Success is rarely immediate.
If you have ever attempted to grow things, you sow the seed, then you create the ideal conditions for that seed to germinate into a desired outcome. The Colchester wheat in the image took many months to reach the moment where it could be harvested after being sown. Nothing comes immediately, and the seed grows according to its own timing.
Sometimes the conditions are too hostile for a seed to germinate. Fellow blogger LEARN FROM NATURE wrote a post about Herman Melville, author of the classic Moby-Dick. The public at the time were indifferent to his work, and he failed to sell the first 3000 copies of the work; it was only after his death that people now appreciate the Moby-Dick for what it is.
Everything moves according to its own clock, thus to force things can have negative consequences. 200 years ago people had yet to discover that sickness was caused by germs; they still believed in the dark age idea that illness was caused by an imbalance of the humours. Ignaz Semmelweis in 1847 observed that if doctors washed their hands lives could be saved; for it was common practice for doctors to switch from dissecting corpses to treating living patients without washing their hands, thus creating high mortality rates. Semmelweis reduced mortality rates in his own clinic through handwashing, then tried to convince his fellow doctors to do the same. The medical community was indifferent to Semmelweis, who then over time became forceful in his efforts to change medical practice, upon which the medical community turned on him, locked him up in a lunatic asylum, where Semmelweis died from infected injuries after being beaten up by the guards. It was 50 years later before the medical profession were enlightened to change their practices.
