A kinder, gentler philosophy of success | Alain de Botton sözleri
http://www.ted.com Alain de Botton examines our ideas of success and failure -- and questions the assumptions underlying these two judgments. Is success always earned? Is failure? He makes an eloquent, witty case to move beyond snobbery to find true pleasure in our work.

Own idea of success. I indulged and ate too much, now I'm suffering from indigestion. I'm so emotional at this very moment and I want to know if we are really responsible to define success on our own?
Watching this video reminds me of many videos of "the school of life" channel on youtube. The same accent, same styles
Religions have emphasised many of these points for centuries

Probably the most consistently entertaining TED I've seen. Some pretty good ideas, too.

I got 3 millions USD inheritance. I'm not proud of it because firstly it is from my dad secondly money success is not a true success. I recently realize that an intelligent philosopher living in a caravan is more successful than a billionaire who serves no benefit to the others. However, in order to deal with a snobbish culture, I will engage with people in conversation on material things instead of intellectual things. The general people are shallow and materialistic. Those are common acquaintances and I would not consider them as friends.
nature doesn't judge us and never disappoints
Twitter is now the #1 platform for ridicule, how things have changed in just ten years
Start from not being a snob first, then we are qualified to say to change the world.
this is just the way life is: scary. (I wish I could undo this programming!)
God I hate this line of argument. Why does Alain get to talk at TED? If meritocracy is bad than I don't have to listen to him... or climatologists... or my privileged doctor.
Just because some people are lucky/unlucky does preclude working to deserve something.
But sure, let's give out degrees and Phds via lotto.
This is simply one of the best talks I have watched - amazing stuff.
I really liked the talk, but I wish he paused between sentences. It felt like he was rushing to get through a lot of words in a short time.
Bullshit. Meritocracy does not imply any kind of "social darwinism" or the like. It's an expression in contrast to unfair favoritisms such as nepotism. Generosity towards those more unfortunate is not at odds with meritocracy.
There was a time in history that people of power were the only ones that could speak, be heard and respected. In our times of internet and available data (think quality), it’s NOT easy to appear in front of millions (thanks to YouTube) and deliver a message that is not opinionated, based on years of research and persuasive. Well Done!

God: "Oh man, it's been nearly 2,000 years since we sent someone down there. They're getting pretty mean and miserable, those humans" Angels: "Yep. I think it's time" God "What can I do differently this time? They weren't very nice to Jesus" Angels: "Well, you could make it so he doesn't know who he is. Maybe drop the magic because it's a giveaway. Actually, you could just send someone really insightful who makes people feel better about themselves, and encourages them to be nicer to others at the same time?" God: "Genius. We can get him to address the things that are making people anxious, guilty, depressed, unfulfilled, bored, miserable and jealous and help them to see what it means to be human and make peace with it and themselves". Angels: "Perfect. What shall we call him?" God: "Alain"
I learned that lesson about materialistic people being in need of love and attention when I was 15. And I learned in church of all places.
One of the most honest videos I've every watched. You sir have condensed so much information in this video that if there's book by you, I would like to buy many copies to gift it to my loved ones. Thank you good sir
