You may have heard terms such as “power couple” and “couple goals” being thrown about in today’s dating world. Every loved up pair aspires to be that couple that all of their nearest and dearest look at with sheer admiration whilst secretly envying them.
While every relationship is sure to have its ups and downs, what makes a couple strong is fighting for their love to survive every trial and tribulation that comes their way. This is one of the things that can create a solid foundation of commitment and trust, and make the ultimate power couple that can conquer anything together.
What is a Power Couple?
Believe it or not, anyone can be a power couple. That’s right even you guys that are lazily slumped on the sofa together in your jim-jams reading through this blog. It’s not just the Jay-Z and Beyonce’s or the Kimye’s of the world anymore. Any regular Tom, Dick, Harry, or Sally can be the ultimate power couple.
All you both need is the push and the desire to be the best you can be individually so that you can be the greatest for one another and achieve power couple status. Does that sound too difficult and intimidating? Don’t worry, we’ve got some further, digestible tips that make becoming the ultimate power couple sound a lot more achievable!
How to be a Power Couple
Becoming a power couple doesn’t mean you need to be rich and famous. You’re not obliged to make power ballads about your significant other, in which she makes candid appearances in your music videos (yes, we see you and love you John Legend and Chrissy Teigen).
A power couple is all about using your strengths to encourage and push one another into becoming the best version of yourselves and reaching a united end goal that you both desire. Whether that be a joint venture or project, an empowering career move, or starting a family together. Whatever you both want to achieve and succeed in in life, you’re doing it together in the best way possible.
1. Have a United Vision
This all starts with having a unified vision of what you both want for your future. You and your partner need to be on the same page and wavelength when it comes to your joint vision and mission in life.
The best way to do this is to have these discussions and get clarity on this early on in your relationship. You need to be open in hearing where your partner wants to go and what direction they wish to take, as well as knowing where you want to be in a few years’ time as well.
You may be on different wavelengths when it comes to the day-to-day, but make lists and vision boards for your united goals and desired achievements. Work together to figure out how you can compromise and adapt to help each other reach your individual and collective goals.
Implementing this power of united vision and goal setting is one of the best ways to start your journey as an ultimate power couple, and getting the support you each need from one another to grow into this mighty force.
2. Communicate, communicate, communicate
As we all know, communication is key in any healthy and successful relationship. Communication gives couples the opportunity to understand one another on a better and deeper level. The more you understand one another, the easier it is to fall deeper in love with each other.
Communication really helps to understand your partner’s vision and how to support each other and come on board together. Effective communication builds trust and maintains reassurance for your partner, especially if they are feeling uncertain or unclear about your unified journey.
As a couple, understanding each other better through communication builds up the foundations for better support systems in a relationship. Solid support from a partner creates breakthroughs and allows you to honour your partner in achieving what you have both envisioned for your future together.
Showing belief and faith in your partner helps them reach their full potential and exceed both of your expectations. It’s crucial to communicate both the good and the bad, in a caring and constructive way, and witness the difference it makes in your relationship and the power it gives you as a couple.
3. Make it a priority
In order to be an ultimate power couple, it’s important to prioritise your relationship and give it 100% of your effort. This will only strengthen your connection and grow the love between you both.
In a world full of distractions and high-pressured situations, it can be easy to get lost in social media, work deadlines, and other personal commitments. All these things may end up pushing your romantic relationship down the list, and make your partner feel neglected and forgotten.
That’s why it is important to prioritise your relationship and put every effort into making it the best it can be. Achieving ultimate power couple status doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time and commitment, to both achieve it and maintain it.
It can be as little as organising a regular date night where you set time apart for you both to catch up and spend time together, or acknowledging and celebrating each other’s achievements when the opportunity arises.
These may sound like very simple things to do, but they can make all the difference to your dynamic and relationship. Reaching the ultimate power couple position isn’t as hard as it seems and is well worth the reward.
