`If there's a will, there's a way' is one motto I would like to make my own. The saying means that if anyone was determined enough to get something done, that person would always find a way to do it.
I believe that determination is the fighting spirit of a person. Without determination, a person would tend to give up too easily in getting what she or he wants. I remember a time when I played the piano and I could not get the timing of the piece correct. My exam was merely two weeks away and I panicked at the thought of not being able to play the piece of music correctly. I decided that I should practise really hard. I felt desperate and grave because no matter how hard I tried, I still could not play it correctly.
I stopped playing for one afternoon and decided to listen to a tape in which the piece was recorded. After listening
intently for several hours, I went back to the piano and tried playing the piece again. I was extremely happy when I got it right on my second try. Everything seemed clearer after that. The music seemed to flow right out of my fingertips.
Needless to say, I did pretty well for my piano exam. From then on, I believe a lot in having determination. If I wanted to accomplish even the smallest task, I must not give up too easily or it will never be done. This new-found spirit in me will get me far in life.
