We all need a pick me up from time to time. And what would be better than some of the most inspirational quotes on this beautiful blue planet of ours? There’s something about inspirational and wise quotes that gets your mind churning and thinking about the positive instead of the negative.

I’ve collected 11 highly inspirational quotes below that will supercharge your day with positivity if you spend some time contemplating each and how each quote relates to your life.

Even though we all live completely unique lives, there still something about quotes that speak to all of us.

With all that said let’s dive right in, shall we?

1. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain

We will always be afraid of doing new things and having new experiences, but it isn’t until we do what we most fear that we truly come alive. Look back into your life when you faced and overcame your fears and did something you were scared of.

It felt amazing, didn’t it?

2. “If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
– Vincent van Gogh

Never let yourself or anyone else say that you cannot do something. You alone determine the limitations that you set upon yourself.

If you want to do something, just do it. Get rid of negative friends and destroy your inner critic that tells you that you cannot do something. You are a genius, you can do anything you want to do.

3. “Fall seven times, stand up eight!”
– Japanese Proverb

Life is about failing and learning from your mistakes. If you want a truly happy and successful life, you have to be willing to stand up and never give up. Truly successful people are positive and they know that each failure gets them closer to their goals.

Failures are nothing but mere stepping stones to success.
