The purpose of life is to create and the purpose of your relationship is to co-create. ~The Freemans
As relationship coaches, my husband and I have people telling us that we are very lucky to be so in-sync with each other and can have endless conversations even after being together for 16 years (married for 9). We were not always this way, we have had our times of disconnect, misunderstandings, disagreements and high volume fights. What changed for us was starting to view our relationship as a partnership. A partnership is simply a “relationship created with intention or purpose with shared risk and profit”. Therefore, if we wanted to have a successful partnership we needed a common vision. A cohesive vision, which is authentic to us, that aligns our values and actions has helped shape our relationship for what it is today and into the future.
You have heard of stories of companies which have gone on to completely reinvent themselves by simply creating a vision (or mission) statement. A Couple’s Vision StatementSM can do the same thing for your relationship.
What is a vision statement?
A vision statement is not a goal but rather a crystal clear picture of how you want to experience life on a daily basis with your spouse. A clear couple’s vision will bring together each individual’s unique dreams, ideas and desires to synchronize into one cohesive statement/picture. A vision will lend clarity and inspiration to your relationship, which is missing in setting goals or New Year resolutions.
“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.”– Oprah Winfrey
How a Couple’s Vision StatementSM can change your relationship for the better?
Shared Meaning: Having a common purpose brings you together as a team and reminds you to focus on the needs of your relationship rather than individual needs.
Transparency: A vision helps you to be honest and vulnerable with each other especially when times are tough. It helps establish more aligned actions and habits between you and your partner.
Command: Your vision acts as a filter or perspective from which you will make all your decisions. It will take the guessing game out of the equation and enable you to be in control of what you say “yes” or “no” to.
Alignment: It will give you relief from stress, anxiety and frustration by helping you stay in integrity with how you want to feel mentally, physically and financially.
Intimacy: Sharing a common purpose brings synergy between you and your partner. You understand that you were brought together for a bigger purpose. This creates a deeper emotional connection and ignites your passion for each other.
“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
– Helen Keller
