Speaking about new ideas to people who have got used to the status quo might be harmful sometimes. It is like being hit by a double-barreled gun. The person rejects your idea as if it is the stupidest thing in the world and on the other hand, deep in your heart, you gradually start losing faith in that idea. So, it is very important about being choosy about people you present your greatest and the best ideas to. But you also have the power to wake up such a person from his deep slumber in his own laughably little world and inspire greatness like the greatest leaders in history. Who knows, after many years, it might be that person who puts your idea into practice and not you? In history, it has almost always been the disciple who has garnered legions of followers for the ideas propagated by the teacher.
