  • You know that moment when you watch a motivational video here on youtube.

  • You feel like you are about to take over the world.

  • Your energy level is over the roof, and you can imagine how you have achieved all of your

  • goals.

  • So you decide to put out the work!

  • But 20 minutes later, you get distracted, and the same feeling of laziness and mediocrity

  • comes back!

  • That's why relying on getting motivated isn't a good idea.

  • You have to set up your life in such a way that you might not get over-excited, but at

  • least you will have have the will to put out the work most of the time.

  • And Jordan Peterson's book does precisely that.

  • He has outlined 12 rules that will help you to keep your life in order, but we are going

  • to explore only 7 of them that I believe will truly keep you motivated and disciplined.

  • 1.

  • My favorite one is: Make friends with people who want the best for you

  • Remember, when you were a kid, every other kid in the neighborhood was your friend, you

  • would play with each other every single day.

  • You didn't have to call each other, you just go out and play with them, and if you can't

  • make it, you don't have to explain yourself to anyone.

  • It's the best kind of friendship; you could possibly have.

  • But when you hit your 20s, you will be in touch with 5 or 6 at best of them.

  • You don't play around every day, but you hung out every other week, maybe!

  • However when you start getting closer to your 30s, you would wish to spend more time with

  • friends, but with so many responsibilities and bills you have to pay, you don't always

  • get the chance to see one or two of your best friends that you still talk to time to time.

  • From one side, it seems like you are consciously choosing your friends, but in many ways, you

  • do not.

  • You were friends because you guys went to the same school or studied in the same class.

  • Maybe it was your first day in college, and he was the first person you talked to, or

  • you are friends because you are simply neighbors.

  • So, you start talking to each other, and over time, it develops into a friendship.

  • The problem is, they might not be the best people to be around, but they were the first

  • you met.

  • And as you grow elder, it gets challenging to make new friends, so you just stick around

  • with them because it's comfortable.

  • Your friends are going to have a massive influence on your life, so if they genuinely don't want

  • the best for you.

  • Envy and jealousy will be dragging you back!

  • Remember, don't let time define your friendships.

  • If someone brings negativity into life, don't be afraid to move on and make new friends,

  • the world is filled with beautiful people who could make your life brighter!

  • 2.

  • Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world

  • The other day, I was hanging out with friends, and one of the guys started talking about

  • how billionaires are ruining the world.

  • They are destroying jobs, mistreating their employees, creating horrible jobs, and damaging

  • the environment and causing climate change out of greed.

  • I am not going to try to defend anyone here, because in some ways that's true.

  • The world isn't sunshine and rainbows, but the question should be, what are you trying

  • to achieve with your criticism ?! It might make you feel good about yourself;

  • however, you are also part of the problem.

  • Aren't you driving your car, using all the services these giant corporations are offering?

  • Well, how about you take a different path, instead of pointing fingers!

  • Take care of your house first, of course, you can never be perfect, but you can try

  • to change as many things as you can.

  • Are you not happy with your paycheck?

  • Well, are you working as hard as you should be in your career?

  • Probably not!

  • Have you taken full advantage of all of the opportunities you were offered?

  • I think I know the answer!

  • Are you having health issues?

  • Well, Do you have habits that are destroying your health?

  • A wise man once said: If each person would work hard on making himself a better person,

  • then the world would automatically change for the better!

  • 3.

  • compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today

  • We tend to compare ourselves with people who are better than us.

  • You walk into the gym for the first time in your entire life and work out for three straight

  • hours, doing bench press, dumbbell press, pushups, squats, deadlift and everything else

  • but then another guy comes in and works out for half an hour and yet he is much more physically

  • fit.

  • It would be dumb to compare yourself to him.

  • But we do that all the time!

  • The question that you should be putting in front of you is, did I became physically better

  • than yesterday?

  • Am I a better person compare to yesterday, did I do anything meaningful today that made

  • me a slightly better person.

  • If the answer is No, then you should feel bad about yourself.

  • Because you just wasted an entire day without making any progress or what so ever.

  • There is nothing wrong with being financially less successful than your friend or physically

  • less attractive than your neighbor.

  • You are a unique individual; your circumstances are different; you are born to different parents

  • in a different place with a different set of strengths.

  • 4.

  • Stand up straight with your shoulders back

  • In school, there is at least one kid who will get bullied because there is always the predator

  • who is looking for his victim.

  • That kid doesn't randomly get bullied; you don't want to intimidate someone who will

  • fight back!

  • So, when you are walking around, with your shoulder down, you give an image of a good

  • little buy who can't even stand for himself.

  • Even when you grow up, the image your portrait about yourself is going to have the most significant

  • influence on how people are going to treat you!

  • Just by standing straight with your shoulders back, you are sending a message that you will

  • fight back if someone strikes.

  • But it also means you understand and accept the terrible responsibility of life, with

  • eyes wide open.

  • People will assume that you are competent and able.

  • That will only boost your confidence.

  • Your conversations will flow better, with fewer awkward pauses.

  • This will make you more likely to meet people, interact with them, and impress them.

  • Doing so will not only genuinely increase the probability that good things will happen

  • to youbut it will also make those good things feel better when they do happen.

  • 5.

  • pursue what is meaningful

  • When we chose what to do in life, we often give priority to what pays the bills.

  • And I don't blame anyone for doing that.

  • Especially if you have responsibilities on your shoulders.

  • You have a mortgage, maybe kids!

  • So no matter what you do out there in the office, as long as your family is taken care

  • of, it doesn't matter!

  • But what usually happens down the road is that, especially in the long run, you are

  • going to feel empty inside, which leads to depression.

  • And I am not even talking about doing what you love.

  • Because that's a luxury and most people in life unfortunately never achieve that.

  • And sometimes it's not also their fault; circumstances might force you to take a different path!

  • Sometimes people just don't know what they want, what inspires them, or what makes them

  • happy!

  • But at least if you do what you believe is meaningful, you will have a sense of feeling

  • that your life matters.

  • That you are not merely living, but instead making the world slightly better.

  • 6.

  • assume the person you are listening knows something you don't

  • "You already know what you know, unless your life is perfect, what you know is not enough

  • . Don't you get into trouble, conflicts?

  • Aren't you time to time taking terrible decisions or just maybe failing.

  • Are you happy with your financial situation or career!

  • Are you depressed or anxious?

  • You know why?!

  • Because you are ignorant!

  • I am not saying you are dumb, but There are still plenty of things you haven't figured

  • out yet.

  • And whoever you are talking to knows something you don't.

  • Because he lived a completely different life, experienced many different things that you

  • haven't, met people, you don't know.

  • So instead of turning every conversation into an argument, always assume the person you

  • are listening to knows something you don't.

  • 7. be precise in your speech

  • Imagine waking up in pain, you are sick and maybe even dying slowly.

  • "If you refuse to tell your doctor about your pain, then what you have is unspecified diseases,

  • and you have to rely on doctor's skills to figure it out.

  • The chances of you recovering are significantly lower.

  • But if you talk to your doctor, all those possibly terrible diseases will turn into

  • just one terrible disease or just disappear into nothing.

  • Most of our problems are a result of miscommunication.

  • How many families were torn apart because one or both of them weren't precise about

  • what they didn't like about their relationship?

  • How many times you start a dialog, and then it turns into an argument about something

  • completely different.

  • So, be careful with that you tell yourself and others, chose your words carefully, Organize

  • those words into the correct sentences, and those sentences into the correct paragraphs.

  • By applying these seven rules in your life, you will bring your life in order, and that

  • will help you to stay focused and motivated to pursue your goals.
