So what?

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Most of our days are spent wasted, dreaming, hoping, wishing...never actually doing. We spend most of our days regretting not putting ourselves out there, trying something new, pushing ourselves, and for what? What are we losing by not simply 'going for it'? Everything. And what can we gain by just simply 'going for it'? Everything.

So the answer is simple. Stop living life in fear, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of not being acceptable, applauded, appreciated. What you did was bigger and better than what half the people are doing today, you actually did something, you actually got out there. So you fell down, so you didn't win, or you didn't come 1st, or 2nd, or 3rd, you came last...who cares? So you fail once, doesn't mean you're going to fail every time. It's through our triumphs and our failures that we learn the most about ourselves. It takes a big man to win, but it also takes a big man to lose.

"If you are not big enough to are too small to win."

So what if you fail? What if you don't win? What if you fall flat on your face? So what? Does it define you? Absolutely not. 

This is a lesson, a test of who you are and what you are capable of. The fact that you stepped foot into something different, something challenging, something new, something you wanted to go an accomplishment in itself. What you did is great and powerful. You should be proud, holding your head up high. 

Life is about learning. It is about winning and about failing. It's about understanding and experiences.

So what? What do you really have to lose?

Absolutely nothing.
