In the end, you are more likely to regret the things you didn’t do, rather than the things you did do.
The thing with taking chances is you usually get a second shot at making things rights.
If you fail, you can fail up and use that as a springboard to better things.
Draw on the experience to grow and learn something about your self and the world around you
And the lesson isn’t always learning about things you want or need
It’s sometimes learning about the things you don’t
Where not to go
What not to do
Experience, (trial and error) is amongst one the most effective ways to learn
The skill then is having the capacity to reflect, understand and learn from your experience
To transform knowing into understanding.
Regret is a horrible thing to live with, there’s no point to it
But when it’s all said and done, the one thing you don’t want to regret is not trying
The effort you didn’t make
That conversation you never had
The risk you didn't take
Because at that point, there are no more second chances.
So I suggest you make the most out of the time and talents you have now
Knowing full well that if you screw up or you just happen to fall short, you still (now) have the opportunity to go again and make up for lost time (or even money).
