Starting right from this point, learn to make decisions and act as a lucky person. Begin to live with a sense of success. Focus on success, until you start thinking and talking about it and feeling it. If everything you do from this point will be accompanied by the sense of “success”, your mind will soon provide the corresponding rise in your affairs.
A vital prerequisite for success is the ability to make decisions. Any one of us makes decisions every day. However, it is important to understand that the decision will not be in force until you start acting in accordance with it. But even if we act, a marriage, an investment or a trip may be unsuccessful. The reason is simple. We are not taught by others and ourselves to adhere to our decisions, to uphold them and to believe in them.
At some point, our minds can provide results in only one direction. Our spirit or the third dimension of our being always says: “I can.” But it can operate freely and bring success in our endeavors only if the mind is in harmony with it. As we know, the mind can be “for”, “against” or “neutral.”
Even in childhood, our mind is like the adult mind. To act, it needs good weighty reasons. If you ask ten years old Tommy to go out of the house, he will hesitate or will not go at all. If you add that his friend Jimmy is waiting for him to go to play football, Tommy will go immediately. If you tell him that Mr. Smith, whom he broke the windshield of the car, is waiting for him, he probably will refuse to go.
By analogy, it is essential that we attain and maintain the orientation of our consciousness in the desired direction for us.
3 steps to decision making
Before making decisions that are vital to your future, practice on deciding on less important issues. Then move on to more important decisions.
In this way you will achieve two important goals:
1. You will discipline your mind, making it focus on what is desirable for you.
2. By accustoming your mind to taking decisions on less important matters you give yourself the opportunity to successfully perform the increasingly complex tasks.
Thus you will be able to easily achieve important goals in every sphere of life.

This conclusion was reached by a new US-German research, shedding more light on one of the biggest enigmas in the history of the world, the extinction of the dinosaurs, a landmark event that paved the way for the prevalence of most mammals and eventually of human.
The new study shows that ultimately the extinction of the dinosaurs was not a single, brief event.
The researchers, led by paleontologist Stephen Brusatte from Columbia University and American Museum of Natural History, argue that large vegetarian dinosaurs like Triceratops were already going through a process of slow extinction during the last 12 million years of the Cretaceous period.
In contrast, meat-eating dinosaurs (including the terrifying tyrannosaurs) and some species of vegetarian dinosaurs did not enter in phase of gradual extinction, so the impact of the celestial body triggered their sudden destruction (except for the flying dinosaurs that survived after the cataclysmic event).
For the first time the new study focused on so-called “morphological diversity", i.e. anatomical diversity of skeletal body-type observed within the individual groups of dinosaurs.
The previous studies were based almost exclusively on estimation of changes in the number of dinosaur species through time.
The basic biological rule is that if a species has a growing variety of body shapes, then this species has an evolutionary advantage for survival in changing ecosystems, while in the opposite case it is under threat of extinction.
Thus, the researchers estimated seven large groups of dinosaurs that totally included about 150 different species (incidentally, as pointed out by scientists at the end of the Cretaceous period there were hundreds of dinosaur species, among which there were significant differences in size, shape and nutrition).
Large vegetarian dinosaurs started declining slowly at least 12 million years before the asteroid fell on their heads. It is not sure whether any species of dinosaurs would have survived if the huge asteroid had not fallen to Earth.
According to Brusatte, “the world of dinosaurs already knew many changes before the asteroid hit the Earth. Their disappearance was not an easy and fast story, as most people think… What we can now say with confidence is that when the asteroid fell and volcanoes began to erupt, it did not hit a world where everything was going well“.
