Dr. Jordan B. Peterson with Dave Ramsey on the number one thing we should be teaching and we don't do it all!Jun 21, 2023
Building a vision for your life is a fundamental step in improving your situation, both mentally, emotionally, physically and financially.
In this great clip, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson's insights remind us of the need for a plan and a sense of purpose to overcome obstacles and even poverty.
It is crucial for us to recognize the value of teaching people, especially our youth, how to build a vision, set goals, and work towards creating a meaningful future.
Prioritizing developing a vision is the only way to then be able to create a meaningful plan.
That plan will put you on track towards a successful and satisfying future.
In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind and lose sight of our long-term goals.
Taking the time to build a vision for your life can have a profound impact on your overall well-being and success.
In all our ShineOn™ programs we explore the importance of developing a vision using what we call a Clarity Map. It is a tool with a specific series of questions designed to take you into self-directed personal inquiry.
Questions like the ones Dr Peterson mentions...
Who do you want to be?
What do you want your life to look like in five years?
What are you building towards?
Why are you saving?
Why are you working?
What makes it worthwhile?
These questions and a few more come up in clarity mapping to help you form your vision and then make plans to make it real.
Through this process participants develop a clearer picture of what to focus on and take action.
We call the result of the experience, self-activation and it can be a total game-changer.

Love becoming, Lucy
Dave Ramsey: Talk about what you've discovered around the correlation between just mental health maturity and how that correlates to wealth.
Jordan B. Peterson: One cause of poverty is absence of a plan. You need to develop a vision for your life, and that makes delaying gratification, for example, and not engaging in impulsive momentary pleasure worthwhile, because you're building towards something that you actually want to attain.
And we're very, very bad at, in our society, at helping people develop a vision. We don't do it with students in school, for example. Who do you want to be? What do you want your life to look like in five years? What are you building towards? Why are you saving, for example? Or working? Like, what makes it worthwhile?
It's the number one thing we should be teaching people and we don't do it at all.
