DCL 4.1 Instruction | Understand the Value of Good Thinking

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

In his book, Thinking for a Change, John C. Maxwell says, “If you are willing to change your thinking, you can change your feelings. If you change your feelings, you can change your actions. And changing your ac­tions – based on good thinking – can change your life.” He suggests several reasons why good thinking is so valuable:

1.  Good thinking creates the foundation for good results.

2.  Good thinking increases your potential.

3.  Good thinking produces more good thinking if you make it a habit.

Achieving your potential as a leader comes from making progress, and progress is often just one good idea away. Thinking is about creating a never-ending army of ideas capable of achieving almost anything. A famous playwright once said, “An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an invasion of ideas.”
