Question Failed Step 1, retaking test

I took step 1 in 2010 but failed in that.............but due to some issues I couldn't retake the test. But I am planning to take it now.
But would it be stupid for me or should i go ahead, because 1 time failure and that too for IMG would mean a lot.
Please advise.

Not trying to discourage, but it is a very big red flag (IMG is another big one - I know that as I am IMG as well)
