so what book is going to give you the
rules of life hmm what is the book that gives you the rules of life are there
rules in life well according to author Jordan Peterson
yes there are there are 12 rules in life I mean really do you really need rules
and life surely life is for living for experiencing for learning from from your
well the things you do incorrectly the things you miss upon surely that’s why
we go to school after all surely that’s why we go to college always your tell me
this one book will give you rules for life is that not like the Ten
Commandments and religion is that not like different religions that give us
this particular di’t and tell us hey follow this and this will make you
perfect or happy maybe it is maybe it is not
but according to Peterson’s book the 12 rules are going to be the antidote to
chaos chaos what is the chaos you speak of now this
book before I go on about it has had its criticisms a lot of
criticism all you need to do is go online and you’ll see a lot of criticism
from however to give it a fair summary and review I think it’s it’s it’s really
true to say that amazon has put it in its bestseller list back in 2019 it was
number 41 and that was late 2019 so who is this author first stuff because why
is this person selling us this twelve rules for like an antidote to chaos
why does like me rules huh Jordan Pederson well he is a clinical
psychologist from can i dad yes Canada not American Canada North us so he’s
also a ton of cultural critic now in the University of Toronto he took
up professorship there in psychology and in particularly he was looking at
believer not ideological belief and religion haha he also looked at the
improvement of personality in performance so again we asked the
question why are the rules to life well maybe there is no commandments to life
from 1997 way back for years to 1993 he lived in Massachusetts and he was
teaching and doing research in Harvard University no this is a wonderful
University were renowned in this psychological type of area so Peterson
Maine indeed no it’s tough for something about it and he was also associate
professor in the psychology department back then in the late 1990s here he
looked at aggression from alcohol and drug abuse and in fact a number of love
thesis approval proposals there were a bit unconventional were supervised by
Peterson now perhaps I say perhaps this is where some of the criticism of his
work comes from now after this he went to Canada and there he became as said
the professor at the University of Toronto
now the fantastic Routledge poachers they went back in 1919 and publishes
maps of meaning this is the architecture of belief this book took Peterson 13
believe it about 13 years to complete perhaps if he took the 12 rules of life
he wouldn’t had such chaos to the under the unlucky 13 years he spent writing
the book and it was described that particular book as comprehensive theory
for how we construct a meaning so there was 13 years to construct meaning yet
there’s 12 rules to life after all interesting now it was represented by a
mythical process of the explanatory hero and here there was interpretation of
religious and mythical models of what reality hmm it’s a little bit outside
our comfort zone let’s keep it simple but essentially essentially that’s what
he did you try to simplify it all into rules for life that particular book
looked at religion philosophy mythology narratives of just going into all of
those narratives as such and put it into an easier form of pages ie a book after
13 years of struggling with all his newer psychology and mythology religion
etc his goal was to well essentially look at people individually and not just
as groups but to look at the social conflict and then the people to parties
individuals or the paths they took moreso to take them and look at the
results and how how they kind of got on afterwards he was interested in things
like the Rwandan genocide which is a horrible atrocity the Auschwitz
concentration camps and places like that he considered himself a pragmatist and
looked at using science and neuropsychology to look at the belief
systems well the past the past of the world past people and vice-versa so this
is where his book his grace book his best seller on Amazon this is the type
of tinting of I suppose criticisms but also a complimentary type of reviews
were given to him for the 12 rules of life no we get to the rules in a few
months but in 2004 he was part of the 13 part TV series based on the book his
book the maps of meaning so worth checking that one out if you indeed
agree with what he was saying now he had many colleagues that were well known as
well and he his authoring was well indeed it was said in 2017 that his
project was of great significance of psychological significance with biblical
times and it was the 12 rooms of ice – an antidote to chaos that brought a lot
of shall we say heat to his name now it
became the number one national believer not a best-seller and internationally a
best-seller also we looked at essentially his things from the point of
view of what are these rules because I like to get into the Nitty Gritty of
things I don’t like to be going around the block too much but it’s really
important to look at Peterson’s critics and criticisms so what are the twelve
rules I mean this is why we have to take it with a pinch of salt or Dewey well
there’s a lot of as I said people who are saying well this is a wonderful book
so that’s pit jumping right into it rule number one stand up straight with your
shoulders back seriously is that it well according to Peterson our subconscious
brain is constantly looking around the environment to figure out the hierarchy
of society so we need to look at people and see how they respond in a positive
manner I look for the direction that it gives us within our brains knowing
mentions serotonin things like this rather than going to mmm tough or really
intensely into it and getting to neurological that stuff will keep it
simple because he looks at action steps and he reckons that because people are
well everyone is looking at well everybody else to access their place in
the world then a person needs to use this to their or your advantage now in
order to do this you have to do is stand up straight with your shoulders back you
have to be very confident and address your posture now when this happens when
this occurs you start to treat well life starts to treat you better
and then there’s brain chemicals that are released from this hmm
interesting rule number two then treat yourself like
someone you’re responsible for helping us say it again treat yourself like
someone you are responsible for helping now many people are kinder to their pets
it said this book than themselves know why you have a pet if you’re not going
to be kind to yourself in the first place the mind follows but according to
this book you need to treat yourself like someone you’re responsible for
helping hmm get your head around that one moving on then he puts this into an
action step and one of them is to begin by running down your values and
principles and then trying to stick to them now that’s a fair enough bit of
advice but again it means be stuck to rule number 3 of 12 make friends with
people who want the best for you that’s fair enough it’s similar to being
positive than hang around what both positive people
YV with negative people he says start by ordering your ten closest friends a bit
analytical your friends auditing them best of look at that number four he says
compare yourself to and who you were yesterday not to who someone else is
today huh get your head around that one so watch your yesterday but not who
someone else is today hmm that in itself is interesting again
action step points just start comparing yourself to who you were yesterday
presumably that’s to improve so we take it what pinch of salt we move on number
five do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them hmm
well that’s fair enough I mean why would you want to get your
child to do something that is going to make you angry or matter just like them
hmm so beaky Richard children about the
rules so one of the trial rules is be care with your children about the rules
halfway there put your house in order before you criticize the world yeah I
hear a couple of all things for you back like people in glass houses shouldn’t
throw stones hmm that’s essentially it the seventh one is pursue what is
meaningful not what is expedient so what is meaningful that is one of the goal
questions and he says ask how you can or ask yeah essentially how you can make
the world a little better today but is it your work or is it their world that’s
the interesting part I mean essentially there’s a little bit of contradiction
going on right there what if a child is about your child
Gavin saying rule number eight tell the truth or at least don’t lie no there’s
huge wisdom behind this and realistically a lot of the old sayings
like I said favorite glass houses shouldn’t throw stones tell the truth
these are don’t need to come from huge wisdom of one author Anna Peterson these
can come from many many millions of years of wisdom from human beings these
have been written down before and this is one of the major criticisms of his
work that he’s rehashing all the stuff so he says may lie to avoid hurting
others and we all know that so do we need to rehash it here is or there is
one of the criticisms the ninth one of 12 is assume the person you are
listening to might know something you don’t
well that is true because essentially if you ask how are you well you don’t know
how they are to you ask them or they tell you so the assumption is correct
isn’t it you don’t know how their until they tell you hmm
interesting moving up the 10th one the 10th through be precise with your speech
now that’s a fair enough piece of advice why not why say something you don’t mean
be precise and he says if something is bother you get precise and you know what
for sure the world would be a better place if people are just essentially
more honest but that’s number 10 of 12 rules is that not like an earlier one
which was be truthful hmm the eleventh one is lead children all when they are
skateboarding now that’s very V or is it and he says well if you essentially
leave your kids alone when they do things with some element of
a danger they need to grow up well that’s good because it’s not exactly
cotton wool parenting it’s not exactly just you know being the helicopter
parent let them live and learn from their mistakes lastly it says pet a cat
when you encounter one on the street well what about a dog I say what about
another animal pedicab e says buy a coffee or maybe take a new route home
for the adventurous be grateful there are some good bits
Tippett’s of an oyster for sure but the best one I can give you is subscribe so

videos just like this so thank you very much for watching and until next time
wonderful day!
