WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY

The meaning of the proverb is that if we are determined to do a thing, we can certainly find a way to do it. It is will-power that enables us to succeed. Nothing is impossible for a man who has strong will-power and a firm determination to act. History teaches us that when men have strong determination, they can achieve great things. There may be obstacles, but they can be overcome. Napoleon, Gandhiji, Lincoln and others worked, challenged heaven and earth, swam against the current, and emerged successful and left imprints on the pages of world history. They proved to the world that whatever be the obstacles, if one has will, determination, courage, endurance and perseverance, one can attain anything and everything in the world. Napoleon said, “There is nothing impossible. ‘Impossibility’ is a meaningless word in the dictionary”. The opposition of a sizeable section of America did not prevent Abraham Lincoln from his plan of abolishing slavery from the map of America. The bloodshed at Jallianwalla Bagh did not instill fear in the hearts of patriotic Indians. Instead, it only encouraged them to liberate the country from the clutches of the foreigners. The lives of great scientists like Louis Pasteur and Madame Curie prove the need for strong determination to fight against any obstacle. In short, strong will and determination form the key to success in life.
