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.

- John Maxwell in his book, Thinking for a Change, explains eleven thinking skills. Let’s take a look at the first skill.
