(1) First of all, when Rabbi Anava described the segulah, he mentioned that fulfilling the segulah (which is admittedly a very tall order) can bring about a huge miracle that year.
Not the day after Chanukah, or even the month after. Just some time that year.
In other words, the results may not be immediate.
For your sake, I hope they are. But it may not happen right away.
(2) Secondly, even if you fail while attempting this segulah (or fail several times throughout), perhaps you will:
- still see a big miracle just for the sincere attempt.
- Or maybe you'll see small miracles rather than huge ones.
- Or maybe (and admittedly disappointingly), you won't sense any result of your heroic inner actions, chas v'shalom.
But one Truth remains:
No good deed or good thought ever goes lost.
Whatever good you do brings you blessing in This World or The Next, and oftentimes in both.
You may not feel or see it, but it's there waiting for you.
Also, it goes on the Heavenly Scales toward the side of merit for Am Yisrael, which means that without even perceiving it, you make the entire world a better place.
