Where there’s a will there’s a way 英文諺語

Where there’s a will there’s a way 有志者事竟成



This is a famous saying. It means that you can accomplish anything if you work hard; in this case, “will” means a strong motivation to accomplish something. So you can understand the phrase to mean “If you have a strong motivation to accomplish something, there’s a way to accomplish it.” This will be the case even if it is challenging, difficult, or seemingly impossible.

Will-power is the greatest driving force in man. It helps him get through all the difficulties in life. Will-power is the most essential ingredient of success. It enables a person to find a way to overcome the obstacle in his path. He continues his journey towards his chosen goal. A man who loses heart at the sight of failure can never achieve his goal. But a man who is determined to attain his objectives is not disheartened by failures. One should not lose heart during adversities.

The real essence of life lies in struggle. Determination and calmness help a person in his Endeavor. They provide him inspiration to achieve success. A wise man accepts the challenges of life with a calm mind. Our ancient scriptures also advocate that one should do one’ duty with determination. One should have a firm determination to strive and win.

Why this proverb is so popular? This idiom is probably so memorable because of its two ‘w’ sounds. Alliteration is often used in proverbs to help them to stick in the mind.


Paul: “I have no doubt that Jessie will find a publisher for her novel. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
