Stop the waiting Game

June 13, 2022IanUncategorizedComments Off on Stop the waiting Game

Here is a lovely story from a recent Lightning Process graduate ZOE. She was fortunate that she knew someone who had taken the Lightning Process so decided not to play the waiting game with her Post-Covid Fatigue / Long Covid.

I meet people who wait years after getting a virus for the fatigue to go. Waiting. Resting. Giving it time.

So while some continue to “rest & give it time”  Zoe is celebrating and hiking in the Grampians. 

Time to stop the ‘Waiting Game’
People who recover get sick of the waiting game. They realise that “more rest and more time” is getting them nowhere. They realise no-one is going to fix them. There is no drug, no medical breakthrough just around the corner, no magic pill or supplement. There is no biomarker or test that will explain it all. 

At some point on people’s road to recovery it clicks. Or should I say – their road to recovery starts when it clicks. 

As the saying goes “If it’s going to be – it’s up to me”.

It can take a while to get to that point. It’s tempting to wait. Talk of new breakthroughs is alluring. Maybe run a few more tests just in case. Articles about a new virus, DNA mutations, a drug being researched is enticing. 

So some wait. 

But the reality is that there are already things that work. They just take work. 

The thing that recovery stories have in common is they took deliberate action. 

It is the patient-driven active approaches to change that are associated with better long-term outcomes. 

The Lightning Process takes work but shows that with KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & SUPPORT, change is possible and can be easier & faster than you might expect.

Sometimes the road to recovery is just waiting on a decision. The decision to stop waiting.
