Clearly, life is the most precious gift given to us by God and it’s up to us in which direction we would like to take it. We can either make it or break it through our actions. So it’s a very pertinent topic to address either in school, college, office or on a public platform. As we see these days, our youth wasting their lives and whiling away their time recklessly, it, of course, has become a serious cause of concern for us. So prepare an effective speech on life and try to influence people through your good thoughts.
Long and Short Speech on Life
Speech – 1
Good Morning Students – How’re you all doing?
Today, let’s make this class a little more special by not discussing your syllabus or exams, but discussing a profound topic that everyone can relate with, i.e. Life. Do you know what life is like? How would you define life?
Students, we should all thank God every single day for giving us this life and another day to work towards our goals. We are all unique individuals and no one is born like you and no one will ever be, so cherish your individuality. Many times, I come across people blaming God for things that they don’t have and cursing their lives, but little do they realize that this life itself is precious if we make it worth living and work hard.
Life itself is an opportunity to live a meaningful life and enable others to do so. It, therefore, doesn’t matter for how many years you live all that matters is a quality of life and how well you live your life. Plus, how many lives you have been able to touch by giving them encouragement and love.
On the second thought, the fear of death always hovers over our lives. Everyone has to face death sooner or later, but that doesn’t mean that it should deter us from living life to the fullest or achieving our goals. A person is wise only when he/she is prepared to meet the doom when it comes, but till that time enjoys every bit of it. It is a sense of preparedness. It is a journey in everyone’s life wherein we have to traverse the bridge of death to be able to wake up to life eternal.
And believe it or not, but the secret of life is best known to those who are not attached to anything profoundly so much so that they remain out of touch with worries as well as shifting fortunes of life. These are the people who do not measure their lives in terms of materialistic possessions, but by measuring their lives in terms of people they cannot live without.
Life is also about stewardship, it is being given to us by God in the form of trust that we will make it meaningful in whatever we can. Such a thought at the back of our mind will always remind us that we are answerable to God every time, for opportunities, treasure, and talent he has gifted us with.
This is attuned with the words of Jesus, who said, “Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” The other truth is those wrong things taking place in this world will be made right and that God will take care of his children and good deeds will certainly be rewarded.
It is this thinking that makes life worthwhile and it is with the love of our family and friends that life can be made beautiful. Life is also made more beautiful and purposeful by discharging our duties in our family, at work, society and the world at large.

Hello Friends – Warm Greetings of the Day!!
Today, I am here to address the topic called ‘Life’. Life is like a roller coaster ride and is never the same. It has its share of ups and downs, but everyone strives to remain happy and wishes to lead a perfect life. Some people aspire for an attractive job, some for a flourishing business, some for a healthy life, and the list just goes on. We want to build our family in the best way possible and want to make such friends who can stand by us through thick and thin.
We want to have all the material possessions that life offers us and wish all our problems to simply disappear. So everyone wishes for a great life which could be at different levels. For instance, one person may define life in a way with which another person cannot relate and for him/her it can be just having 3-course meals in a day and having a roof over his/her head. For some other person, it could be having a big house or maybe a huge bank balance in their banks.
But in the present times, priorities are changing and so are people’s requirements. With high-paid jobs and increasing materialistic desires, the level of stress is also increasing. So with an increasing level of stress, people are facing severe medical conditions and are finding themselves unable to cope with the challenges that life throws on them. As a result of which, suicide rates and cases of early deaths are increasing. So having a stress-free life is what one wishes for. This is the basic human desire.
If one has to put up with a constant struggle and show resistance, it results in the crippling of their souls and makes such people detached from life. They become drained of energy and to them, it feels as if they are running a constant marathon. Life then becomes too hard to handle. But it’s our perception that shapes reality and our lives as well. Life certainly throws challenges and hurdles, but those who have the sheer will power emerge triumphantly and never give up no matter how hard the circumstances may become.
Life is definitely not a cakewalk and it’s indeed very normal to get discouraged and broken. But it is important to rise against all odds and continue doing your best because it is certain that giving up is not the solution and constant endeavors definitely take you somewhere and of course closer to your dreams.
The only mantra for a successful life is to have faith in your own self and never bow down to the testing situations. Only that person will reap the fruit of the labor, who will put all his/her might in pursuing his/her dreams. So embrace your situation happily and find your way in the chaos. If life is difficult then also prove that so are you and success will then definitely touch your feet.
This is all I have to say, thank you, everyone!

Good Morning one and all!
I warmly welcome everyone to this yet another session on Yoga and Meditation. But before our yoga guru begins with his session, I – Kamalkant Sharma – your host for today would like to deliver a succinct speech on Life. Since yoga is very much associated with life and helps in improving upon its quality, it is also important to talk about its different facets and how it can be made better by adopting some healthy measures.
However, if I talk about life, I would say that it’s difficult to define it in a few words. But I would like to share an important axiom, i.e. “Life is a journey and not a destination”. This journey is full of adventure and is never the same all the time. It’s a fascinating mixture of good times and bad times, achievements and disappointments, happiness and sorrow, luxury and struggle, opportunities and frustrations and a lot more. The road of this journey is bumpy and rough to give you a really difficult time and take you by the storm. But people react to such a situation differently as some give up, some stumble and fall badly but rise again to win in the end. Thus, life is really about those people who are true fighters and want to make their way by any means. With this attitude and constant striving, such people become immortal and their stories of bravery become a source of inspiration for others.
On the other hand, life would become very monotonous and dull if you would experience the same emotion and there are no challenges to face. Time-tested situations and challenges only help a person to become a better and refined individual because if there would be no difficult situation in life we will not be able to realize our potential and inner strength. So take life as a game, make mistakes and then learn from your mistakes. Perfection lies in imperfection and we all attain our goals by making mistakes. You must struggle to achieve what you want to achieve – whether it’s a good job, a big mansion or a huge bank balance – however, don’t do it at the expense of others and by snatching other’s possessions which rightfully belong to them.
Remember that there will be a pain of loss, failures, and loneliness but peace shall ensue in the end as it is often said, “There is a rainbow after the rain”. Failing every time doesn’t mean that you are a loser ad cannot really achieve anything it could even be that the time is not favoring you. So grab every single opportunity you find in your way and leave no room for regrets and sweat to labor. Life is like a kaleidoscopic picture with multifarious options. You would also discover your world ultimately just keep chasing your dreams and work relentlessly without giving up. There will be times when you will turn completely blank, but remember there is a world out there that is shining bright and beautiful for you.
Standing still is never an option and it will never be!

Good Morning Friends – How you all are doing?
I warmly welcome you all to today’s speech ceremony and the topic chosen by our committee is ‘Life’. Chances are many of us must have asked this question to ourselves every now and then. The question is eternal and something which we have all been trying to make sense of in this big and bizarre world. And, the question is ‘What is the actual meaning of life?’
No matter which background we hail from, what position we hold and how many zeroes we have to add in our paychecks, etc. for me the true meaning of life is summed up in the word called Service. As Dalai Lama in the following lines revealed to his followers the true meaning or purpose of life: “We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful with our lives. If you contribute to other people’s happiness, you’ll find the true goal, the true meaning of life.”
This is a philosophy worth taking inspiration from as immense satisfaction is achieved after helping the poor and needy. A life lived for only selfish reasons, is not a life in the true sense of the term. The real joy is found at the service of God and humanity, rest is all illusory. However, having said that I would still like to say that it is important to do your Karma and discharge your roles and responsibilities well. It is good to earn hefty packages, have a great social standing and to have materialistic desires too because these are the things that drive a person to work hard and achieve goals.
It’s just that one should know how to strike a balance between your personal desires and acts of philanthropy. Of course, you are not expected to give away your fortune to the needy people, but it is at least expected that we develop a feeling of empathy and compassion towards others. This world should not be constantly taken as a battlefield and life as a battle in itself rather we should live in harmony and spread the message of love and peace everywhere only then will this planet become a safe haven to live in. Even until this time, you aren’t able to make sense of your life or find a true meaning of life; then you can retreat, contemplate/meditate and look within yourself. Repeat this exercise and you will surely be able to find peace and direction in life.
Assess your own situation carefully and try to find out what gives you happiness in life and take steps towards it. If there’s anything that depresses your soul you should try to cut it off from your life. Find your passion and work towards it for we live only once. With this, I would like to end my speech.
Thank you, everyone, for listening to me patiently!
