With so many great inspirational quotes, it was challenging to limit this to only 25 but we picked some of our favorites.

If you are looking for specific inspirational quotes that are funny or for improving low self-esteem or feeling never good enough or letting go or perhaps on love, we got you covered.

Here are 25 inspirational quotes that can change your life for the better:

1. “People will try to label you not good enough, too slow, too old, too many mistakes. You can’t stop negative comments or prevent negative labels, but you can choose to not let them hold you back." — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Go for your dreams because at the end of the day, if it makes you happy then no matter what anyone says or thinks, you won’t care anyway. Never mind what others will think.

 

2. “The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” — Marcus Aurelius

Guard your thoughts carefully. Good thoughts bear good fruit; bad thoughts bear bad fruit. Think something positive the moment you wake up in the morning.

 

3. “Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things. Don’t get stressed over what you can’t control.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Everyday, you have a choice. Everything you do is by choice. Start making better choices and get control of your life. If things didn’t go as planned, let it go. What will be, will be.

 

4. “Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Be kind to yourself. Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!

 

5. “One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Stop overthinking. The more you try to control something, the more it controls you. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work. Live life.

 

6. “Always know how valuable and uniquely beautiful you are.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

You are one of a kind. Be authentic. Have a daily practice of letting go of what you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.

 

7. “Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.” — Emily Guay

Stop yourself from stopping yourself. Don’t let your own worst enemy live in between your ears. Believe in yourself.

 

8. “Live life to the fullest and focus on the positive.” — Joyce Meyer

Life only happens once, so live the most of it. Life is too short to worry about stupid things. Have fun and don’t let people bring you down.

 

9. “You have to get up every morning and tell yourself I can do this.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

You may not have the control in every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it. Stay positive!

 

10. “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

If everyone gave up when it is hard, no one would become successful. It’s inevitable that you’re going to face hard times. Are you going to let these hard times make you or break you?
 

11. “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

If you don’t go after what you want, you will never have it. Live life to the fullest.

 

12. “Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” — Brian Tracy

Maintain an attitude of gratitude. No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.

 

13. “Positive thinking is the secret to every great success story.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

If you wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.

 

14. Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Forgiveness is a process. A choice you have to make over and over, every day until you’re free of hurt.

 

15. “Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” — Christian Larson

That’s what it’s all about. Believing in yourself and going for your dreams and goals. Stop wondering if you’re good enough. Know that you are!

 

16. “Stop trying to fix yourself, you’re not broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.” — Steve Maraboli

 

Work on loving yourself. Love the person you see in the mirror who has been through a lot but still standing and willing to fight.

 

17. “Be strong to let go and patient enough for what you deserve.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

To be honest, letting go of people or things is not easy. But once you let things go, happiness finds you and that’s a way of telling yourself you did the right thing.

 

18. “There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

No one is perfect and we can always learn something new. It’s about effort. There are tons of ways to give effort even if you don’t know what to do but doing nothing or giving up is not a good decision to make.

 

19“In life, nobody and nothing will help you until you start helping yourself.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Take care of yourself. You must tell yourself that no matter how hard it is, or how had it gets, you’re going to make it. Never rely your happiness on someone.
 

20. “Having a positive mindset is one of the most powerful life strategies of living a happier life.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

You spent your whole life developing a negative mindset. It might be a good idea to invest some time in creating a positive one.

 

21. “You can decide to “do happy”. Happiness is a decision for everyone anyway.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Happiness is not a byproduct of something outside of you. Happiness should start within you

 

22. “[Forty percent] of your happiness is controlled by your thoughts, actions, and behaviors. [Ten percent] by your circumstances. [Fifty percent] is genetically determined.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Most people are searching for happiness outside of themselves. I tell you, that’s a mistake. Happiness is something you are, and it comes from within you.

 

23. “We can train ourselves to be happy.” — Lisa Lieberman-Wang

Live life one day at a time. Choose to be happy every single day and things will change. Being happy never goes out of style.

 

24. “A lady’s imagination is very rapid, it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” — Jane Austen

Women can let their mind wander into a million places in a matter of a minute.

 

25. “No matter how you look like or think you look like, you’re special and loved and perfect just the way you are.” —  Ariel Winter

You’re already F.A.B. — fabulous, awesome, and beautiful!

 

Feeling like you are never good enough can be a thing of the past. Always remember and never forget that you are worthy and deserving of great things just because you are you.

There is nothing you need to do or say to be good enough. Just being, is enough!
