Which of These Lil Skies Quotes Has Pushed You to Take Risks in Order to Achieve Success?

Despite growing up in such an unusual hip-hop environment, Lil Skies has garnered a sizable SoundCloud and YouTube followers. He has been touring the United States to promote his work and to serve as an opening act for well-known rappers such as Wiz Khalifa, Lil Uzi, and many more.

He’s also famous for his face tattoos. He took a risk by getting tattoos, knowing that he would not be hired for any job he applied for. His tattoos, he claims, reflect his real personality and his work.

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
