We at times discuss and refer to someone and say that a colleague or friend is a “good thinker,” but this kind of statements are subjective and means something different to everyone. Everyone interpretate or understand this differently like for one it may having a high IQ, while someone else it may mean knowing a bunch of trivia or being able to figure out whodunit when reading a mystery novel. I believe that good thinking isn’t just one thing. It consists of several specific thinking skills. Becoming a good thinker means developing those skills to the best of your ability.
It has no relevance whether you belongs to a rich father or poor father. It also has no relevance if you have gone through some tough things in life or had an easy ride so far. It has no reference if you are a highly educated Doctoral passed or an under graduate or matrix passed. It does no matter what your family upbringing has been and how your circumstances has been. You can learn to be a good thinker by engaging yourself into a process of practicing positive thinking every day. It’s a process of consciously engaging with yourself in thinking process systematically every day.
“A visionary personality is like a great work of art. Think of a masterpiece designed buildings built in history like Notre Dame, Paris or Taj Mahal in Agra. Remind yourself a great and enduring book ever written like “Invisible man” or “A passage of India” or Shakespeare’s Henry V. Think of a great musical composition like “Symphony no.9” or “The four seasons”. You will not be able to point to any one single item that makes the whole thing work, It is the entire work i.e. each piece of the work when put together it made it great i.e all the pieces working together to create an overall effect—that leads to enduring greatness
Great thinking habit is of similar creation where one puts all the beautiful pieces together to create a masterpiece for life. With developing a habit of conscious thinking you become the kind of person who can achieve great things in life and also become happy i.e. stress free success.

Ø Big-Picture Thinking
Ø Questioning the Popular Thinking

As you better understand each piece in deeper sense you start creating a masterpiece within yourself. There is nothing which impossible, there is a systematic which needs to be learn and practiced. This is called sculpturing our own future by developing these pieces one by one and putting them together.
