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.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
—John F. Kennedy
I'm writing this on Thanksgiving Day in America. I'm sitting in the home where I was born and raised for my entire life. My family is scattered around the room just a few short feet away.
As I sit back and think about what I'm thankful for this year, I've settled on one thing that seems to have made the difference in my life over and over again. I'm thankful that I believe in myself.
This quality is partially who I am and partially a result of the family and friends that have supported me throughout my life. Regardless of where it comes from, it is the one quality that allows me to not only talk about what I'm grateful for, but also to live it out.
Nothing Will Work If You Don't Believe In It
Earlier this week, I posted an article on 2 psychological tricks that offer easy ways to lose weight. The article was well–received overall, but I also heard a complaint from someone who identified themselves as “NoSalt” (the internet is a strange place).
Here's what NoSalt had to say…
“None of these techniques will work for me:
1. Let your plate control your portion.
My problem is that I eat until I feel full. Sure, I can use a small plate, but I'll just keep going back until I feel full.
2. Pick a color that makes life easy.
How can normal people possibly do this? I don't want to have 3, 4, 5 … different sets of dishes for every color meal that I have.
3. Try the holiday version of intermittent fasting. Literally. Simply don’t eat for a 24–hour period. This strategy is one form of intermittent fasting.
What do I do about my hunger pains? What do I do if I want food? I'll end up snapping at people around me, and chewing all my fingernails to the bone.”
I did my best to answer the questions with actionable advice that would help the reader overcome the problems mentioned. But there is something much more important going on here.
Are You Determined To Fail?
Do you notice the theme throughout all of the questions? There is an undercurrent of self–doubt and vulnerability. The unspoken thought that drives these questions is, “I don't believe these ideas will work for me.” Or, stated another way, “I don't believe I can make these ideas work. I don't believe in myself.”
Worrying about not being able to implement a few diet changes is just one, tiny example of this fear. But a lack of belief in yourself will limit you no matter how great the ideas or opportunities are that you are exposed to.
My biggest question to the reader above would be this: Why are you determined to make these ideas not work for you? Why are you searching for reasons why these ideas won't succeed instead of figuring out a way to make something good happen?
The biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful ones (in health, in business, and in life) is that successful people are determined to make the situation work for them rather than playing the role of the victim and searching for reasons why a situation won't work.
No idea will work for every person on the planet, but many ideas can work for most people … if you believe that you can make them work. You have to be willing to not just think differently, but to also to experiment with new ideas and trust that you'll discover a way to make them work.
Believe in Yourself
The biggest difference I've noticed between successful people and unsuccessful people isn't intelligence or opportunity or resources. It's the belief that they can make their goals happen.
We all deal with vulnerability, uncertainty, and failure. Some of us trust that if we move forward anyway, then we will figure it out. As I sit here on Thanksgiving, I'm thankful that I'm one of these people.
When I started my business, I was the only entrepreneur in our family in the last century. I didn't have anyone to learn from, but I trusted that I would figure it out anyway.
When I was kicked off a train in the middle of the night while traveling through Hungary, I was lost and confused. I couldn't find anyone who spoke English, so as the train pulled away I ran along side, hopped back on, and trusted that I would figure it out anyway.
When I've discovered an opportunity that sounds awesome but that I'm not qualified for (which happens often), I trust that I'll figure it out and go for it anyway.
I believe in myself. This confidence has made the difference for me again and again. I didn't need intelligence or opportunity or resources. Just a simple belief in myself.
Do You Believe That Change Is Possible for You?
One of the most foundational beliefs of this community is that you can become better.
We believe that it is possible for human beings to improve. We believe that it is possible to raise the bar in your own life even if the world around you accepts average. We believe in ourselves and in each other. We believe that if you want better health or more happiness or a more meaningful job that you can make those things happen.
And because of this belief we are willing to test, experiment, and try new things even when we feel uncertain. If you don't believe that it's possible to make new things work, then it's hard to make any progress. I don't care how good the ideas are, nothing will work for you if you don't believe in it. And more importantly, nothing will work if you don't believe in yourself.
