where there's a will there's a way

This is the song name composed and played by Delaney & Bonnie and Friends into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The name is originated from the proverb Where there's a will there's a way which used to ​mean that if you are ​determined enough, you can ​find a way to ​achieve what you ​want, ​even if it is very ​difficult. (ở đâu có ý chí, ở đó có con đường)
I show you a video showing how a dog to enter into a tube while clenching a bunch of bamboo. It tries to go through the bridge anyway. My Facebook friend has interpreted that in Vietnamese in humour.

Examples:
We'll get this piano up the stairs somehow. Where there's a will, there's a way. I have no doubt that Bob will find a publisher for his novel. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Similar expressions:
  1. when the going gets tough, the tough get going: cái khó ló cái khôn
  2. when the chips are down: when you are in a very ​difficult or ​dangerous ​situation, ​especially one that makes you ​understand the ​true ​value of ​people or things:
    One ​day when the ​chips are down, you will ​know who ​your ​true ​friends are.
