Own Your Ambitions

A kinder, gentler philosophy of success by Alain de Botton at TEDGlobal 2009

“We should focus in on our ideas and make sure that we own them and that we are truly the owners of our own ambitions. Because it’s bad enough not getting what you want, it’s even worse to have an idea of what you want and find out at the end of the journey that it isn’t in fact what you wanted all along.” — Alain de Botton (13:50)
