“Life is about makin’ mistakes. It’s also about tryin’ to be great. Do not let your failure scare you away. I know you’re fed up, you fall, keep your head up.
-Machine Gun Kelly
What this artist is telling us is, not to let failure stop you from trying to achieve your goals. Everyone has failed… Even Tom Brady and Lionel Messi!
