My take at this is: if you see (or sense) a true realisation of something great, then you see a goal (or at least something to aim for) ahead of you and will be ready to spend all the effort it takes to reach it. I don't believe in images that just happen to effortlessly fly into your camera and through the enlarger onto the paper.
