Most of the time we blame others for not trusting in us or not supporting us. What I believe is rather than expecting the acceptance from other around us, you must accept yourself first. Then only you can make progress and be a self-confident person. And this is today’s article topic. Please note that this article can be used as a speech, essay, or paragraph. I have written it for school students, so I tried to keep it simple and neat.

A Short Speech

Dear friends, how many times somebody said to you, you can’t do it. They can be your parents, relatives, and sometimes friends too. When you say, I want to participate in music show or I want to be an actor or an athlete for that matter; they say you can’t do it. When somebody wants to do something out of the league people around them try to demotivate them. Why do they do it? what’s there motive behind it? What I will say is, that’s not important. You should believe in yourself first.

Let me start by saying this “If you don’t believe in yourself why anybody else going to believe in you?“. It’s as simple as that. You may ask why and how I will trust myself and my abilities? Right?

Let me tell you that, every human brain is same. The only different thing between us is how we use our brain, how dedicated are you towards your goals; and that makes the difference. If you are demoralising yourself then everybody around you is going to do the same. So rather than blaming others to draw you back, you must take it on yourself. You must prove yourself that you are not a penny less than anybody else. The day you will get that feeling you will start to believe in yourself.

I will go one step further and say it doesn’t matter whether they believe or not; all that matters is whether you believe in yourself.

It’s difficult to do self-analysis, I will tell you a short method which I used to be more confident about myself. You should try to do small things that you already know, complete those activities and enjoy the sense of success. Enjoy the sense of achievement from this. And the next time try something harder in the same field, you may fail at it a couple of times, try again.When you will complete that work or activity or a hobby you will feel good. Continue this method. Take one more difficult thing and complete it; a step at a time. And that’s the way you will start believing in yourself. This is not enough but this is good enough to start with, so don’t wait for a messiah to save you from this world; you got to do it yourself.

On this positive note, I will stop my speech. I believe that you will also try to find the ways to believe in yourself.

I would like to thank the principal sir for allowing me to share my views on such important topic. Thank you very much good evening.

Essay on topic Believe in Yourself

I am giving this essay in imaginary story format. I believe it connects well.

There was a boy called Sachin. He scored highest in 12th board exams. Parent, teachers and friends were happy for him but Sachin was not happy. Parent and sibling were celebrating his success, they were calling distant relatives and giving them this good news. But all these celebrations and wishes were making him angry.

Now, he was supposed to admit in engineering college and then do M.Sc. from reputed American university. Parents were trying to arrange the money for admission, he even got good marks in entrance exam. His admission was now just a few weeks away, still, Sachin was not happy. Now his parents also started worrying about him, they tried to ask him, but all efforts were in vain.

Next Week, one of the Sachin’s cousins Gauri came to the home. After some chit chat, she came to know about Sachin. She didn’t even take 15 minutes to understand what’s wrong with Sachin. She took him out for coffee. They both were having coffee at CCD. Gauri asked him to open his mind and speak the heart out.

Sachin said, he wants to become a singer but nobody supports him. Parent strictly said no to singing, they say it is waste of time. He spoke his heart for 15 minutes or more. He was blaming others of his situation. Gauri interrupted him and asked, “Do you believe in yourself? Are you an awesome singer?” He surprised, took some time to answer, and said, “Yes, I am a good singer”. Gauri laughed and said, “that’s the problem, my cute little brother”. She said, “you must believe in yourself 100% or more than that. The day you will say I am an awesome singer not just a good singer and I am not afraid of challenges in this career; I will fight and win over all those hurdles, that day others will start to believe in you”. And to make that happen, you must believe in yourself, first.

Sachin understood what Gauri said. He smiled after a long time. And promised Gauri that, he will pursue his singing career with studies. He said, “he likes to study too”. He said, “I will work on my singing, I need to improve on a lot of things till I get the confidence to say that I am an awesome singer”.


I have noticed people asking these essays, speeches, and paragraphs in different length of words like 100, 150, 200, 250, 500 words. Rather than repeating same information with little bit different language in various word length forms, I have kept it simple. You can use information from both sections and draft your essay or short speech accordingly.

You can find compering or anchoring speech scripts here.
