Inspirational quotes about mistakes (with a cherry on top)


I love my mistakes.

They were the awakening slap in the face when I needed it, so I could see more clearly.
When they pulled me down to the bottom of the abyss, that’s where my wings grew, becoming strong enough to launch me above my old limits.

Thank you, dear mistakes! This post is my way of saying “I’m sorry I doubted in your power.”

Inspirational quotes about mistakes


“We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.

quotes about mistakes


It’s impossible not to adore this man, R. Bach and his astonishing wisdom. This quote of his is particularly dear to me because the ending points that life is a journey.

We travel through this existence and we can choose our next destination, we bring events to ourselves… Such an amazing power we’re holding in our hands, don’t you think?

“There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.”
Richard Bach



“There are no mistakes, no coincidence. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I have to hit pause for a moment here. Don’t worry dear reader, the sequence of inspirational quotes about mistakes will continue afterward.

The quote you see above (with that adorable little girl on the left) reminded me of all times I felt silly, awkward while making the steps out of my comfort zone.

I am mentioning this right now because there are different kinds of mistakes out there, so let’s define them before we carrying on.


3 most often types of mistakes we all make

  • intentional mistakes (ones we make and we KNOW that we’re going to fail badly or hurt someone… but we do them anyway)
  • oops! accidental mistakes (ones we make when we are clumsy, tired or deconcentrated)
  • stepping out of comfort zone mistakes (most of the quotes here are devoted to this type of mistakes, they are crucial for our growth and success. Of course, we can learn from intentional and oops! mistakes as well, but when we make that step to the unknown and if we fail – – that is the place of personal EVOLUTION).


(Yaaay, the sequence continues!)

“To maintain the ability to admit and grow from our mistakes rather than let them defeat us represents best the inner strength of a people.”
Haki Madhubuti




“Most people are afraid of failure, and making mistakes. But the truth is, failure and mistakes are blessings in disguise that specifically show us what we need to do in order to grow and improve.”
Steve Gold

I love this one. Blessing in disguise… I imagine it as a smiling child with a mask and a cape, hiding until we realize what happened… 🙂
