“Learn How to COMMUNICATE!” | Jordan B. Peterson (@jordanbpeterson) | #Entspresso


there isn’t anything that you can possibly do that makes you more competent in everything you do than to learn how to communicate nobody is going to care or listen to you and the very nature of influence and impact which is the leaders job is communication rise and shine it’s an expresso time what’s up believe nation it’s Evan this channel is designed to be a part of your daily success routine and help you believe in your Michael Jordan level talent so let’s start your day off right together grab your coffee and sip on today’s message develop your communication skills over to you Jordan B Peterson also if you want to know what Jordan B Peterson and other successful entrepreneurs have to say about building unstoppable confidence check out my 250 for confidence series where every day for the next 254 days I will send you a morning video for free to help you build your confidence the link to join is in the description below if you’re gonna speak effectively you have to know way more than you’re talking about I’m incredibly nervous to talk in front of you because you’ve got to be one of the most formidable people that I’ve ever heard up or ever listened to her ever seen so my question is again you’re one of the best communicators that I’ve ever listened to if I could be half as good at you or at communicating as you are I would be set how can I teach myself to do that practice you know really like well there’s a couple of things is helps to read a lot it really helped to write so if you want to make yourself articulate which is a very good idea then not only should you read but you should write down what you think and if you can do that a little bit every day 15 minutes maybe you could steal 15 minutes and do it every day but if you do that for 10 years you really straighten out your thinking if you’re gonna speak effectively you have to know way more than you’re talking about you know so if you this is often difficult for beginning lectures at university because they’ll do a lecture on a topic but they only know as much as they’re saying in the lecture and they get kind of stuck to their notes because of it but you want to know ten times as much as you are saying in the lecture and then you can specify a stepping path through it and elaborate with the other things that you know but to do that you have to do a lot of reading but you also have to do a lot of reading because that’s where the synthesize that’s where the synthesizing comes so that’s on the input side and then on the output side well there’s some tricks techniques let’s say like if you’re speaking in front of a group you are not delivering a talk to a group that’s not what you’re doing the talk isn’t a package thing that you present to a group there isn’t a group there’s a bunch of individuals and you talk to them so when I talk to a group I always talk to people one at a time and that makes it easier too because you know how to talk to a person it’s like can you talk to a thousand people well probably not because it’s too intimidating but there isn’t a thousand people there there’s a thousand individuals and so you just look at an individual and you say something and you can tell if they’re engaged they look confused or they look interested or they look angry or they look bored or maybe they’re asleep in which case you look at someone else and they give you feedback about how you’re doing and so one thing is to to have something to say yeah but the next thing is pay attention to who you’re talking to because unless you’re very badly socialized and that seems unlikely in your case because you know you present yourself at least moderately well you know and well I mean I don’t know you very well but at first but on first sight you know you’re doing fine so the probability that if you pay attention to the individuals that you’re talking to that your natural wealth of social skill will manifest itself is extremely high and so you don’t deliver a talk to an audience that’s a really bad way of thinking about you’re actually engaged in a conversation with an audience even if they’re not talking they’re nodding and shifting position and you know looking like this or and you can you can pull all that in and and and use it to govern the level at which you’re addressing the entire audience so the last thing I would say is well having the aim to be a good communicator is a good start and you think well I could bunch us that to some degree well there isn’t anything that you can possibly this is the whole point of a liberal education there isn’t anything that you can possibly do that makes you more competent in everything you do then to learn how to communicate I don’t care if you’re gonna be a carpenter I mean being a carpenter by the way is very difficult especially if you’re a good carpenter but if you’re good at communicating as a carpenter you’re like ten times better as a carpenter so the and this is something that the liberal arts colleges I think and I don’t know if they’ve forgotten it but they don’t do a very good job of marketing it’s like what’s the use of a bachelor’s degree a Bachelor of Arts it’s like well you can think you can write you can you’ve read something it’s like the economic value that is incalculable the people that I’ve watched in my life would be spectacular ly successful are they have skills clearly that that’s a minimum precondition but they’re also very very good at articulating themselves and so whenever they negotiate they’re successful well that’s kind of like the definition of success in life right you negotiate and you’re six it doesn’t mean you win because if you’re a good negotiator if you’re really good negotiator everybody walks away from the negotiation thrilled and so then people line up to do things with you so and that’s all that’s all dependent on your ability to communicate communication is one of the most important skills that entrepreneurs need to have and I think a lot of businesses fail because the entrepreneur cannot communicate well and if they even are sharing their ideas they are not convincing enough and so a lot of great ideas die you could have the next greatest idea that can change the world it’s sitting up here but because you can’t articulate it because you can’t share it because you can’t communicate it well because you’re not convincing enough to the people around you it will never take off the idea will die within you and I hate that I hate that because building a business getting the thing that’s out here out into the world is greater than one person no matter how much of a genius you are to build a business you need a team you need a team of people to help you go far and you also need to convince the media and customers and partners and suppliers of what you have is amazing if you are the only one who thinks that your idea is amazing and you can’t communicate or convince anybody else of that then you’re done the night idea dies within you and I think unfortunately that’s a lot of entrepreneurs so Jordan has three of his tips I’m gonna give you three of mine on how to be a convincing communicator step number one is have a powerful opinion you have an opinion what is it that you are trying to say make it mean something to yourself and to me and make that the first sentence every piece of content that you make if you’re doing a video that’s your first sentence you’re doing an Instagram post put it in there you’re doing a LinkedIn post an email a newsletter like put it in there you lead with your powerful opinion on what is wrong with the world or what your viewpoint on XYZ topic is make it mean something to me make me care so if I’m talking about communication how important it is for entrepreneurs a powerful opinion would be something like you need to learn how to communicate in your business or you will never get that idea that’s in your head out into the world and your idea will die inside you that’s an opinion where lots of people might say something like so if you want to learn how to build a successful business and maybe take your idea to the next level I think maybe you should focus on trying to improve how you speak and communicate like it’s so long it has lots of filler words you use words like maybe and potentially and someday and one day and I wish and we instead of I like affirmative stop worrying about what people’s reactions are gonna be and speak your truth always lead with a powerful opinion tip number two is emotional commitment this is where a lot of entrepreneurs really fall down you’ve got your pals of opinion you know what you stand for you know what you’re trying to communicate but when you get in front of a camera or when you get down to writing it doesn’t sway people it’s not emotional enough you could be saying all the best words when you get in front of a camera to make a video but because you are talking in a very boring very non exciting manner and because you’re so worried about saying the perfect words that you are memorizing something or you are looking at your script or trying to read from a teleprompter nobody is going to care or listen to you you need to have emotional commitment you need to feel the thing and how important it is while you are saying it for me I’m envisioning all of you I’m envisioning all the entrepreneurs that I’ve worked with who have these amazing ideas and they never get because they can’t communicate and even though I’m sitting here in an office by myself and there’s nobody around to actually connect with I’m just talking to a camera I’m trying to channel you I’m trying to channel all the people that I’ve connected with and seen and I want to make sure that your business does well and communicating is so important as part of that which is why I’m doing this video and hopefully the care the love the energy comes through in the content that I make and so sales and convincing people not enough against what they want but in a positive way like this is something that you guys can get together on is about the energy transfer you are not just selling a concept or an idea you are transferring energy whoever is more confident wins whoever is more convincing wins and it’s usually from whoever believes in their thing more if you absolutely believe in your thing and that this is right and it’s for them when they need to do this thing because it’s in their best interest not because you’re just trying to sell something down their throat but you really really really really care and if they feel that care as opposed to just words that you’re saying that’s how you bring them on board it’s great to have the best words but more important is the emotional commitment that you have behind them so the best test with any of this is watch back some of your content and watch back your videos read your newsletters see the copy on your website look at the story that you wrote about yourself and why you started this business does it get you excited it’s like boom boom boom boom boom boom like yes that’s right that’s why I do this thing or do you watch it and you get bored if you get bored and it doesn’t get your heart beating then do it again do it again and do it again and do it again and do it again you will be one of your best critics you will be one of your harshest critics and so we know if you look over your content and get to the point where you say wow yeah I’m really proud of that that’s when you start to win and tip number three is raise the stakes just make it more important if you want to move people so often we’re focused just on the tactics the strategies here’s the five things that you need to do and people say yeah yeah yeah great I love those the five things they write them down and then they never do anything about it you need to raise the stakes you have to make it more important you have to make me feel the pressure that if I don’t do this thing that you want me to do terrible things will happen right so if I talk about how important communication is me just saying communication is really important as an entrepreneur here are the three ways to do it it’s not as powerful as communication is one of the most important skills that entrepreneurs need to have because if you don’t learn how to communicate your idea and get it out there that idea will die inside you and your mission will never be realized and listen that paints a dark picture that’s going to an extreme and the idea is not to have hyperbole and make things bigger than they are but that’s a real case for tons of entrepreneurs that if they do not learn how to communicate properly their ideas will never get out there and their idea will die inside them and so your goal if you want to move people is to make them realize how big this thing is for them if they don’t take action you’re the expert you know where the road is going you see their future if they continue down that path they don’t see that future they don’t understand it it’s your job to help them see where this current path of action is gonna lead them and if they make the tweak they make the change to take your recommendations where it could go raise the stakes make it more important make them feel that it’s more important and it actually starts with you feeling that this message is insanely important now I’ve got a really special bonus clip that I think you’re gonna enjoy but for that question the day I want to know what is one powerful opinion that you have I want to actually start taking some action I want you to practice write down one sentence a powerful opinion make it mean something make it matter to you raise the stakes make it more important tell me what’s gonna happen if I don’t go off and pay attention to your message write down that one sentence this is practice time put it down the comments below I look forward to seeing what you have to say most leaders most businesspeople most entrepreneurs most human beings have never learned to be masterful communicators and the very nature of influence and impact which is the leaders job is communication I mean in school were you given a communication course very few people have been taught that in your personal relationships have you read books on communication well that leads to I mean in in an intimate relationship or even just with a friend it’s the little miscommunications that over time stack into loss in your intimate relationships it’s the little conversations that you could have had in five minutes if you have the tools to communicate and the awareness to speak so literally you could release the anger and build understanding and speak out your needs and feel the need to be heard all those little things if you had learned how to do that over and done it in five minutes with your intimate partner you might not have lost the relationship and in your professional life learning to communicate inspires your teammates you know if you look at the great leaders of humanity the Nelson Mandela’s the mother Teresa the Martin Luther King Junior’s the john f kennedy’s if you look at the great business builders Steve Jobs great example right he would be on the stage at the product launch and then that favorite line one more thing and that’s when he would reveal the latest piece of technology that would create industry dominance when Steve Jobs was at Apple well he was a masterful communicator and Bud Tribble over at Apple called it his reality distortion field Steve Jobs was a master salesman he knew exactly what to say to get people to believe in the impossible to allow their I can’t to be less valuable than their I can’t raise your standard Apple at the core its core value is that we believe that people with passion can change not one drop of myself work depends on your it’s supposed to mean if you want to learn more from Jordan Peterson on how to stop procrastinating and increase your productivity check out the video next to me I think you’re gonna enjoy it continue to believe and I’ll see you there I probably plan each minute and yes it leads to way higher productivity

    I totally agree. Communication is KING and every word you speak matters. Having a YouTube channel helps because you can get immediately feedback and make adjustments along the way. Digging your channel. Thank you!

    I felt this one. I'm working on communication every day, and it can be tough on my patience, but I know improvement is happening.
    It's interesting to actually think about the powerful opinion. I know what my YouTube channel is all about, "Inspiring You to Create Daily." But what is my powerful opinion? I'm thinking along the lines of, "You have a unique set of skills and passions, and when you hold back out of fear or pride, the world is missing out on what you have to offer." Or something like that… I'd like it to have more of an upbeat vibe to it. I'll keep working on it! Thanks Evan.

    "Learn how you to communicate"- Develop your communication skills-If you wanna speak effectively you have to know way beyond, very good point. How to be a good communicator? Read and Write what you think? if you do it everyday 15 minutes. If you want to speak effective go beyond (10x) for you to specify what you want to tell. Output and tricks, you are not delivering talk to a group, there is batch of individuals 😇 Look and observe and you can see if they are engage 😇 to have something to say you have to pay attention what they say. Natural wealth of social skill. You are engage with the conversation. Having an aim to be a good communicator is a good start. Example: carpenter. Spectacular people have skills, great in articulating things and good negotiation. Very good point! Thank you for sharing Evan 😍😍😍😍

    Communication is so important not just in business but in life communicating with your family your significant other Etc
    And like Evan was saying you can have the best idea in the world in your head but if you're not doing anything about it then you will never get anywhere with it.

    Life is short. You and I won't be here someday. It could be now, tomorrow, next week or in 25 years. You don't have as much time, neither do I, as we'd like to have. So, live the life of your dreams. Live in a beautiful state. Make your life the best, for you don't know when your short life will end. Thats my opinion. Thank you. How did I do? Thank you for your positive energy, I feel it. Very inspirational and meaningful. Sending you lots of love x

    I can relate to this. A lack of communication is not because I don't have the talent/skill, but often not having the confidence, connection, commitment, and obsession to make sure that I deliver it. Thank you!

    Hi Evan,
    I have been thinking of writing to you since really long. When i started watching your channel, I was not sure how it is going to help me, as the encouragement stay with you only till the video last. After that the journey is lonely, distracted and pretty monotonous. But I do watch your channel often and if nothing I got to know about so many different kind of great people around. In my country we have completely different culture about how entrepreneur and artists are looked at (I am a writer, storyteller and design thinker- all three are not understood so easily)! But yes, it is nice to connect to someone, somewhere in the world. 🙂

    Yup you could know all kinds of knowledge however, if you can't Express yourself then you suppress yourself locking the potential of all your inner geniuses within staying at the lower end of your psychological needs and never becoming your greatest potential….living in survival without purpose…..living unfulfilled and meaningless without debate and argument always agreeable and unable to make soul resonating decisions to become filled up.

    One opinion of mine that I think is really powerful is this:

    The massive importance for every individual to have an open mind, an ability which is I see as an absolute necessity for us to have in order to receive useful information from life, the world and other people correctly, as it is, uncorrupted by our own biases and ungrounded opinions, and it includes the willingness to let go of beliefs and ideas that by knowledge acquired this way reveal themselves to be unsustainable. To receive and believe facts when we perceive them even if they point to a truth or reality that we don't like. I truly believe that this is what we all need as individuals in order for us to evolve and expand our consciousness and make the world a better place, and I truly believe that a world without open-minded people will be a dark, hostile place full of prejudice, hate and violence, and full of people who acquire lots of dangerous, shortsighted habits that will destroy our environment and our society.

    This was a bit more than one sentence, but thank you for the challenge @Evan Carmichael, great video with a great message!

    If you don't even consider reading this few sentences, you will be one of the few seeing the fall of our country. The education determines the future of our young population. So it directly affects the future of you, your loved ones and all of us. Unless we do reforms about it we are going to fall, fall down HARD.[insert solutions here]
