Today, I want to talk to you about the concept of lag time.
A lot of times, we think success should turn up faster than it does. We try to rush the universe into giving us what we want!
Here’s the thing: when you PLANT a SEED, you must water it!
You must FERTILIZE!
You must WAIT for the seed to grow roots before it grows into a TREE!
A first time farmer doesn’t always KNOW how to plant a tree. He has to try and try again before he gets it right! He is only able to see the outcome of his hard work once the harvest comes.
In today’s society, we are so used to everything happening in an instant.
We expect everything to turn up FASTER than it SHOULD.
Here’s what you need to understand: There is NO SUCH THING as OVERNIGHT SUCCESS!
It doesn’t happen right away. In fact, YOU WILL FAIL in your first attempt to plant a tree!
So, what do YOU need in order to GROW and reach your FULL POTENTIAL?
- You must be planted in an area where there are OTHER TREES as HIGH as YOU!
- You must give it TIME.
- Understand the UNIVERSE is a MIRROR
- Understand there are BAD SEASONS and BAD HARVESTS
Here’s the thing about lag time. You might want to start something, and then there will be a GAP.
What is this gap?
This is the time when your idea will be fertilized and watered until it grows roots. It needs a FIRM foundation before it can bear fruit!
There is a lag time before you DO IT and before you REAP the REWARDS!
Understanding this concept will allow you to RELAX a little bit. There’s nothing more you can do than what you’re doing right now!
Doing the right actions will allow you to become successful, but will not give you instantaneous rewards! You have to WORK HARD and WAIT IT OUT!
So today, relax. There is a lag time in your industry, relationship, or business. Be patient, because success will come.
