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.

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
He is my favorite modern philosopher now. Not too serious despite his serious chosen subjects. Recently, I am listening to Jordan Peterson and for my break, I go back to Alain de Button.
I AM FILIPINO AND I'M DROPPING THAT TITLE, FIRST AMERICAN PHILOSOPHER. IT'S NOW AVAILABLE TO AMERICAN MEN. YOU'RE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE NOT BEEN PHILOSOPHERS IN CENTURIES PAST. NOW, YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO GRAB THAT DREAM. THERE IS ONE CONTENT TO THAT TITLE, WHICH THE PLANET HAS NOT SEEN YET. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S.
It's silly to pursue money and status over the life like chinese.
I love this
Interesting speech and a lot of good points. Why then, several years later, has de Botton set up "The School of Life" which is a commercial organisation taking money off people who are interested in EXACTLY what he is lampooning here: The ambition to become successful via a huge number of "how to" courses which exactly reflect everything he is criticising in this speech. His organisation either employs or sub-contracts a mind-boggling array of get rich quick "gurus" who peddle quick fixes in order to be successful, self-satisfied, rich, superior, happy, and generally feel "good" about themselves via avenues that are the diametric antithesis of the noble tenets of this speech. It shows clearly that great philosophical thoughts are instantly corruptable.
Muito bom o vídeo. Alain de Norton é o cara. Sou seu leitor.

I think living a content and happy life is success disregard what others say.
Walking past your ferrari pretending the 93 civic is yours in the parking lot after this talk
This video is like the school of life one
I need Alain to follow me around and just talk.
He’s so cool. Isn’t he? 😍
This is exactly how I feel. After my bachelor degree in communication sciences I’ve got a mental break down. I felt completely shuttered by stress and anxiety. I was obsessed by LinkedIn and my resume. I quit my studies and think about starting engineering, then I changed my mind and attended a bachelor in economics. All I could read on LinkedIn was “requirements: at least economics or engineering BA” I speak 4 languages, I’ve got a lot of experiences in marketing and sales but isn’t enough. I didn’t focus on my studies and future and I’ve been eaten alive by anxiety of a perfect society. Thanks to this speech I’m now more relaxed. Success comes with constance and work.

He is absolutely brilliant! His philosophies resonate with me so much. The feeling of inadequacy, failure and shame that adulthood in this day and age seems to point out with such an intensity at times. Only make the already good journey hard to enjoy. By all measures, we are leaving in a pretty great time in the History of Humanity. Like many this days I have been trying Mindfulness at the center of my search to understand my kind of crazy;) visualization for my goals, positive thinking for my circumstances and forgiveness for myself and others. The ideas he expose on romance, religion/Atheism, pessimism and more are simply Genius! This for me is the missing link and confirmation to that voice in my head that told me It's not crazy to have "grandiose utopian dreams", specially when you break them down in practical applicable ways in each aspects of life. But what most people chase blindly and see as success this days is simply not align with the values of collaboration, community, kindness and the real desire of being good teachers and good students to the people we love. That is my take so far on what I have hear Alain saying in the past 3 days I discover him, only he says so much more with incredible fluency, eloquence and humor! Oh man intelligence it's so sexy :) In my Bucket list now, find a smart English man to practice good English with and share some of our crazy together and maybe talk some senses into each other or not ;)
