Thanks to Peterson, I went from being a 20 year old who thought about suicide his whole life, doing something I hated, to being at 22 accepted in one of the only four automotive design school of my country and going to the gym twice a week.

Nick Sievers (7 months ago)
He's is amazing. But this channel should rename themselves. It's not philosophy it's self help
Anil Palan (6 months ago)
As Simon Sinek has once said, Self-help is a scam. You can't help yourself. Admit that to need help then things can take a step for the better. This channel is about philosophy because most of the videos (this once not included) are about abstract philosophical things. Even then, this can also be considered philosophy. After all, the most effective help isn't sugar-coating reality, its when a philosopher whom is objectively wiser than you shakes you up and you accept that and pull yourself together.

Gary Church you’re absolutely right. I love that about him. He’s a theist, I think, and a lot of his worldview comes from the Abrahamic faith.

This fraud is a shill for the jews. He's helping spread degeneracy and supports white people hating themselves and their glorious white culture. Without white culture and masculine men we wouldn't have the society we have today that enables us to build the internet and services like youtube to help spread his shitty message.

What I don't get is that you emphasise that doing the work will make things better. For example, an exam. You study and you get an A. However, when I poured all of my effort in studying, I can only get either a C and a D. Believe me, I truly pushed myself to the limit on studying to get an A but failed. At the moment, I have no will to do anything besides sleep and play video games. I am waiting for another reason to try again. I'm stuck in this delimma where if I studied continuously for 1 year and got a D, how the hell am I gonna get an A in a month for the resits? Please help You already know that universities worth considering never look at students below C.
Liz Ward (6 months ago)
Be a teacher. You will already know how to explain things simply and how to lay out steps easily. You will have patience with people as you have been through the same situation yourself. Teaching primary in my country does not require high grades, an entrance exam, or you to be an academic. Plus if you can do well in it for a year, you can switch over to uni, as unis seem to look at the previous year only. Maybe things have changed since I was there. Just don't hide from real life in a gaming fantasy world, as it will stunt your emotional and spiritual growth. Get some responsibility in your life to make you feel better about who you are and give your life more meaning. If I was 18 and could start over I would be tempted to be a tradie. They make better money than student graduates in NZ. No student debt. All the best and do something you love. Never, ever do something you hate just for the money. You will regret it.

mav45678 (7 months ago)
Aaryan Ali you may suffer from bad teachers, bad teaching materials (books etc.) and/or bad studying habits. I was terrible at math in HS until I got a private tutor who explained it in ways that made sense to me. A year after, I was doing great at maths, and went to a good university for a computer science degree. Alternatively, you may just not be very academically gifted. Luckily, contrary to what many people believe, being good in academic subjects and geeting a degree from a reputable university is not a prerequisite for a good life.

I really admire how the person who runs this channel clearly worships Jordan Peterson and is likely a huge supporter of free speech and debate, yet refuses to acknowledge my questions.
rag proletariat (7 months ago)
I was reaching out to him because the name of the channel is "Bite-Sized Philosophy" so I was hoping to see more than just Jordan Peterson. He says interesting things, but there's already tons of videos of him on youtube. I wish the person who runs this channel would change it up sometimes. Oh well. You're right. the odds are not in my favor.

I finished college with computer science degree in 2013 at the age of 23, but couldn't find work in that field since I didn't have the necessary 2 years of work experience to work, but I also couldn't get said exp without working. 3 years after finishing said college without any work, in 2016 I finally found my first ever job at the age of 26, but it was as a security guard ( which needlessly to say, has nothing to do with my chosen profession of IT guy). I worked at that company for 1 year and spent most of my work time guarding hotels and working from 10 to 24 aka. 14 HOURS SHIFTS 6 DAYS WEEKLY WITH ONLY 1 DAY FREE, but to get to said job I had to get up at around 7ish o'clock in the morning to drink some coffee eat something get dressed, get dressed in that horrible piece of clothing called uniform (which gave me itches and made my neck look like I was getting hickies nonstop from nonexistant girlfriends from wearing that horrible material) get to company location get the company car at 8:30 in the morning to get in time to my work place at 10, and ge back from work to my heaven ( bed) at around 1:30 in the morning, only to get back up in the morning the next day again in the morning at 7ish. Which means when you count in the travel hours, I was working 17 hours daily! Many times ( I've lost count honestly) I found myself waking up during driving back from work from exhaustiion and the shitty car steering into the ditch on the right, or to the left where by the grace of God Almighty no cars drove at those hours of the night. This was mobbing at its finest since my employer knew the work condiditons and that I barely got even this job, and that my financial situation was in the shitter and iI couldn't leave. At the end of every month I've had over 300 hours logged in, only to get paid 17 kn per hour ( around 2.29 euros or 2.66 USD per hour). I quit that job the first chance I ever had. Since I had no wor exp in the IT, no work was found, AGAIN. I've found another sec. guard job in 2017 with a company offering better working conditions and closer to home. I have no girfriend, all my friends and former friends are in happy relationships or either have one or two Mini-Mes running around, and here I sit aat my job writing this long ass shitty comment which nobody might read, with no perspective on how to fix my life. Needlessly to say, I'M DEPRESSED...

Don't give up on your goal. If you want a job as a developer, have you built a portfolio of your projects? It seems you could do freelance work and slowly build actual work experience by freelancing. Make a mobile app. Make 10 mobile apps. Make a website or start an ecommerce site. Start a blog...do something to chip away at your goal. Lastly, you need to build relationships with people who do what you want to do. Find them, network with them. Keep pushing and you will achieve it.

Okay, go to a code bootcamp, that's what I plan to do if I can't earn a job after my Computer Science degree, write CODE, and build some small projects that excite you, check out Dev Mountain or Turing School of Design // yeah probably a bit of a scam but it gives you a kick to change your life and start a career

" it is said that every person should have 2 pieces of paper, one in each pocket. On one it should be said : " I AM BUT DUST AND ASHES" and that one you should take out whenever you feel like you are on top of the world and that no one is above you. And the second one should read "FOR ME THE WORLD WAS CREATED' and this one you should take out when you feel like you are not worth much, when you feel down and depressed. " - David Wolpe

My schedule monday-friday. I wake up at 10pm work 11pm to 7-8am. Have class from 9am-2pm and then do homework until I go to sleep (usually around 4pm) I don't really get a lot of sleep so if I get off of work early at 7 sometimes I'll take a nap before school. On the weekdays I have zero free time but sometimes my gf will come over when I do homework. The good thing about keeping my weekdays so packed is that by the weekend usually I have all of my work done and have 2 days of free time to dedicate to my social life and sometimes yard work and other things I need to get done.
It is how do you get it done? I'm going to have to do the same thing pretty soon and could really use some advice.

David Martin (7 months ago)
I would love to meet a guy like this at a party. I'm sick to death of boring superficial conversation about nothing of value. I enjoy deep thoughts and thinkers and find it refreshing that I can explore abstract thoughts with another person free of judgement. If you find yourself talking to jordan peterson over dinner or at some party It's your lucky day and I have a feeling you will walk away from the encounter forever changed for the better.

Tim Crinion ha ha yeah, actually I am a big fan. Just a funny thought. Imagine the light dinner conversation.... How was your week mate?...Well life is hard..there has been a fine line between order and chaos at work this week, and then there is the kings malevolence encroaching on our workspace. Lobsters and a clean room have helped but I can hear the ideologues building a gulag at the local university ..
Tim Crinion (7 months ago)
I would quite like it. Jordan's the kind of guy who never gets offended by you disagreeing. So I would be quite happy to discuss something meaningful with him. If not, there's always the option of going back to the party and talking about food/fashion/football/whatever humans usually talk about...

I think what he mend to say is that society doesn't learn you about how to become a better person. Society only learns you how to be productive and use your skills to create wealth. Not a single teacher or professor asks: WHO do you want to become in the future. They only are interested in WHAT you want to become. Which also is a fair question, because you need to make a living to survive. I, however, think that the WHAT question cannot be asked without the WHO question. In the not so very far away past, churches taught us who to become: love thou neighbor, forgive, do not hate, etc. etc. But with churches and other religious buildings closing all over the western world. People are starting to forget on which fundaments our societies were built. People have become lost sheep, the follow everybody in the pursuit of happiness through wealth. While true happiness comes from finding out WHO you really are and how you can make yourself a better person and then helping others to become better people. One cannot understand the world without understanding themselves.
