Learning how to think in Portuguese is a big challenge for a lot of people. It’s not something that’s going to happen overnight, but it will happen if you put in consistent effort towards it.
Here’s a video with a quick tip about the approach you should take to learning how to think in Portuguese.

You have all sorts of assumptions and preconceived notions about the world around you based on the country that you came from. You need to kill the identity where all of those come from and make room for your Brazilian identity.
