Are You the Visionary in Your Relationship?
Show Notes

"If I'm such a visionary about relationship, and my partner doesn't think that way, isn't that a problem?" This is a question I have heard many times and one I asked myself in my relationship, too.  It’s a big responsibility and can feel like a burden. But what I have come to see is that I am someone who has been gifted with the opportunity to hold vision. So in this episode, I'm going to share with you what I've learned about being a visionary in love. I'm going to answer some of those key questions that visionaries often ask me, and I'm going to call you up, I'm going to invite you into courage and into action in the role of the visionary. 

In this episode, we’ll discuss:

  • What a visionary is and what our role is in our relationships
  • Why you don’t have to worry if you feel like you’re always two steps ahead of your partner in visioning your relationship
  • The difference between “values” and “approach” and why it matters
  • Recognizing the higher desire partner in aspects of your relationship
  • How to pursue your “too big” vision without resenting (or creating resentment from) your partner

And more.  

Being the visionary means that we take 100% responsibility for becoming and living from the qualities within ourselves that will bring about that vision.”
