Do you believe that there will always be a way, when there seems to be no way?

This proverb, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” is an old English proverb which means having the determination to find a way of doing things. While the records do not state clearly who the author of this proverb is, it is mostly believed to be created by Samuel Smiles, a Scottish government reformer and a Guru.  He is known for his self-help and inspirational writings. We sometimes find ourselves in situations where we are ready to give up because we cannot find an answer or solution to a problem. There are times when we feel that we have already done everything, yet the problem still remains. During these times, the proverb reminds us that “everything has a way, only if we have the will to find it.”
