Latin experts, how do you say "Success or failure" in latin?

Latin is suuuuuch a complex language and I'm having trouble finding the correct translation. Dictionaries are giving me contradicting answers. I want to buy a wristband with a cool engraving on it like "Success or failure (in latin). Non est medium. Noli umquam dedere".

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question :)

    Aut successus aut spes destituta. Locus medius non est. Noli umquam dedere.

    Either success or forsaken hope. There is no middle ground. Never surrender.

    Latin did not have a single word equating to 'failure' as the opposite to success. The thought was expressed by a verb or participle phrase.
