Rule #3: Make friends with people who want the best for you.

In Chapter 3 – using a painful anecdote from his own life – Peterson
discusses the incredible power of friendships for good or evil in our lives.

Having good friends is much more than just having people with whom we get to do fun things.

Good friends will challenge, encourage, support, and
even criticize you when necessary.

In short, good friends will be the iron that sharpens your iron and makes you a better version of yourself.

Pay attention to the people you call your friends.

About people who consistently pick bad friends, Peterson writes…
“Sometimes, when people have a low opinion of their worth – or,
perhaps, when they refuse responsibility for their lives – they choose a new acquaintance, of precisely the type who proved troublesome in the past.” – Jordan Peterson

A good framework of friendship has incredible potential to create and
sustain improvement for individuals as well as society.

Rule #3 Summary: Whether you are twelve-year-old or a ninety-year-old…
“It’s a good thing, not a selfish thing to choose good people
for yourself” – Jordan Peterson
