They occur in our minds making up the forces that spur our decisions, and our decisions subsequently determine our actions.
Out of our thoughts flow the issues of life.
It is possible we think one thing and act another but it is not possible we act something without first having thought about it.

Our thoughts are so powerful that it determines a whole lot for us and even people around us.


The things we think or imagine command similar attention even before God as the things we ask.

“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!”

An 18th birthday party starts from the innate awareness of clocking age 18 biologically. And then it goes beyond awareness to thinking, “oh there could be a party”.
Thoughts of the party begin to play in our minds. We start to imagine what to wear, the kind of cake and design, food to be served at the party, venue for the party, how many friends to invite, etc. If this thought of a party is voiced out to people around us, they'll most likely agree to a celebration with us.

In short the party itself happens first in our imagination. Meaning that in our very own mind we can paint a picture of the things we desire.
Speaking out those things we picture to the right set of people makes it even better because we stand the chance of receiving help towards it becoming a reality.


The thought of a successful and splendid 18th birthday party was the basis for other good thoughts which generated some good feelings, and subsequently led to actions being taken and the actual celebration of an 18th birthday assuming it happened.

When we paint pictures in our minds, if they make us feel good our faces might break into a smile that spread from ear to ear even though we are yet to see those things materialize. If we feel the pictures we paint in our minds can’t be achieved due to some reasons, we can become unhappy, angry or start frowning. This is how powerful our thoughts can be, even determining our outlook most times.


When our thoughts are good, half of the problem is solved. Then when we act accordingly the problem is altogether solved. Acting accordingly may involve lots of other thought-processes and actions which we shall discuss in another post.
It is very important as individuals that we take charge of the things we think about. This leads me to asking:

Do you know your thoughts?

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

It is possible that you and I know our thoughts, master it and control what we think as it determines a whole lot about our life. In the mastery of our thoughts we keep our heart healthy. A healthy heart means a healthy life.

“Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts”

How do we keep our heart healthy?

“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.”

When our thoughts are based on the adjectives listed above, we become beautiful and living becomes better.
When we have good thoughts, we constantly exude positivity which makes us really attractive.


I believe Olajumoke Orisaguna, the famous bread seller had tons of positive thoughts on her mind before and on the day her face caught TY Bello's attention. Positive thoughts and desire that spurred her on daily despite the hard knocks of life.
Half her problems were solved already in her mind that way. And then just someday the power of her thoughts became so strong and overwhelming that someone noticed it.

Now is the time to start positive thinking, imagination, dreaming and aspirations.

Yes you can be positive.
