There was a consensus that it is better to try, and keep trying, at your endeavor then to never give it a go. Besides, as speakers, all of our ‘failures’ make great speeches!

Perhaps the positive spin on it, and where we should focus our attention, is that there is no such thing as failure, just feedback. I heard this positive spin on failure and it resonated with me.
