DJ : Joe hits the nail on the head about the fakeness and back stabbing sabotage that happens in the workplace. I worked with two old guys that we're such hypocrites it's still hard to wrap my head around their behavior. One old guy has talked behind my back several times to the point I don't even acknowledge his existence anymore lol. It's unfourtanate really. I have confronted him 1 on 1 about his behavior torwards me and told him directly that if he has an issue with me then bring it to me. He failed to do that about a week ago and complained about me helping him out with his specific job task. Helped out with a positive attitude and put my best foot forward but the guy still had an issue! I've now thrown my hands up and don't even acknowledge his existence anymore.

Dani ram : "Be kind to all creatures; for this is the true religion. " - Buddha

Jerry Bear : treat others as you wish to be treated, pretty simple.

TheGuy123321 : Don't let the bad apples spoil your inner beauty, my friends. It's not worth it to adopt their ways because it doesn't make life easier. To the contrary, it's far more miserable to be like them. Persevere.

lenceagle1 : As far as shame and guilt goes, I've found that thinking about the past is only helpful if we're learning a lesson. If we're not, we need to move on and just do better.

Wilsonhybrid ! : I think niceness comes from having a thick skin. If you know you can withstand the negative, you can afford to be positive. Negative people often don't think they can get by on their own merit, so they resort to nefarious covert strategies to get ahead.

CorbCorbin : Be Nice.....until it's not be nice...... DALTON IN ROAD HOUSE

Love Silvia Sweidan : Immense gratitude for your beautiful soul ... I LOVE your kindness and compassion <3

NickPDX22 : The reason and answer to life is #Love .. period

Hundooey does it : The power of positivity is real and arguably miraculous. Find your peace.

Hoskii : 2:24 when you talk about the guy in the hallway i find funny. I'm from the UK. When I visited America for vacation, whenever i was in a elevator or in a close quarters environment, everyone says 'Hello' and smiles. Here in the UK, if you do that, you're a really weird person. Really remarkable how cultures differ on the most minor scale.

Rawkstar : True, The state of society is very sad right now it's unbelievable how hateful a lot of people are and with 0 empathy of how they impact other people. I do my best to be polite and respectful but I've had times when I've held the door for a lady or picked up something they dropped and they just stare at me with a blank or confused look and don't say anything..

Adam Coyne : BE KIND. REWIND.

guilded calamity : I was raised to be polite and have manners and all that. We would wave and say hello to strangers..then I moved to more populated areas and they would look at me like I was crazy for saying hello to a stranger.

Kyle Fisher : manners maketh the man

Steven C : I would freeze too if Mr Rogan said hi to me LOL

Greg McMahon : Awesome Gents! Thank you and have a great day. 🙂

Happy Hour : Big difference between being kind and extrovert!!!

Fix It Angel : I definitely agree. Be kind to each other.

juan ribeiro : Everyone you meet is a lesson on how to behave.

ByVRM20 : It's all about the perspective you choose!!!

KorianBossMonster : My thing is, if you didn't get any Joy from helping others, would you still do it?

Rage G P : Joe "we need to be nicer" rogan

kschrop : Reppin Lancaster County archery!! My home town. Right on Joe đź’Ş

Halfazombie : This is literally why I can't work for others

chuck1prillaman : JRE Clips Great posts but could you please list the guest's name in the description? It would be a big help.

Cutting Edge : Scottish people give free lessons on manners to visitors.

Otaku Oxide : Nice to see that Joe is a fellow Pastafarai. may FSM season you

Have A Seat : This is quite refreshing

Paul Newman : You can be kind because that’s what good people do. Who wouldn’t want to be a good person..... I strongly believe, and a lot of monks and Buddhists, mystics do too, that actions have consequences, karma you will have to answer to. No matter how badly a person or persons are to you, don’t fight back, don’t be angry.... They will have to answer for there actions...... So just be a kind person and just smile, karma is going to be a bigger bitch than you ever could be.....

Deborah Carroll : wow the original sin as a basis for feeling bad or impetus to do better - yet a toxic core of self loathing to fester in the psyche ( a constant inner critic watching over us ) , this is a great example of Jordan Peterson’s mention of how life is suffering and our wretched life emphasis tempers our reality. Matthew Fox wrote The Original Blessing and The Coming of the Cosmic Christ ( he has authored over 25 books ) He was a catholic priest yet was excommunicated by the vatican because he had a woman on his staff who practiced wicca. See his interview that is part of the Canadian Film Board’s documentary called “The Burning Times”, the full documentary is on youtube Anyway I read The Original Blessing and it is very inspirational ( we have a choice to see our positive qualities and experience them ) i think shame became a negative pleasure that rotted away at our choice to give ourselves permission to enjoy the positive qualities of life ( especially when we see others suffering more than we are ) the boundary we set within ourselves of what we allow to be our guide and focus in life and for what will become our intention .... does affect at least the outcome of how much we can love ourselves despite any crap the outer world throws us.... education is part of our discipline to find answers for our behavior and comprehend the substance of our beliefs i went to a talk with the Dalai Lama as the main guest speaker where the topic was “is a non-violent world possible?” and twice during the hour interview the same question was posed to the Dalai Lama asking what the remedy was ( to solve violence in the world ) and both times this question was asked, the Dalai Lama said the same thing - that we can choose to smile more often and share more hugs with each other. Some people don’t feel safe enough to hug (or say hi to someone they don’t know ) and they need more of a boundary ....(who can know the exact underlying reasons for why some people limit their own growth) and yet communication can sometimes open a door to assist someone learning ....( we have to want something different and want to have more fun and pleasure to continue learning ) and also we must share to make our world better... Many people have something positive they can share with others ; creatively there are many ways to express ourselves .... yet that ugly monster of shame can keep people from attempting to do something. Once again the inner critic nags (self sabotage to prevent a catastrophe of remorse ) .... its like our intentions become self-fulfilling prophecies i agree with Joe , we aren’t really taught how to be friendly and courteous.... it seems the world is busy making a lot of other things happen yet teaching simple kindness is lacking .... picking appropriate venues for sharing is a starter ( pubs and podcasts , churches and 12 step rooms, meet-ups and boardrooms, gyms and dojos) ; the appropriate safe environment exists somewhere.

Perfect soul : As a 14 year old i learned all this by myself and what ive felt personally and i am so proud

InMaTeofDeath : Being kind is one thing but the scenario he described was just saying hi to some reandom dude for no reason. Sure it's a friendly thing to do but it's also true that sometimes people aren't interested in conversation and while they're out and about as they were they're not obligated to be kind to you. That's the thing I'm worried about, that guy did nothing wrong yet he was made out as the bad guy for simply not wishing to have a short conversation with a stranger, I don't see that as a bad thing.

Lookin more so everyday! : Exactly! Joe Rogan is the best!

Joshua Hamilton : love LOVE this podcast. Joe is so inspiring

802 Reptiles : Life is giving you whatever experience is the most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.

Joey Garcia : instead of be nice... DO right and risk the consequences

Larry Cork : Be kind to each other

jAM Ab : rules makes a human act to it and so are the norms !

Christie Verbeek : this is so great omg

Northenstar13 : Great video..Kindness cost nothing, but is so valuable.

jackjack121 : Dude if Joe Rogan said hi to me in a hallway id faint

tysswe1 : joe is back to his buddah mode. and that means something is ready to snap again.

Nathan Maxwell : I learned how to be kind through hippies! i know they get a lot of hate for god know what reason..but they are legit the nicest, selfless people ive hung out with, they all helped each other out and well thats where i learned the behaviour and i gotta admit it does feel really good to be of service to others!

Lootbox : i pride myself on having good manners and once i opened and held a door for someone and they simply walked through with no thanks

Mr. Carguy : Some people from big cities typically have this problem. It's a dog-eat-dog world to them. They had to be tough all their lives to live and survive. They learned if you're "too nice" people will step all over you. So when they see people that are too nice, they think "something is wrong with them"! I was actually told that by a couple of strangers I met from Baltimore when I spoke to them, believe it or not. Sad, really.

StutteringCrisTop10 : I believe everyone Is on their own. Life is not nice and it never will be. So just do your own thing. It always throws me off whenever someone does something nice for me. It fucks with me.

Logic Bombs : Be nicer and a better person not for someone else, not for recognition, but for yourself. Because you want to, and you want to be better. Great convo!

Ethan : Straight biblical scholarship going on here... jk
