Don’t stress over past mistakes because there’s nothing you can do to change them. Focus on your present and create your future today.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

I’m stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because I have known sadness.

At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.

View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’

The only mistake in life is the lesson not learned.

Forget past mistakes and forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do now and do it.

Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you.

I’d rather have a life full of mistakes than a heart full of regret.

Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places.

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.

Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s.

Don’t let the past hold you back; you’re missing the good stuff.

If you learn from a loss you have not lost.

A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.

Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
