FIND MEANING IN YOUR LIFE - JORDAN PETERSON [AMAZING] - YouTube
If you want to speak effectively, you have to know way more than what you're talking about.

You want to know 10 times as much as you're saying in the lecture, so that you can elaborate.
On the outside: you're not delivering a speak to a group. There isn't a group, there's a bunch of individuals. I alwyas talk to people one at a time.
There isn't anything that you can possibly do, that makes you more competent, in everything you do, than to learn how to communicate.
If you're a carpenter, being a good communicator makes you 10 times a better carpenter.
If you're a really good communicator, you don't win all the time, but everybody walk out thrilled of that communication. And so people line up to do things with you.
That all depends on you ability to communicate, so practice.
Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, and not to someone else today.
You're a danger to your children no matter what:
You can let them go in the world and let them be hurt,
Or you can over-protect them and hurt them that way.
Here's your choice: You can make your children confident and courageous, or you can make them safe.
But if you make them safe, and life isn't safe, you disarm them completely.
Despite the fact that life is suffering, people can transcend that by pursuing something of value. If there is no value proposition at hand, then there is no meaning to justify the difficulty of your life. He who has a why can bear any how. People who has no purpose in their lives first become bitter, and then resentful, revengeful, and the cruel, and that's just the start if you really are on the downhill path.
You have a lot of potential as a child, but none of that is capable of manifesting itself as freedom before you become disciplined. The order is necessary.
The most guilt you can experience is the sure knowledge that you're not taking care of yourself, so that you're leaving that responsibility to other people. That's pretty pathetic.
You're in guilt and shame, not only because you're not taking care of yourself like somebody else would have ask to, but you're not living to your full potential.
It's much more encouraging for people to concentrate on who they could by, rather than who they are. So to tell someone "you shouldn't feel good about yourself the way you are" there so much more you can be. People need to have a goal to come to term with their lives.
The self is everything you could be across time;
Imagine there's you and the potential inside you.
Potential is not yet real, but people act like if it's real. You should live up to your potential.
Potential is what you could be if you interacted with the world in a manner that would gain you the most informations.
Humility: what you don't know is more important than what you know.
Do you want to be right, or do you want to be learning;
Do you want to be the tyrant guy who has everything figured out, or do you want to be the continuously transforming hero, who's getting better all the time? That's a choice.
It's better to be the self-transforming fool, who is humble enough to make friends with who he or she doesn't know and to listen when people talk.
If you listen to people in your life, they'll tell you what's wrong with them, and how to fix and what they want. People would say something they don't even know.
