Where do these visions come from? I think the answer to this is from somewhere deep within our life experiences.
For the MBE, it may have been the experience of watching a family member struggle and perhaps succeed in their own businesses.
For a corporate representative it could just as easily come from childhood experiences as from academic training. I wonder if you were to close your eyes for 30 seconds, breathe deeply and ask yourself what is my vision now: What would you see?
