A Shared Vision: 100 Conversations for Couples to Co-Create the Life of Their Dreams
Book #4 was inspired by singles who were dating and want to choose a partner aligned with their vision, values and goals. Often during dating, people are on their best behavior and they try to do everything they can to please their potential mate and not to rock the boat. Making a good first impression is important but in the end, you will be spending your life with someone so you need to be authentic! We wonder why 50% of marriages end in divorce and a third of the couples that remain married are unhappy. This is because people are not honestly communicating and working together on consciously creating their relationship.
This book is a guide for singles who are looking for their match and thinking about getting engaged. It addresses 100 topics of conversation, allowing couples to really get to know each other and to learn to work through their differences and arrive at a shared vision of their ideal life together.
This 100 conversation guide in 20 life areas helps couples co-create the relationship of their dreams! Often one partner dreads talking because heavy handed monologues can turn to blaming, shaming, debating or complaining.
‘A Shared Vision’ facilitates fun, inspirational exchanges between couples, giving these conversations a positive context. Partners can share important issues, problem-solve and create shared solutions to invent a life worth living, together. It is for couples thinking about that ‘next step,’ who want to create a solid foundation of knowing each other first and getting on the same page.
It‘s also for married couples who’ve lost their passion and want to re-invent the life of their dreams together, infusing their relationship with more synergy and direction.
This a workbook where each person has space to write and record their dreams and desires. You can return to it together years later and revise what you wrote. At the end of the book, there is an exercise to create a collage or vision that represents what your life will be like together in the future. you can hang it above your bed to inspire you.
