"Believe in Yourself" is a Sesame Street song of encouragement. The central message of the song is that you can be or do anything you want if you just believe in yourself. Even when other people doubt you can do something, or say you are crazy, you should believe in yourself and not get too scared to try.
The song has been performed by Luis, Jelani, the Neville Brothers, *NSYNC, Diana Ross, Ray Charles and the Sesame Street cast, and as a trio between Bob, Gordon, and Susan. The song was also featured in the Sesame Street Live stage show Super Grover! Ready for Action.
