There is an activity in school where we have to speak on the topic "For a good cause if you are determined, you can overcome any obstacle." Here is the speech I have prepared.


If I ask any one of you to describe the topic in, say, one sentence, I am pretty sure that one of you will say the topic is too long. Even I agree to it. But, we are not here to discuss how long the topic is. Instead, I want you all to focus on the deeper meaning this 13-letter extra-ordinary word inspires. It has a meaning so deep that it affects everyone's lives.
Determination ends with tion and there are many more tion-ending words which are very well connected to determination.
For example, motivation and inspiration. Small amounts of motivations and inspirations each day boost up your determination, which helps you to reach your goals.

Everyday we look into the mirror a numerous times. But, I just want you all to try this!! I want you to stand before a mirror and think that's my competitor!! Each day improve one weakness you find in yourself, work on that weakness, then another and another and so on. You will find you are a better person than yesterday.' It's not important how you compare to others, but how you compare to who you were yesterday. If you see you've advanced even one step, then you've achieved a victory. '

You will fail many times and the world and someday even someone you trust will say,'You cannot do it.' Please, don't give up. Prove that they are wrong. Your determination will never fail you, unless you let your failures do that. People will laugh and you will want to cry. But remember, atleast you are trying. And you can go up to them with your head held high, and say them to get their specs repaired because they can very well see you failing but can't they see that you are trying too? The mistakes you make are the proof that you are trying.

I would like to conclude with a beautiful quote,"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.
