By Jordan Peterson

By Jordan Peterson

  • You must determine where you are going, so that you can bargain for
yourself, so that you don’t end up resentful, vengeful, and cruel.
By Jordan Peterson

  • When the internal critic puts you down using such comparisons, here’s how it operates: First, it selects a single, arbitrary domain of comparison. Then it acts as if that domain is the only one relevant. Then it contrasts you unfavorably with someone truly stellar, within that domain. It can take that final step even further, using the unbridgeable gap between you and its target of comparison as evidence for the fundamental injustice of life. That way your motivation to do anything at all can be most effectively undermined.
By Jordan Peterson

  • What you aim at determines what you see.
By Jordan Peterson quotes

  • It took untold generations to get you where you are. A little gratitude might be in order. If you’re going to insist on bending the world to your way, you better have your reasons.
By Jordan Peterson

  • You should never sacrifice what you could be for what you are.
By Jordan Peterson

  • You’re going to pay a price for every bloody thing you do and everything you don’t do. You don’t get to choose to not pay a price. You get to choose which poison you’re going to take. That’s it.

  • Be the hero your mom wanted you to be.
By Jordan Peterson

  • Instead of protesting and trying to change the world, first win the war of evil within yourself. To make the world a better place first do the things you have to do everyday. And do them – actually do them everyday.
By Jordan Peterson

know you should do, you actually did them every single day – That’s
powerful.

tough.
By Jordan Peterson

  • There’s nothing more powerful than paying attention.
By Jordan Peterson

  • A question to ask is ‘What do you do when you encounter a lion?’, or
‘What do you do when you encounter someone angry?’ – Explore. That
can make you the master of a situation, so you can be the master of
something like fire without being terrified of it.
By Jordan Peterson

  • If you can’t even clean up your own room, who the hell are you to give
advice to the world?
By Jordan Peterson

  • Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself. Take care of yourself.
Define who you are. Refine your personality. Choose your destination.
By Jordan Peterson

  • The first step, perhaps, is to take stock. Who are you? When you buy a
house and prepare to live in it, you hire an inspector to list all its faults–as
it is, in reality, now, not as you wish it could be. You’ll even pay him for the
bad news. You need to know. Need to discover the home’s hidden flaws.
Know whether they are cosmetic imperfections or structural
inadequacies. You need to know because you can’t fix something if you
don’t know it’s broken–and you’re broken. You need an inspector. The
internal critic–it could play that role, if you could get it on track; if you
and it could cooperate.
By Jordan Peterson

  • Watch people like a hawk, and when they do something good, tell them.
By Jordan Peterson

  • Why refuse to specify? Because while you are failing to define success,
you are also refusing to define failure, to yourself, so that if and when you
fail you won’t notice, and it won’t hurt. But that won’t work! You cannot
be fooled so easily–unless you have gone very far down the road! You will
instead carry with you a continual sense of disappointment in your own
Being and the self-contempt that comes along with that and the increasing
hatred for the world that all of that generates.

  • If you dare to do the most difficult thing you can conceptualize your life
will work out better than if you do anything else.
By Jordan Peterson quotes

  • You cannot be protected from the things that frighten you and hurt you,
but if you identify with the part of your being that is responsible for
transformation, then you are always the equal, or more than the equal of
the things that frighten you.
By Jordan Peterson

  • Get your life together and when that happens, you’ll be more productive.
By Jordan Peterson

  • There’s lots of times in your life that you’re not going to be happy… You
want to have something meaningful – that’s the boat that will take you
through the storm.
By Jordan Peterson

  • Make friends with people who want the best for you.
By Jordan Peterson

  • By changing what you cling to in the present, you can alter the future.

Jordan peterson quotes on life



  • Specify your damn goals because how are you going to hit something if you don’t know what it is?
By Jordan Peterson

By Jordan Peterson

By Jordan Peterson

Walk tall and gaze forthrightly ahead. Dare to be dangerous. Encourage the serotonin to flow plentifully through the neural pathways desperate for its calming influence.
By Jordan Peterson

  • It took untold generations to get you where you are. A little gratitude might be in order. If you’re going to insist on bending the world to your way, you better have your reasons.
By Jordan Peterson

  • You must determine where you are going in your life, because you cannot get there unless you move in that direction. Random wandering will not move you forward.

By Jordan Peterson

  • Taking the easy way out or telling the truth, those are not merely two choices. They are different pathways through life. They are utterly different ways of existing.
By jordan peterson quotes

  • Just because you don’t see your potential doesn’t mean it’s not there. Everyone has something to contribute, even if they don’t know it. You can always commit suicide tomorrow. Today, you have things to do. The world needs you even if you don’t need it.
By jordan peterson

  • Be grateful in spite of your suffering.
By jordan peterson

  • When you educate someone you teach them how to use language to arm them; straighten them out; elevate them and ennoble them and then they are not misshapen half carved blocks of humanity. People that can stand up; stand around and maneuver through the world; contribute properly to the community and keep the world oriented between chaos and order.
By jordan peterson

  • Life has no meaning.’ Well here’s a meaning; work hard to eliminate suffering. ‘Life is meaningless.’ Say that to a child who’s suffering from brain cancer. ‘In a million years, who’s going to notice the difference?’ Your nihilism is useless in the face of suffering, so abandon it. If you want orientation for your life, work on reducing suffering.
By jordan peterson

  • It’s all very well to think the meaning of life is happiness, but what happens when you’re unhappy? Happiness is a great side effect. When it comes, accept it gratefully, but it’s fleeting and unpredictable.
By jordan peterson

  • You must determine where you are going in life, because you cannot get there unless you move in that direction. Random wondering will not move you forward.

By jordan peterson

  • Do something difficult. If there’s nothing in your life right now that is confusing, challenging or just beyond the limits of your control, then you aren’t moving forward or growing. You are falling backwards. Standing still is not a solution.
By jordan peterson

Jordan peterson quotes 12 rules



  • When you have something to say, silence is a lie.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Every bit of learning is a little death. Every bit of new information challenges a previous conception, forcing it to dissolve into chaos before it can be reborn as something better. Sometimes such deaths virtually destroy us.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • In the West, we have been withdrawing from our tradition-, religion- and even nation-centred cultures, partly to decrease the danger of group conflict. But we are increasingly falling prey to the desperation of meaninglessness, and that is no improvement at all.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • The better ambitions have to do with the development of character and ability, rather than status and power. Status you can lose. You carry character with you wherever you go, and it allows you to prevail against adversity.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • No tree can grow to Heaven,” adds the ever-terrifying Carl Gustav Jung, psychoanalyst extraordinaire, “unless its roots reach down to Hell.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Always place your becoming above your current being.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Ideologies are substitutes for true knowledge, and ideologues are always dangerous when they come to power, because a simple-minded I-know-it-all approach is no match for the complexity of existence.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • The successful among us delay gratification. The successful among us bargain with the future.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • To stand up straight with your shoulders back is to accept the terrible responsibility of life, with eyes wide open. It means deciding to voluntarily transform the chaos of potential into the realities of habitable order. It means adopting the burden of self-conscious vulnerability, and accepting the end of the unconscious paradise of childhood, where finitude and mortality are only dimly comprehended. It means willingly undertaking the sacrifices necessary to generate a productive and meaningful reality (it means acting to please God, in the ancient language).
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • We require routine and tradition. That’s order. Order can become excessive, and that’s not good, but chaos can swamp us, so we drown— and that is also not good. We need to stay on the straight and narrow path.
Best Jordan Peterson Quotes

  • We deserve some respect. You deserve some respect. You are important to other people, as much as to yourself. You have some vital role to play in the unfolding destiny of the world. You are, therefore, morally obliged to take care of yourself. You should take care of, help and be good to yourself the same way you would take care of, help and be good to someone you loved and valued. You may therefore have to conduct yourself habitually in a manner that allows you some respect for your own Being—and fair enough. But every person is deeply flawed. Everyone falls short of the glory of God. If that stark fact meant, however, that we had no responsibility to care, for ourselves as much as others, everyone would be brutally punished all the time. That would not be good. That would make the shortcomings of the world, which can make everyone who thinks honestly question the very propriety of the world, worse in every way. That simply cannot be the proper path forward.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • People organize their brains with conversation. If they don't have anyone to tell their story to, they lose their minds. Like hoarders, they cannot unclutter themselves.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • So, attend carefully to your posture. Quit drooping and hunching around. Speak your mind. Put your desires forward, as if you had a right to them—at least the same right as others. Walk tall and gaze forthrightly ahead. Dare to be dangerous. Encourage the serotonin to flow plentifully through the neural pathways desperate for its calming influence.
By Jordan B. Peterson quotes

  • Nietzsche said that a man’s worth was determined by how much truth he could tolerate”
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • To suffer terribly and to know yourself as the cause: that is Hell.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • It took untold generations to get you where you are. A little gratitude might be in order. If you're going to insist on bending the world to your way, you better have your reasons.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • If your life is not what it could be, try telling the truth. If you cling desperately to an ideology, or wallow in nihilism, try telling the truth. If you feel weak and rejected, and desperate, and confused, try telling the truth. In Paradise, everyone speaks the truth. That is what makes it Paradise. Tell the truth. Or, at least, don’t lie.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • You must determine where you are going in your life, because you cannot get there unless you move in that direction. Random wandering will not move you forward. It will instead disappoint and frustrate you and make you anxious and unhappy and hard to get along with (and then resentful, and then vengeful, and then worse).
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Don’t underestimate the power of vision and direction. These are irresistible forces, able to transform what might appear to be unconquerable obstacles into travers able pathways and expanding opportunities. Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself. Take care with yourself. Define who you are. Refine your personality. Choose your destination and articulate your Being. As the great nineteenth-century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche so brilliantly noted, “He whose life has a why can bear almost any how.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Perhaps you are overvaluing what you don’t have and undervaluing what you do.
Best Jordan Peterson quotes

  • You can only find out what you actually believe (rather than what you think you believe) by watching how you act. You simply don’t know what you believe, before that. You are too complex to understand yourself.
By Jordan B. Peterson.

  • Sometimes, when people have a low opinion of their own worth—or, perhaps, when they refuse responsibility for their lives—they choose a new acquaintance, of precisely the type who proved troublesome in the past. Such people don’t believe that they deserve any better—so they don’t go looking for it. Or, perhaps, they don’t want the trouble of better. Freud called this a “repetition compulsion.” He thought of it as an unconscious drive to repeat the horrors of the past—sometimes, perhaps, to formulate those horrors more precisely, sometimes to attempt more active mastery and sometimes, perhaps, because no alternatives beckon. People create their worlds with the tools they have directly at hand. Faulty tools produce faulty results. Repeated use of the same faulty tools produces the same faulty results. It is in this manner that those who fail to learn from the past doom themselves to repeat it. It’s partly fate. It’s partly inability. It’s partly … unwillingness to learn? Refusal to learn? Motivated refusal to learn?
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • And if you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.
By Jordan B

  • Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Intolerance of others’ views (no matter how ignorant or incoherent they may be) is not simply wrong; in a world where there is no right or wrong, it is worse: it is a sign you are embarrassingly unsophisticated or, possibly, dangerous.
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • Order is not enough. You can’t just be stable, and secure, and unchanging, because there are still vital and important new things to be learned. Nonetheless, chaos can be too much. You can’t long tolerate being swamped and overwhelmed beyond your capacity to cope while you are learning what you still need to know. Thus, you need to place one foot in what you have mastered and understood and the other in what you are currently exploring and mastering. Then you have positioned yourself where the terror of existence is under control and you are secure, but where you are also alert and engaged. That is where there is something new to master and some way that you can be improved. That is where meaning is to be found.

  • RULE 4 COMPARE YOURSELF TO WHO YOU WERE YESTERDAY, NOT TO WHO SOMEONE ELSE IS TODAY
By Jordan B. Peterson

  • So, listen, to yourself and to those with whom you are speaking. Your wisdom then consists not of the knowledge you already have, but the continual search for knowledge, which is the highest form of wisdom.
By Jordan B. Peterson
