Where there is a will there is a way
This famous saying speaks of the importance of a strong will. You can achieve anything if you have a strong will. `Will’ here means determination. So, if you have a strong determination, there is nothing that you can not achieve. Nothing is impossible. Everything is made possible if you make a strong resolve. A weak willed person is sure to fail in any walk of life.
Your friend may have scored a very high percentage of marks. You too like to complete with him. But, just desire is of no use. Your desire should prompt you to have a strong determination to realize it. Then only you can succeed in your attempt. On the other hand, if your will is weak, you forget it soon. Therefore your strong will is the foundation of your success in life.
A great majority of people do not have this strong will. At the outset, they resolve to achieve a noble purpose in life. But it is not always easy to reach their goal. They encounter many troubles and dangers on the way to success. Only a man of strong will can overcome the dangers and reach his goal safely. Nothing is impossible for a man of strong will. Of course, often they face failures and disappointments. But these failures and disappointments make their determination all the more strong. With redoubled strength of will they march forward? They rest not until they get success.

His strong will stood him inn good stead. He used slice of wood as slate and paper. A piece of burnt charcoal was his pencil. That way he learnt.
