He strongly wanted separation from England, prompting him to be the leading voice in the elimination of the Stamp Act. Samuel Adams also had a vision, enabling him to visualize the solution. He saw what he wanted and set out to accomplish it. These were important strategies because they allowed him to be strong with determination and motivation. 2.
