve it, will most probably fail and trail behind the line of success.

Let’s talk about some real-life historic examples of well-known personalities’ Primarily, we all have heard about Martin Luther King. This was person who was responsible for bringing civil rights to the black people of America. We know how much difficult it is to bring such changes, however his strong will power and determination contributed in removing racism from the nation. If we read his stories, we can see that even in jail, he never gave up and fought continuously to fulfil his dream. Secondly, lets take the example of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi. He is a legendary example who followed this proverb in this entire life. What made this possible? Gandhiji was very desperate upon freeing India from the claws of the British Raj, and so he did. And this was only possible with his will power and constant efforts. As a person, he was very weak physically, but his will power was weak. He played a very important part in India’s independence.

I sincerely believe that everyone has an internal will power, determination, dedication and ability o work hard. Thus, what we need to do is just need to recognize our internal strength and develop it within in order to achieve our goal by overcoming all the hurdles that comes in our way. Let us all focus on our goal so as to get ultimate victory because where there is a will, there is a way!



We generally make lots of promises to our self everyday such as to maintain daily routine, daily exercise, finish home work on time, house cleaning, obey parents and teachers, commitment towards study daily, etc. However, sometimes we do not win because of the lack of will power and strong determination. Whenever we see towards our history, we find many great personalities like Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Edmund Hillary, Swami Vivekananda; etc who saw various big dreams and the most important point is that they were able to fulfill their dreams just because they had strong will power towards their goal. They were very clear about their decisions and each step decided for reaching towards the goal.


They never gave up in front of their hard times and continued walking on their way by overcoming all the difficulties. They were able to find out the right path of success. Now-a-days, most of the people of this generation don’t have patience and will. Thus they lack achieving their goal due to their wrong attitudes and greediness. Just think, what will happen if clouds stop raining, sun stop giving sunlight, rivers stop giving water, trees stop giving fruits, etc. We cannot live our life happily if nature stops helping us. We can learn about how to develop commitment towards our work from each and every natural cycle.


This English proverb ‘where there is a will there is a way’ is means that we cannot succeed in life without having the will power and determination towards the goal achievement. Suppose that a student want to get first position in class without hard work and proper preparation, he/she cannot do the same in any condition as he/she lacks the determination and will of hard work. However, he/she can achieve the goal next year after hard work and complete preparation.


Achieving things which are impossible can be easily obtained by the strong will power and hard work. So, we can possible the things which are impossible through our continuous hard work. We all have internal will power, determination, dedication and capacity of hard work. We just need to recognize our internal strength and develop such natural powers within us to reach to the goal by overcoming all the difficulties of the way. We need to focus on our goal to get ultimate victory because where there is a will, there is a way.
