Shoot your shot is a phrase similar to the "go for it" phrase, which is when you take matters into your own hands. It can be used to refer to finally standing up to a bully, talking to a crush, asking for a raise, etc.
The "shoot your shot" phrase involves gathering up the confidence to do something that you are normally too scared to do. The phrase comes from sports, like in basketball when you have an open shot at the basket, you have to take it.
