How To Be Confident

The fastest route to confidence is to stop being so attached to one’s dignity and seriousness; and plainly admit that one is – of course – an idiot. We all are. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/MFnpKd

“The topic of confidence is too often neglected by serious people: we spend so much time acquiring technical skills, so little time practising the one virtue that will make those skills effective in the world...”

I Iove this channeI because instead of bombarding you with the same useIess advice you have seen too many times before, it expIains to you, in a rather caIm and funny way, a new perspective of how you couId see things.

I presumed the painting was a comical representation of people acting out old dutch proverbs.
Like a duck holding a leek.

I liked that a lot! Earlier today I was just thinking that when you acknowledge and accept your weaknesses you just gained a strength.

Horrible advice, Yeah go tell yourself every day that your a fuckup... great for your subconscious and your self worth.

I find that the most interesting, coolest, down to earth, people I've ever met are usually people that are not afraid to show their flaws or embarrass themselves

This might be one of my favorit videos of all time.

One or two more acts of folly shouldn't matter too much... But they do. This episode would be more helpful if it acknowledged that our errors can be ruinous, especially when the rest of the world demands perfection and punishes people for their errors.

Nah, de Botton, you're the only idiot.

All the self help books out there suggest the opposite, which makes gaining confidence even more out of reach.

So calling myself an idiot every day when I wake up will make me more confident.? 🤔

Автор FABRIZIO Amberti ( назад)

This video helps. It really does. Sometimes you just gotta hear someone else say it to make it seem so simple.

That's it i know the answer is its ok to look like i fool but I didn't realize it, I always feel scared or afraid to go to strange office in some government building i want someone to tell specifically how and what and when to go there and ask beforehand, but now i will try it I'll go and do thing and ask we all stupid and we all look idiots no matter how good we hold ourself, some time we have the answer buy we need a little push

What of those of us who find parting with our dignity impossible? I swear, you never say anything of value in anything I've watched so far.

Автор Stefan Nincetovic ( назад)

..and I am a fucking imbecile myself ^.^

Faults, mistakes, errors, and all other "wrong" actions are actually the perfect imperfections that make us human, and help us grow and prosper, every day, in every way, throughout whole life.

Every single one of us is a nitwit,
and every nitwit is special and amazing in his own way.

..what kind of a nitwit are you? 😃

Автор Nousenesp ( назад)
I was an unconfident person and so shy, i was taking attention to other "cool" persons and all have their strange things and moments of ridiculous. It is in our hands to change that moments of shame in funny moments. Our attitude can change the way which others see us.

I know is difficult, but keep going and making things out of your confort zone where you can lose your "dignity"

Thanks to the video i will try to kiss a person when i feel that it could matters

the lack of confidence may not be rooted in "i feel i am stupid", it may simply be "i feel i am inferior". he is a lawyer, she is a banker, and i am just a waiter.

wow this guy is really on to something. for now on I'm keeping a blunt close to me when I watch these videos

Автор BakingBacon ( назад)
The best way to be confident is to think that everyone is gonna die and no one will remember us in 500 years and you might only get that one chance to do it comes once in a lifetime mom spaghetti and just feel like you have known that person you wanna talk to your whole life and just feel comfortable around anyone even when you feel weak and wanna give up you gotta search that mom spaghetti in you and find that inner strength and pull that shit out of you and just be yourself don't give a fuck about what people think about you, unless you really like that person, then just try to be comfortable and keep it cool.

Автор Au Chanel. Fantastique! ( назад)
So in other words, don't give a shit about what other people think, cos you're not going to be able to change their thoughts, so just go for it in whatever you want to do in life.

Автор Ismael Chouaiby ( назад)
Thanks, I needed it, but I don't think that saying to yourself everry morning that you are an imbecile is any good psychologically.

Автор Violaceous Phantasmagorical ( назад)
Well, having too much dignity results in heavy falls, and I agree with this video. But don't think that you're a fool though! That will just make one not want to change the world. I understand this video, but it slightly grazes the surface of the ludicrous. Depending on the composure of the onlookers, this slightly absurd claim may become downright fallacious.

Автор Violaceous Phantasmagorical ( назад)
Omg doing bizarre things in the night and dropping random stuff! LOLS

my entire personality is based around being a clueless idiot when im not, i usually know the answer already but i want to see other ppl's viewpoint and as a bonus it helps conversations along. i was a mess in high school when it came to talkin to ppl but by college this personality stuck and now it's my signature

I prefer to think that there is no fool people on earth and there is no thing or act is idiot
And all what i do is naturally everyone may it and everyone could fail !
the stupid person who think that someone is fool or stupid for Failing or doing some thing
Because we are HUMAN , we do mistakes we do fail to learn ! , no one doesn;t
This thinking is very comfortable
and it also help you to respect people
🐵note : i don't relay speak English , but i hop you got what i mean
:) ❤❤ ✨
and thank you sooo much for the Amazing videos

Автор J Prevatt ( назад)
Only my opinion but I think most semi to successful people in the world are confidence obsessed. Look at movies, music artists, actors , newscasters, publishers, magazine covers, anyone in mass advertising, all they wanna sell is confidence confidence confidence confidence... Skills at times fall by the wayside... Doesn't matter what you can do, as long as you believe you can do it well!! Even if you suck at it, who cares as long as the person who is doing whatever is CONFIDENT.... buzzword of the last couple decades.
Just something I have observed over the years

Автор MindUp ( назад)

This is so beautiful, charming, and comforting. I hope everyone who lacks confidence understands the message behind this video and embraces their idiocy.

Автор baja blast ( назад)
i only knew the painting bc of it's one of fleet foxes' album covers lmao

Автор Jasper Alkmaar ( назад)
Doesn't this mean you're making a 'bad' belief about yourself? .. Im totally confused, someone says tell yourself youre great. And you're saying, tell yourself youre an idiot? (Sorry if im wrong, English is not my main language) Anyway, the video sounds very interesting and the comments people give are good.

Автор Munene Ndereba ( назад)

But I honestly have nothing to say.
