Have you ever wondered why people who hang out together have a similar thought pattern? This similarity in their way of thinking occurs because thoughts are a form of energy, and energy is infectious.
Therefore, when you share big ideas with a small-minded person, you’ll doubt them because this person will infect you with doubtful thoughts.
All of us have qualities such as fear, doubt, anxiety, and courage in us. These factors are mostly activated if you associate with people who intensify them. For instance, associating with brave people and big dreamers activates the confidence in you while hanging out with anxious people makes you an anxious individual. This effect that other people have on us explains why we are usually advised to share our ideas with big-minded people as they’ll reinforce the boldness in us.
Have you ever doubted a big idea after sharing it with a small-minded person? How did you feel after sharing your idea? It’s obvious you felt discouraged. Imagine telling such people your ideas every day. There are high chances they’ll reinforce the doubt in you and make you give up.
Therefore, the main reason we are told to keep our ideas to ourselves is that a large percentage of people don’t believe in big ideas. It’s better to keep your ideas to yourself than to tell small-minded individuals because they’ll drain your energy and make you lose faith in your ideas.
We are social beings and we’ll always be tempted to share our ideas. However, we must be cautious about who we share our ideas with.
That being said, avoid sharing your ideas with small-minded people. Instead, share them with those who will reinforce your faith in your ideas because they’ll make you have the confidence of turning your idea into reality
