One of the problems with human beings is that they do not think or at least think  as they should. A man is usually made up of what he thinks himself to be and our external state of being is a reflection of our internal state of mind.     


There is way to think that brings one success. If we have’nt become succesful it is possibly we have’nt thought in the way that would bring the success we are looking for.  A man’s state is determined by how succesfuly and effectively he thinks. How he thinks , what he thinks about and when he thinks about them.


Understanding is essential to success in life. The difference between those that are succesful and those that are not lies within their ability or inabilty to think about and understand certain things more than those who do not and putting into practice what they do. The rich, the wealthy and the successful understand and apply a lot of principles which the poor who do not.


Those that fail to think are as guilty as the servant that hid his master’s talent in the Biblical parable Jesus shared in the NewTestament of the Holy Bible, the official document of the Christian faith. Those that are purpose conscious understand that nothing happens by accident. God in creating the human being has a reason for implanting the heart, the mind, the spirit, the soul and the brain in man.


A look at the earth we live in shows there is coordination of the universe in harmony and uniformity. Weather, climate , sunshine and several others are working together to suit the goal, objective and purpose of God for creating them. This shows our Creator as a planning, organising and thinking God.The earth for instance is a fulfilment of the mental plan of God, a product of His effective thinking. God after creating the earth was satisfied. His examination (a product of His thinking)of His creative work brought Him satisfaction and delight.


Thinking is vital to self discovery, realisation, vision, goal setting, planning, self motivation, understanding, self examination and appraisal which are all relevant stops on the way to success.

For us to succeed in life we have to do something about how we think, when we think and what we think about. We need to think well,think enough,think purposefully and think right.

Have a blessed and prosperous year but do think about it!!!
