Below is a proverb referring to a person’s willpower
“Where there’s a will there’s a way”
This is a well-known proverb that is used very often by native English speakers. We can use it when we want to refer to a person’s strong willpower or determination to achieve something, no matter how difficult the goal is.
Unless the person has a strong desire to achieve the goal, and is motivated by this strong desire, they will not be successful.
For example, a charity didn’t think they would be able to raise enough money to renovate an old hospitable ward in their local hospital.
This ward in particular needed a lot of work done and the volunteers knew it would cost a lot of money to repair the ward and install all the necessary medical equipment.
Nevertheless, this group of volunteers were determined to raise the money, they worked tirelessly, motivating one another until they raised more than enough money for the ward.
Even though the task seemed impossible, where there’s a will there’s a way and they achieved the impressive feat.
