Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life: Rule #3 - Make Friends With...(H: Shrikant)
“If you surround yourself with people who support your upward aim, they will not tolerate your cynicism and destructiveness. They will instead encourage you when you do good for yourself and others; and punish you carefully when you do not. This will bolster your resolve to do what You should do in the most appropriate and careful manner. People who are not aiming up will do the opposite... Make friends with people who want the best for you.” See this brief video to get the most out of this conversation. ******************************** ******************************** [This is a Conversation based on Jordan Peterson’s book “12 Rules of Life”. Reading of the book is recommended but not required; a brief summary of the chapter on the chapter being discussed will be presented followed by a general discussion.] We will be joined by 20+ members of other conversation groups.
