YOU CAN'T DO THAT! WE ALREADY TRIED!

If someone say's "YOU CAN'T", they're showing you their limits, not yours!

Jack hears it regularly, "...we already tried that, it doesn't work'.

What a load of nonsense! 

You may well have tried and failed miserably but that doesn't mean the next person will follow suit. If a club member want's to give something a go, don't tell them that it has already been tried, give them a shot, what have you got to lose. At the end of the day, if you try nothing then you will be left with what you started with ..... NOTHING!

Jack is aware of new members that come along, full of fresh ideas and enthusiasm, only to be crushed by the self-righteous attitude of those who have tried and failed before them. 

Perhaps those before them are scared that someone may show them how it's done?

What do you think?

  2. Yes, a lot of people are so negative but more than that, they are utterly selfish! They will not contribute and put in their input. They are very good at criticising though!
