Podcast No. 23: Co-Creator with Vision Most of us have a vision of one form or another. Whether it's career goals, the type of family we'd like to have, where we want to live, or any number of things, we have visions of how we would like things to be. Often our visions take unexpected twists and turns, which can lead to frustration and disappointment; even more so if we try to "power through" and "make" our vision happen.

Becoming a "co-creator with your vision" provides an opportunity to relax and realize that even at this very moment, your vision is where it is meant to be.
