    lose out on the real you

    If "to lose out on something" mean "to be unsuccessful in getting something", what is the function of "out" in it? Does "out" mean "completely"? Is it for emphasis? Is "lost out on something" different from 'lose on something"?

    34)No one else can experience the way your heart feels about things. No one can see through the lens you use to see life quite the same as you do. Accept this individuality. Honor and praise it, too. Do not be quick to compromise it. In your desire to fit in or make others happy, you may be tempted to pretend to be someone you are not. You may even pretend to believe things you donít really believe, or act in ways that are out of character with who you really are. When you do this, you lose out on the real you. The world loses out on you, too. Strive to be a healthy, happy and enlightened person― and then, taking your place alongside your fellow travelers, offer your self to the waiting world.

    Bear in mind that this is first-order psychobabble, and the guy who's after your money doesn't care too much about whether it means anything.
