What is Success Or Failure or the Philosophy of Success

Now that’s a long title. This video is very witty and discusses the development of a career crisis and also delivers a definition of a snob which is, amongst others, the opposite of your mother. Enjoy this stimulating consoling presentation especially if you ask your self: What am I worth these days?

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.
