No matter what life is going to have ups and downs. There will be pains and pleasures.
All of the pain is a given.
The success and pleasures are up to you. These feelings are not given. You have to go out and take these. You have to make these happen. This is what it means to live a life with no regrets. Even if things do not work out you want to be able to say you gave it all you got. You went after your dreams. You didn’t make excuses.
You might as well fail doing something you love.
