How long can you persevere, doing something new, without the gratification of seeing results?
Take heart in the fact that there is always a lag between when you “do” some new procedure or adopt a new way of being, and when you “have” the fruits of your efforts. The lag is actually there to protect us. Imagine the problems that would arise if every thought that entered your mind immediately manifested!
Moreover, the lag is designed to test your resolve. And your faith. This is just one reason why using someone else’s scripting rarely produces the results that its author experiences. It’s why I’m leery of “shortcuts” and the “fake-it-till-you-make-it” crowd who think going through the motions will produce the necessary change of heart. That’s outside in thinking.
Instead, remain steadfast, holding every thought captive. It is through the inside-out process of renewing of your mind that authentic, lasting change manifests.
