You are probably saying to yourself, "What the heck is he asking? Do I live in the wake?".
First, let me explain to you what a wake is (if you don’t already know). When you ride in a boat and you look behind you, there is a wake. This is the track of waves left by your boat.
Now that you are clear as to which definition of "wake" I am talking about; I ask you again. Do you live in the wake?
Still unclear? Let me clear this up. Are you living your life in the past? Are you focusing on the things in your life that didn’t happen? Are you saying to yourself, "If it hasn’t happened before, it won’t happen now."?
My suggestion to you is to STOP! Stop looking at missed opportunities…at failures…at hopes and dreams of the past that haven’t come true.
START living in the present. Live in the NOW. Where you are today is a direct result of everything that has happened in the past. If you’re not happy with where you are, then it is time to make a change and STOP looking back and START looking forward.
Emotional Magnetism theory says that I bring into to my life which I give my emotional energy to. If you are giving your emotional energy to things that happened in the past, they are bound to be repeated. Focus on what it is you truly desire and give that your emotional energy.
Live in the present. Dream about the future. Your dreams will then become your present.
