Alain de Botton: A kinder, gentler philosophy of success

Alain de Botton, talks about a number of issues and strengths with our modern society and how we define success and failure. In his talk he hits some very great nuggets of wisdom about our need to for compassion and non-judgment and also how we need to define our own success.

I really enjoyed this video because it touched on something I’ve wanted to share for years. We’re in a very success obsessed society that has a very narrow definition of success. We easily get lost in what society defines as success and we never define for ourselves what that happy life will look like. Don’t get lost in society’s rules and definitions when you’re the one who decides your life.
