Try, try again.
Give it the old college try.
Do only, there is no try. (Yoda)
The word try has been given a negative connotation. If you ask someone if they are coming to an event and they answer "I'll try," you can be assured they're going to be conspicuously absent. But is there really anything wrong with trying?
Real trying does mean to put in the effort to attempt to accomplish something. Flippant trying is a mere pipe dream with no action.
I have many things in my life that I'm trying to succeed in. There are no guarantees, but I will continue to try, and do.
Trying something also means to put it to the test. As I continue to try, I will put myself to the test. Hopefully, I'll pass with flying colors.
