    I think never trying at all is worse than failing. Failure can teach us lessons, help us grow and mature but never trying leaves us with nothing. Most of the successful people in the world have failed at least once before they became really successful.

    Never trying is much worse than failing.

    Never Trying.

  • Never trying is WORSE!

    Because if you think about it, you could easily try something new and fail at it right away, but failing is what helps you learn! Failing helps you figure out a way to correct the mistake! Because if we never failed at some point in our lives, obviously everything we've done is too easy for us! And there's really nothing fun about something being way too easy for us!

    Think of this as a video game. If you fail at a certain level a lot of times, that's okay, because as you figure out more and more ways to edit what you're doing wrong, you might just beat that level!

    But if you never try to beat that level, then when you invite a friend over to play the same game and you're hopelessly failing to pass that level, you'll be embarrassed!

    If you never try, you'll never know. But if you fail, at least you'll have some strength to overcome your past mistakes!

    Bottom Line: If you don't try, you'll fail automatically. But if you try and fail, you'll eventually learn to get good at it if you keep at it.

    Never trying is way worse , failing means that you tried and this is a great pleasure bu don' be stupid when trying because you have also to be as away as possible from failing

    There is no 'worse' since the only person really judging us is ourselves. However, from a results perspective, never trying will give you zero results. Trying and failing will give you zero results, but also some life experience. And you can only succeed at something if you do in fact try, so if you are looking for success, then trying is the only option.

    Never trying.

    Trying and failing is better than failing to try.

    It depends on the situation; for example, savings a person's life is worth trying even with a high chance of failure while trying to cook a thanksgiving dinner within your love one's parents house last minute (while having no sense of culinary knowledge) using everything in the house would be worse to fail at an is not worth trying.

    Source(s): When it comes to limited time and resources, sometimes it is better to not waste anyone's time or money so don't even think about trying unless the loss is too great to consider.
