The toughest challenge for writers or anyone spreading an idea

Spreading ideas is hard. It doesn’t matter whether it is through text, audio or video, communicating an idea is hard. Because what you try to do is to put into the world your thoughts on a subject, and use the medium as a way to get people to understand your idea the way you do. And that’s hard.
But it gets particularly hard when you need feedback in order to learn and improve the way your idea is presented. And this is where it gets tricky, because: (1) You do not want to listen to non-believers—those who won’t buy your idea regardless the way you present it. But (2) You want to listen to those people who want to get your idea, but the way it’s presented doesn’t resonate with them. The tricky part is to understand the differences between the two.
Your job as a communicator of any kind is to understand this distinction, and focus on the feedback that will improve your writing (or whatever way you present your idea)—relentlessly ignoring the non-believers.
This is more difficult that it sounds. And I don’t get this right all the time. But, if one thing is for sure, is that I’m better at this than a year ago.
The only way to get better at this is through deliberate practice. And in case you hesitate, whether the feedback is good or bad, then go with your gut. That’s why we’d like your stuff in the first place.
