Jordan Peterson - Your Life Is Built For More (4K) | Modern Wisdom Podcast 436

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson is Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and an author.
Letting go of the good for the great is a terrifying prospect and most people fear risking what they have for what they want. I flew out to Texas to sit down with Jordan and discuss his principles for how to get past the things which keep us stuck in life.
Expect to learn how to deal with feelings of loneliness from thinking in a different way, which skin-colour emoji Jordan Peterson uses, what he meant by "enforced monogamy", how to deal with imposter syndrome, how to become more dangerous in life, Jordan's thoughts after meeting Elon Musk, whether there's a value in having an enemy in life and much more...

    Extended closeups of the hand: NO. PLEASE STOP. This would be appropriate if Dr. Peterson's intent or anything about his message were enhanced by unnaturally emphasizing his hand to the exclusion of everything else in the frame. Please don't exaggerate your creativity to the extent that a viewer has to contend with your choice to place extreme emphasis on something irrelevant to Dr. Peterson's message, especially when that thing is part of Dr. Peterson's body, that he is not personally waving in front of the camera. A film director makes choices when he or she is the storyteller, and if the director is good, there is a narrative reason behind the choices. Here Dr. Peterson is the storyteller. Please get out of his way ... make him look good, and then let him do what he is there to do without announcing to the audience that you, not Dr, Peterson is in charge, and you can make us all stare at his hand while he speaks. It is your right to reject this comment, but I hope you at least understand it and reject it consciously if you do. Thank you.

    Look on the bright side, when she and her future siblings are adults, you and your wife will be in your late 40s/early 50s. You’ll have many years left to be “childfree” and the money to really enjoy it. AND if your kids have kids in their 20s you’ll be able to know your grandchildren and watch them grow up.

    It’s so interesting how this man can explain my “quasi midlife crisis” in a few seconds and I needed almost a year to figure this out… As a woman turning 31 last year and having reached all the career goals I’ve been working towards to for basically my whole life, I suddenly looked around and wondered “Is this is? Is this all there is to my life? Work?”. I felt a deep sense of dissatisfaction and also shame because I couldn’t be grateful for what I had achieved. I resented everything. It took quite some time to figure out that I simply didn’t want to spend my whole life working my butt off. I want to live, I want friends, a relationship (no kids, but I suppose most other women want that at some point). And it’s okay to “simply” want a life! To not be striving for one career goal after another… for both men and women. However, society seems to put a huge emphasis on work as a means to, I don’t know, fulfilment in a way? Well, anyway, I love listening to Dr. Peterson. I’ve been making much more sense to myself ever since I started devouring his lectures, books, and podcasts :-)

    I hesitate to write this as I know it's not right for some people (tho a fraction of those who say it) but having children is what forces us to REALLY become a mature person. It instantly makes your life about something greater than yourself and provides a depth to life that people don't realize until they have them (other than faith I suppose). It's also the most optimistic thing you can do. I wish you best regardless of course but my wish for you is that your heart is changed on this. Blessings!

    Jordan really has saved me from giving into despair, I've played Cain for most of my life (from story of Cain and Abel). Everything I've done I failed at but I've gained much more wisdom as a result. I'm happy to push forward into an engineering career because I've finally been given a reason to go through my life with a fine tooth comb and came out with a new found realistic optimism! Fantastic interview of one of the most important people in today's society 👏

    My wife and I allowed ourselves to be brainwashed into the idea that career is number one, and that having kids is an environmental sin. It wasn't until I started listening to Jordan's bible lectures 6 years ago that we finally started to wrestle with those lies. Now we have a beautiful 5 month old baby boy, and if God is willing we'll welcome at least one more child into this beautiful, dangerous world. We are in our mid 30s.

    Listening to Dr. Peterson since his deserate illness and slow and painful recovery is like listening to Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony. Rachmaninov wrote his Second after he emerged from his own dark night of the soul, and he poured his heart into it. The music is unbearably poignant and lyrical and tender. Dr. Peterson’s words after being refined by suffering reminds me of the eloquence and transcendent beauty of the music of Rachmaninov. He has a sweetness and gentleness since his illness, he is like gold refined.

    Its a big statement. E.g. writing code for a software program would be equally hard Now imagine writing a book and then coding an application such as Adobe to construct it into a movie. ‘Deeply’ is probably the keyword and implies introspection and contemplation. There are many things that could make you think that way. Was just a blanket statement. With mostly truth to it. Only word he should have changed was ‘nothing’ “There’s not many things that will make you think as deep as when you are trying to write a book.” That would have been a more accurate way of saying it Its fine that we criticise this guys language decisions because he clearly exemplifies a high level of precision to his words and rarely gets it wrong.

    @MediaFilter disagree because "thinking" actual top down cognitive control is not the primary faculty at work when creating pieces of art. A musician or painter does not use logic and reasoning to build art. Art comes from somewhere more like imagination and intuition, which is different from cognitive ability. IQ is not correlated at all with crearivity. Writing, however, requires a lot of thinking, research, editing, all that. Unless its creative writing, like a novel, which are obviously not the type of books Jordan writes.

    With 4 kids under 5 I was overwhelmed quite often. When those kids hit high school ( teenagers in general ) we struggled with power and authority. When the last one moved out I cried for 3 months. Yes it’s hard work. You are shaping a future adult. It’s not easy. When I broke my back who do you think provided me intimate care preserving my dignity!!!! My daughters. When my mom got sick I went to her. She was diagnosed with cancer and I stayed for hospice and honored every single last wish she had. Kids are everything to parents when parents are at the end of life or in need of familial love and loyalty. I have a 32 year old daughter who has chosen Benjamin’s of babies ( her words not mine) I told her she best save a lot of those Benjamin’s because elder care is the absolutely most expensive form of care in America and at the end of her life she will stand alone. If your abusive or broken and just know you’d be a lousy parents then please don’t have any. If you believe you won’t regret that decision later I suggest you think long and hard of the fullness of life. There’s more to life than next week. What you think you want today could change tomorrow. Babies are born within a window of opportunity so if you wait you can lose that opportunity forever

    To the abandoned women with children struggling to make ends meet without the support system she thought she had there isn't that much of a bright side. Everyone in those families, and they are prevalent, is miserable, suicidal, self medicated, trapped... And as a black woman, my reality is way different. Kids are grown now and I have the health issues as evidence of living in constant survival mode. We need to be honest with women. After children we will be called low value, unattractive, past our sale dates, etc. Men can be cruel, and so can women who cannot relate.

    @Ben Luna respect. I'm not saying Peterson is wrong about everything, I'm not talking in absolute terms at all, but I do think he's sexist and has problems when it comes to being rational about religion and politics. I'm talking from a position of experience that I am unfortunately not able to go in to, but I am very familiar with his work and many people like him, which is why I hold such a strong opinion about the guy. I think he can be very misleading to weaker minds, like I said, he's right about a lot of things, but the things he's wrong about totally fly under his radar and I think it's dangerous if you're not familiar with the subject areas he touches upon.

    @Michael Rathbone you just called a bunch of people you don’t know “wasteman material”, then continue to say you don’t make statements about people you don’t know. This type of inconsistency suggests a mind that conveniently forgets principle for the sake of cheap insults. In my first comment I said I was curious to know what experience you had. While there was an obvious undertone of skepticism, I did not make any arrogant assertions. My “zero experience” comment was in response to someone who said that experience isn’t necessary to criticize someone who’s an expert in their field. I was simply pointing out how ridiculous that is, and justifying why I was questioning your experience. I’m not saying Jordan Peterson is right about everything, but to dismiss him as a pseudo-intellectual despite his success at the top of his field for decades would imply that he’s been able to con or outwit all the true intellectuals in that field, which seems like a silly argument to make. So you shouldn’t be surprised that people who find value in what he has to say become slightly defensive when you imply he has no merit

    @Low Road I disagree with Peterson in many, maybe even most ways politically. But the above statement is a good one, and applies to all people. The height of moral virtue is to become an embodiment of your own ideal: the abstraction of your own values.

    54:28 It's true. When you do something so much, you start to get a grasp of similar thing so much faster, even if this is your first time seeing it. It's exactly what happened to me with math. Even a semester ago there would be no way in hell I could understand math that quickly, but now I'm gaining so much speed it's incredible. I've always felt like I'm academically challenged but I guess hard work does pay off.

    "I missed being good at something." Man, this hit. I have some days off from painting (I don't hate the work, I hate not doing what I'm good at and which puts more beauty in the world). This time is an opportunity to craft, to write, maybe even try to make a video. I'll have 6 years of sobriety soon, and my daughter will be 7 years old. Too much of that time has been spent doing what is profitable and safe, and not what I'm good at. The sin isn't being a terrible painter, the sin is being creative and intelligent and not using it to make more beauty, shine more light. To do what I'm good at, to walk that path of righteousness, is something I admire so much, about both of you, so thank you.
