You Don’t Attract What You Want, You Attract What You Are

By Nicole | May 11, 2017

If you are anything like me, you have done more than a couple of goal setting exercises only to end up in the exact same spot as you were before. Frustrating! It wasn’t from a lack of effort, but something didn’t click, and while it may not have been an epic failure, it wasn’t exactly…
