If there is a will there is a way | Arunima Sinha

“Where there is a will there is a way” quoted by William Hazlitt. You must have heard of this proverb phrase several times before. Most of you must be knowing its meaning as well. Here I am writing it for those who are in search of the meaning of this thought. If there is a will there is a way to achieve what you badly want.

When I was a student, we students used to write ‘thought of the day’ everyday on the blackboard in my school and this is one of those proverbs that has motivated me the most. ‘Will’ means determination to do something or willingness to do something or desire for something. So when we talk about “Where there is a will there is a way” expansion of idea we simply mean that if there is a strong determination to do something then life shows us the paths to reach our destinations. We definitely reach to our goals if we are determined and self motivated.

We all see dreams. Few come true and few remain dreams always. Now why does it happen? When we have the will to achieve our dreams only then it is possible to make them come true.

Every problem comes with a solution. Solutions are everywhere. The only thing that we need to do is to take that first step towards reaching to that solution. Instead of dragging a problem and venting about it, it’s better that we do something about it to solve it.

Anything is possible in this world to achieve



if there is a will there is a way


Now, to explain you the real meaning of the above quote, let me take you through the highly motivational real life story of Arunima Sinha who is a world class mountaineer and has scaled the highest peaks of the world even after having a prosthetic leg.

In the year 2011, Arunima Sinha, an earlier volley ball player became the world’s first female amputee to climb Mount Everest in 2013.

Arunima Sinha is from Uttar Pradesh, India. She lost one of her legs in a horrific incident, when she was thrown off the moving Padmawati Express train for resisting a chain-snatching attempt by hooligans. When she was recovering after this incident, she decided to become a mountaineer and scale the highest peaks in the world. She was provided with a prosthetic leg by a private company.

She has scaled the other highest peaks as well such as Mt. Vinson of Antarctica, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Elbrus in Europe, Kosciuszko in Australia, Aconcagua in Argentina and Carstensz Pyramid (Puncak Jaya) in Indonesia.

In 2015 Arunima was conferred the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour in India.

Have you seen how strong her will was? Nothing could stop her from believing in her dreams. She was mentally so strong that even such a horrifying incident could not break her. We are nagging about small-small things in our lives. This is not right or that has gone wrong but look at the people who have achieved everything from nothing at all.

I hope that the story of Arunima Sinha must have become successful in motivating you to take that first step towards your success even if you feel like there is nothing that you can do achieve your dreams.

Rise and shine.
