The next time you see somebody driving a Ferrari..

Must-see motivational video: 

Alain de Botton: A kinder, gentler philosophy of success

"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."

"The next time you see somebody driving a Ferraridon't think this is somebody who is greedy, think this is somebody who is incredibly vulnerable and in need of love"

In a world where we are pretty much driven by the capitalistic hunger for consumption it is good to take a brake once in a while and remembering the things that really makes us happy. Hope you enjoy the video!
