If you want this to be the greatest year of your life then you must make a commitment to change the course of your life. Without commitment you will continue to experience cycles of frustration and failure. Do not just set goals. Make this the year that you create a game plan for success.
Whether the glitch is in the value or the glitch is in the goal, we have several techniques in NLP to reconcile the two. When your values and goals are in alignment, you'll no longer feel frustrated as you pursue what you desire.
