Video Presentation: Todd Mullins, Lead Pastor and Shaun Blakeney, Student Ministry Pastor, Christ Fellowship, Florida

Becoming a good thinker isn’t necessarily complicated, but it does require discipline. Like most disci­plines, it can be cultivated and refined. Here is a suggested process for discovering and developing good thoughts that will impact your future.

1.  Find a place to think your thoughts.

2.  Find a place to evaluate your thoughts.

3.  Find a place to stretch your thoughts by sharing them with other good thinkers.

4.  Find a place to put your thoughts into action.

It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. It doesn’t matter if you are educated or uneducated. It doesn’t mat­ter if you are the picture of health or suffer from multiple disabilities. No matter what your circumstances, you can learn to be a good thinker. The only requirement is to be willing to engage in the process every day.



  • Do you have a special thinking place? Do you spend regular time there? If not, where could your thinking place be?
  • John Maxwell in his book, Thinking for a Change, explains eleven thinking skills. Let’s take a look at the first skill.
