    In any situation, it is better to try and fail than not to try at all. It can be hard for a man ( because of the man ego) to try a task and fail as he would really feel let down by himself

    From my personal experience as it relates to 'trying' I have come to understand that the more I tried, the more I failed.  Therefore, I have moved to a higher state of awareness within myself where my actions are now guided by more intuition rather than the ego minded way of trying...

    To find the answer to this you might have asked great inventors such as Tesla, Leonardo da Vinci, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Robert Fulton and dozens of other wonderful inventors in this country and around the world. A challenge or a task requiring a man's attempts in conquering or in achieving a goal, are always well worth attempting. Failures are just a art of the process and because you fail once or twice at a thing, does not mean that you should give up. Keep on trying.

    Most definitely, yes. Even if failure is made evident to everybody, at least you know in your own mind that you put forth your due diligence and appropriate effort toward a successful outcome

    "I have not failed, I have successfully found a way that does not work"
    If you don't try you don't fail
    But if you don't try you've failed.
    I believe that not trying is worse than failing. If you don't try, you'll never know.

    I like Wayne Gretzky's quote that kripkrip420 used. It is very true.

    Also: ''I have not failed. I've just found 10000 ways that won't work'' - Thomas Edison

    Probably yes, you can try and try for the better, if you do not try at all you are always a loser

    Not trying is just, in my opinion anyway, inaction. Inaction will not produce results that most people really want as people very often want the opposite of those inaction results. Therefore, go out and just do it!

    And thinking of it as more of an action-item is better than thinking of it as just plain "try". For example, will you ever succeed if all you do is "try" to write a hub? No! You have to actually take action and do it!

    As another completely different example, I was good at math when in elementary and middle school until it came time to learn about geometry. I also always received A's and B's for everything. Then, there was the day I had to take a geometry test. I failed it, but I gave it my best and felt very good about knowing I did my best. That was actually a really good thing for me to experience because I learned how to ask for help. I went on to after school help and successfully passed all future geometry classes.

    So, in a nutshell, it is always best to go out and do because even a perceived failure is just another bump in the road that allows for a learning opportunity!

    A big part of the battle is deciding what is worth trying over and over again. My dissenting views can be found here:

    It is better to fail while trying, than to fail trying.

    Well, "worse" is a bit judgmental, yes?

    If there is a commitment or need to accomplish a certain task, and someone shirks, then the failure to try is certainly worse than failure.

    On the other hand, choosing not to attempt certain *other* tasks may not only not be "worse," it may be the only intelligent choice!

    As usual, much wisdom lies in knowing the difference. . .

    I do believe that because if you do not try, you will never find success.  Failing teaches you valuable lessons to carry one with you for when you get a chance at another go around.
