Jordan B. Peterson, author of 2018 bestselling book “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos” and right now the most famous clinical psychiatrist in the world because of his incredible lessons on YouTube and his course “Self-Authoring.”

Here’s a handful of brilliant quotes from his lectures, interviews and book, all worth taking note of:

1. “Risk your security. Face the unknown. Quit lying to yourself, and do what your heart truly tells you to do. You will be better for it, and so will the world.”

2. “You don’t want to underestimate the degree to which you can change the way the world manifests itself to you by changing what you’re aiming at.”

3. “What would your life be like if you made use of all the potential that you were offered?”

4. “Instead of protesting and trying to change the world, first win the war of evil within yourself. To make the world a better place first do the things you have to do everyday. Can you imagine yourself in 10 years if instead of avoiding the things you KNOW you should do, you actually did them every single day, THAT’S POWERFUL.”

5. “The things that pose the greatest threats to your survival are the most real things.”

6. “Orient yourself properly. Set your sights at the Good, the Beautiful, and the True, and then focus pointedly and carefully on the concerns of each moment. Aim continually at Heaven while you work diligently on Earth.”

7. “Be the hero your mom wanted you to be.”

8. “The truth is a terrible thing but not compared to falsehood.”

9. “Compare yourself to who you were yesterday instead of who someone else is today.”

10. “Sit on your bed one day and ask yourself: what remarkably stupid things am I doing on a regular basis to absolutely screw up my life?”

11. “The right message to give your children is: there are dragons. But if you’re careful you can learn how to deal with them. And we’ll help.”

12. “Whether the gods are inside or outside makes very little difference to whether there are gods.”
