If people want to design their life to be something different from your desired design, do not argue with them, just do your thing; to each his own. Who are we to tell someone how to life their life anyways?
Plus, if your dreaming of making a MASSIVE change on this planet, most people are not, so expect the backlash but no need to backlash back. That takes time and energy away from making your dreams a reality.
But you can also expect to attract like minded people in the long run if you keep at it. Also, action speaks louder than words; becoming successful is more persuasive than telling someone how to become successful without first achieving it.
It may prove difficult at times, but if it were easy, everyone would do it. Do what is challenging and exciting, it will reap the greatest rewards for your family, friends and yourself. Success breeds success.
