However many people will always have doubts about your path. They might judge it mistakenly silly or useless.
I like initiatives so much, because they allow me to use my personal and learnt ideas in practice. I feel inspired by many interesting ideas and activities and many of such activities brought me the results I have wished.
But as I once started those activities from stratch I have faced the scepticism of all my friends and other close people. I have always proved them that they were wrong in their judgement, but it seems like this fact doesn't matter, they continue to not trust my ideas until I show them the results.
That's why I don't talk anymore about my new ideas and goals until I have some concrete results. It seems like the result is the only thing that can convince people absolutely.
Not everybody is enough knowledgeable to understand if a certain idea is right or wrong, if it's successful or an useless path, and a bit assertiveness is added to their lack of knowledge in order to repress the enthusiasm of someone.
