Vision is a mental image/picture of what the future could be/would look like. Permit me to tell you this, visionaries are more insightful/foresighted than ambitionaries. How do I mean? o.k. listen up, a visionary sees the future with an eye like that of an eagle. Whereas, an ambitionary only sees the present.
