Dr.Jordan B Peterson quotes to manage life

You only get to the furture by learning from the past and living the present as you want the future to be. 

If you fulfill your obligations everyday, you don't need to worry about the future

Don't say things that make you weak

Remind yourself of the good things you have accomplished

Don't let your kids be someone you don't like

You are not who you could be and you could be worthwhile.

Don't do things that you hate because you will take it out on others, even if you think you wont

Be grateful even in your suffering

Act so you can tell the truth about the way you act

You need to live independently of the good and bad opinions of others

Do not try to save someone who isn't asking to be saved

Opportunity lurks where responsiblity has been abdicated

Don't avoid something because it is frighting if it stands in your way

Imagine who you could be and then aim single-mindedly toward that. 

If you can't order your own life you shouldn't order anything more than that. 

Set your house in perfect order before you critice someone elses

Play the most magnificent game you can’ while you’re waiting (to die), because you don’t have anything better to do really. Why not ‘pick the best thing possible that you could do’

Don't protect your kids from anything bad happening to them.  Make them strong enough so that any number of things can happen to them.

Do not rob people of their pain or anger by making it your anger and pain also.

You never solve someone's problem's by removing from them the opportunity to solve the problem on their own. That disarms them in the face of chaos and malevolence.

You reason with people you respect
You bully or force those who you hold in contempt 

Don't judge people by the worst thing they have done.

Listen as if the other person knows something that you need to learn

“You don't get to choose not to pay a price, you only get to choose which price you pay”

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.


Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself. Take care with yourself. Define who you are. Refine your personality. Choose your destination and articulate your Being.   Friedrich Nietzsche so brilliantly noted, “He whose life has a why can bear almost any how.”

Don't give anyone your opinion about their life unless they ask you for it. 

Anything you let win grows.  Don't practice what you don't want to become.

When people complain to you don't get anger for them, just listen and tell them you are sorry they are going thru that.
Don't make it about you and what you would do.  Don't get anger on their behalf and try to help them see what they should do or say what you would do.  It is up to them and they don't need that and you don't need that.
