Self confidence and Smelly Socrates

I was unaware of exactly how much a rebel Socrates was. He walked around barefoot and smelly challenging peoples beliefs. Now that’s self confidence. How often do we ask the hard questions especially if we have a well worn odour about us and no shoes.

Don’t let yourself be weighed down by what other people think, because in a few years, in a few decades, or in a few centuries, that way of thinking will have changed. Live now what others will only live in the future.” – Paulo Coelho

Following like a sheep is not the way to creative freedom. Self confidence is needed to break out of that box. Socrates challenged lazy assumptions. This entertaining video by Alain de Botton explores how we all can lead a true life.
